SCAM A-LAMA Hardball

 

FUNNY SCAM Series – Book 2 PREORDER NOW

The knives are out again for Aussie Rock Dinosaur Marc Charles in this new high-amp, Classic Rock & Soul madcap page-turner.

In “SCAM A-LAMA HARD BALL”, Book: 2 in my “A FUNNY SCAM” series, Marc thinks all he has to do is to sign the contract for his new album to reboot his career. But wouldn’t you know it, there’s a catch… isn’t there always?

With the help of his teenage son Jasper, Marc rewrites the awful song they’ve been stuck with as part of the deal, and makes it sound like a hit. By now he’s fallen head-over-hocks for Sam, the PR Princess who works for Todd Bertilson. He’s Marc’s millionaire nut-job neighbour who’s got yet another agenda.

And then the crap really hits the blender. First it’s the Tax man, followed by some nice and nasty Bosnians, a vengeful groupie, a crass Shock jock, the album almost getting canned and lots of fun and games with the internet. There’s ICAC, the NSW corruption watchdog, a half-witted secret agent, and we mustn’t forget the extra yummy mystery ingredient in Tarquin’s scrambled eggs either, must we?… or, come to that, Sam’s jailbird ex-husband, Barry the mega-embezzler.

Finally, against all odds, with his sidekick, Howie, Marc tries to finish the album, to squirm his way out of most of the tacky tight spots he’s got himself in-and then make the big launch. It’s The Dinosaur’s chance to hit the big time again and win Sam’s heart. That’s “SCAM A-LAMA HARD BALL” for you. What could possibly go wrong?

Fast paced and off the wall, it’ll keep you hooked right until the Bitter Lemon.

If you liked Carl Hiaasen’s Star Island, you can bet the sex and scams and schemes in this book will hit the spot. Give it a shot.
