DDC classification: A823.4 Summary: Frank Cousins is a knock-about sort of a bloke. He's also the owner and sole employee of the Tasmanian Private Investigation Agency and, as his dear old mother said, 'occasionally his own worst enemy'. That was until Frank meets Joe Shadii, aka 'The Pharaoh'. Frank is hired by a London based solicitor to find the twin sister of his client in Hobart. It starts out as an easy-peasy, money for jam case that turns nasty. Then an ex-girlfriend, the lost love of his life, calls upon him to assist her brother who looks like going down for the brutal murder of his pregnant partner. And of course, Frank takes on the case. But, as with most of Frank's life, all is not what it first appears. Smuggled heroin, a handful of murders and coming face to face with The Pharaoh was not what Frank had anticipated in trying to win back his lost love. It's all just as his dear old mother used to tell him, 'sometimes, life's just like that.' The Big Rort is the second in the Tasmanian Private Investigation Agency series, the first, The Long Con being published in 2017.
