Back Door Man
Hails, Ian McAuley 1957 -- 2002,
ISBN: 187534604X
Aphelion Publications , North Adelaide, 1993. First Edition
 Softcover Softcover. Very Good Condition/. First Edition. Nationalistic fervour and religious fundamentalism are on the rise. Drugs, espionage and sexual perversion are commonplace. The real enemy is the enemy within. Steven Plat is Head of a small National Security Organization. Entangled in an intriguing web of secrets and subterfuge, he finds himself at the back door of a city few care to see. If Plat fails, Australia may never be the same again. "Back Door Man by Ian McAuley Hails is the first wholly successful Australian conspiracy thriller." - MELBOURNE REPORT "The story is concerned not with the transient fashions in political causes but with the powers who work through the political system to exploit whatever can be turned to their personal gain. This is a more frightening prediction or, rather, societal analysis of a kind not unfamiliar in science fiction; revelation of an alien enemy within the system." - EIDOLON "Back Door Man is a remarkably assured work. Highest recommendation." - LOCUS "Tough and uncompromising, full of humour and sharp observation, Back Door Man stands firmly in two genres and does well in both: as exotic spy thriller and an ominous speculation on present-day trends." - THE AUSTRALIAN No damage to report, apart from fading of the spine.

Bitter medicine.
Paretsky, Sara,
ISBN: 0140113053
Penguin, London, 1988. Reprint
 Softcover Softcover. Very Good Condition/. Reprint. A clean copy, no reading crease, age toning of the page edges, no other damage In this novel, Vic Warshawski, heroine of "Indemnity Only", "Deadlock" and "Killing Orders", investigates Chicago's private hospital system. Through her friend Lotty Herschel, a top obstetrician who runs a clinic in a poor neighbourhood, Vic takes an interest in Consuela, 16 years old and pregnant. Reviews Since her debut in Paretsky's Indemnity Only, Chicago private eye V. (Victoria) I. Warshawski has been attracting both enthusiastic readers and critical acclaim. This fourth story narrated by the spiky detective is the series' most suspenseful so far. V. I. brings a teenager about to give premature birth to a private hospital where the mother and her baby die. Since the poor girl's own obstetrician is unavailable, Warshawski's friend, Dr. Tregiere, arrives from his inner-city hospital to check procedures; he's found murdered later. So is the supposedly bereaved husband, member of a street gang that atacks Warshawski during her tenacious investigation of the related cases. There are other appalling deaths as tough V. I. gets to the facts behind a tawdry coverup. The cast of the earlier mysteries again adds flavor here, and the big city's ethnic mix, as enlived by Paretsky, does too.
