Description
Paperback - He was a jockey called Jose Ramirez. He'd been dead a long time. His arms were scarred with needle-tracks. But it was a knife, not heroin, that had killed him. Alistair Rye was the last man to see him alive - and they'd had a fight. A knife had been involved. Now the police in three countries were after Alistair: for murder; for drug smuggling. Two people knew that Alistair was innocent - Alistair himself and Claudia his wife. She could clear him. And she would. Wouldn't she?

In overall good condition - but has remnants of a sticky price label on the front cover

Description

In Two Up Down Under, Ron and Jim enjoy a road trip around Canberra and the Riverina in Jim’s 50-year old VW Kombi, Miss October. As well as the journey, the story of Miss October is told, and, as would be expected, there are over 190 photos mostly in colour as there is a focus on both flying and on vintage aircraft in Australia.
