MAXIMUM SECURITY is a collection of three of Robert G Barrett′s Les Norton stories:
MUD CRAB BOOGIE
Extreme Water Polo is the water polo of the 90s. And when Les Norton catches the semi-final on TV he is amazed to see that the man behind Extreme Polo is his old mate, Neville ′Nigzy′ Nigson. So when Neville calls out of the blue and asks Les to drive the Murrumbidgee Mud Crabs up to Sydney for the final, Les takes him on. But things are never as simple as they seem and Les finds himself drawn into an hilarious adventure involving the Mud Crabs.
Les Norton is off to Far North Queensland!
What should have been a quick gig on a radio station followed by a white-water rafting holiday in North Queensland becomes a four-wheel drive trip to Cooktown with Norton looking for two missing SCUBA divers. The army, the air force and half the Queensland water police couldn′t find Jade Biscayne and Horden Genting. What chance does Les have?
Along the way Les finds the Rainbow Princess, out chasing UFOs and predicting the future. He also finds man-eating crocodiles, heat and humidity, and everywhere he goes ratbags have it in for him. Then, in a place of indescribable beauty, Norton uncovers unimaginable terror...
THE WIND AND THE MONKEY
A week′s holiday in Shoal Bay courtesy of Price Galese? Sweet.
Help Eddie Salita pop a bent copper named Fishcake Fyshbyrne while you′re up there? No worries.
Solve a mystery on Virgin Island with a sweet little girl named Digger? You beauty!
Les Norton, the lovable larrikin from the sunshine state, is back and is heading north, with a little bit of work and a hell of a lot of play in mind. But he had better watch out for hungry sharks and local louts with no manners; and gung-ho federal police with no bloody idea! As the saying goes, he don′t go looking for trouble, trouble comes looking for him.
