Between the crocodiles, the sucking-up politicians and the red smoke grenades, there are lots of laughs in this novel. But you probably need a quirky sense of humour to best enjoy it.

The book is set in Australia but some of the main players are expats and the back story is rooted in an orphanage in south London.

Follow some idiosyncratic characters trying to thrive in a world beset with its environmental and societal issues.

The most over-the-top of all is Major Jeremy Billycock-Smythe ("Oh, do call me Major BS, old boy!"), who is a former British soldier, failed mercenary and bumbling adventure tour operator who puts his business interests on hold in a bid to save his wife's historic Australian homestead Rowbottom.

Along the way, he is recruited to carry out a top-secret government mission.

What happens?

Well, we can't give that away. Not to just anyone anyway.

Unfortunately, unless you have a top-level security clearance, it says on the back cover of the book you can't read what's inside. Though come to think of it, perhaps that is just satire. BS perhaps.
