A dead actress, a dead gambler, a dead professor, a dead fisherman …
With murder following his every step, determined under-achiever Steele Hill is tangled in layers of intrigue and deviousness.
Pulled from his cosy world of the racetrack, the rock-music pub and the gambling den, everybody the wise-cracking Hill meets is in danger, as he is sucked into the undertow of forces beyond his understanding. One ally is a reclusive teenage maths whiz, channeling Hendrix, and tapping into military software and magic mushrooms.
The fix is in and the bodies are piling up.
Leaping off the shoulders of Joseph Heller’s Catch-22, Iraqi Icicle is a wild and hilarious ride through the dark and murky worlds of gambling, drugs, politics and rock’n’roll.
To mark the launch of Iraqi Icicle (2nd edition), author Bernie dowling will be holding a book signing at the Pine Rivers Art Gallery.
Along with the book signing, singer-songwriter Maurice Hardy will perform Bernie Dowlings parody Da War Won and award winning bush poet long John Best will be reciting some of his best loved prose.
