by Matthew Benns

Snappy Review

An absolute cracking read – lots of fun, and tongue in cheek hilarity at society, politics, and Sydney. Vastly entertaining!

Book Synopsis

A brand new mystery featuring Nick and La Contessa, the beloved characters from Matthew Benns’ smash hit nationwide newspaper serial.

‘Time for a martini, darling?’

Wise-cracking, cocktail-swilling detective duo Nick Moore and his glamorous Italian wife, La Contessa, receive a last minute invitation from the Prime Minister to a glamorous but intimate dinner party at Kirribilli House on New Year’s Eve.

The intriguing guestlist includes several top diplomats, a casino billionaire, a dodgy bookie, a controversial doctor, a social media influencer and, of course, Nick and La Contessa’s trusty beagle, Baxter.

But a dramatic revelation from the PM sets off more fireworks inside than outside … and that’s before the bodies start to pile up.

As suspicion falls on some of the most powerful people in the country, the race is on. Can Nick and La Contessa solve the case before anyone else joins the dying diplomats’ club?

Bonus story included! Go back to where it all began with Nick and La Contessa’s first adventure in the smash hit newspaper serial¬†We’re All In This Together.
