........Actor William Power's stage skills are not good; his detection skills are worse. In fact, he's more like Basil Fawlty than Sherlock Holmes. The only gift he has is a capacity for being in the wrong place at the wrong time!
........This outrageous series of crime-caper novels is set in war-time Australia of the 1940s. The narration is good and the historical details are well researched..



#1. Good Murder [8 hours 50 mins] 2004
It's 1942, and war is raging in Europe and in the Pacific. The Japanese army is on Australia's doorstep, and the small coastal Queensland town of Maryborough is on full war footing. What they are not prepared for is the arrival in the town of a troupe of incompetent actors whose unjustifiably self-confident leader, William Power, is determined to bring his daring production of Titus Andronicus to the barbarians of rural Australia. Unfortunately for the Power Players, the only gift William Power has is a capacity for being in the wrong place at the wrong time. When a young woman goes missing and is found floating dead in the town's water supply, Power becomes the prime suspect in her murder. With every misplaced step he takes, he becomes more and more embroiled in a series of crimes which baffle the police and horrify the locals. Having no confidence in the constabulary, Power decides that his only option is to solve the crimes himself. His acting skills are not good; his detection skills are worse. As he stumbles towards a solution and as his injuries mount up, he never wavers in his belief that he alone can bring the killer to justice. But, with every day that passes, he tightens the noose around his own neck until, on the night of a violent storm, everything changes. And not for the better...

#2. A Thing of Blood [8 Hours 20 mins] 2005
As World War II drags on, failed Shakespearian actor and would-be private detective William Power returns to Melbourne. Needing to escape the maternal home and a growing police investigation into the kidnapping of his odious sister-in-law Will rents a room in the Parkville home of wealthy charismatic and obsessively neat Paul Clutterbuck and is introduced to an underworld of bohemians black marketeers and neanderthal henchmen. Power is fascinated - until a savage murder is discovered. A Thing of Blood is a brilliant wry sequel to Good Murder that perfectly recreates the tension and fear of wartime Australia and takes the murder-mystery to new comic heights...

#3. Amongst the Dead [8 hours 15 mins] 2007
Fresh from foiling a fiendish conspiracy to assassinate the Catholic Archbishop of Melbourne, Will Power's unique detective skills are, once again, in demand. The Japanese army is rampaging through the islands of the South Pacific and Australia's front line of defence is a top-secret, crack division of men embedded deep in the tropical wilderness of northern Australia. But something is threatening their vital, covert mission: one of this elite corps is a murderer, preying on his comrades, one by one. With a case too sensitive to be trusted to the police, military intelligence turn to the one man whose singular combination of abilities make him capable of infiltrating the clandestine military operation and rooting out the killer. Will Power goes into deep cover, posing as a cheap, vaudeville entertainer on tour to relieve the troops. Enlisting the help of his brother, whose latent skills for female impersonation rise to the occasion, Will soon finds himself in the far-northern outback trying to raise the morale of a group of desperate young soldiers lying in wait for the arrival of Tojo's army - knowing all the while that one of them is the killer...

#4. The Serpent's Sting [9 hours 5 mins] 2016
William Power, actor and sometime private inquiry agent, has returned from the Northern Territory, shaken, stirred, and generally discombobulated. ‘I survived the tropics with my life and my looks intact, despite the best efforts of the flora, fauna, and Military Intelligence to steal both from me.’ It is late 1942, and in what he believes is a demeaning sideshow to the war, he finds himself playing a pantomime dame. But murder again intervenes. If only this was his only worry, but, as his great hero, Shakespeare, noted, ‘When sorrows come, they come not single spies, but in battalions.’ Can Will finally overcome his tendency to be the living embodiment of Murphy’s Law?
