WARNING: This book contains sex, violence, nudity and adult themes. Not to mention numerous jokes about bodily functions and rotting rubbish.

Dave runs the biggest rubbish dump in the state. Rubbish and money are all he cares about, although he does have a growing desire for the loyal pig farmer's daughter. But when Dave goes off to Paris on a government sponsored fact-finding tour, he has no idea how his life will change.

The head of the Paris dump offers to pay Dave to take some 'harmless' packages off his hands from a French Pacific island. Easy money and not much work, Dave thinks. That is until some Arab terrorists become interested in those packages, and the Israeli secret service becomes interested in the terrorists. From then on things become decidedly dodgy.

An action comedy that romps through crazy business schemes, lust, and the odd scientific breakthrough to steam-roll its way to a climax amongst the revolting, rotten and reviled rubbish of the dump!

About the Author

Simon Klapish was born in Manchester, England. After graduating as a microbiologist, he came to Australia in 1979 on a one-year work permit. He then migrated in January 1982. His family’s experiences of life and work in Northern Ireland provided the backdrop for much of his first book, Ripples of Revenge .

Simon joined the Australian Army Reserve in 1982 and went on to be a Captain, holding various roles in an infantry battalion, and then training officer cadets in tactics. He retired from the Army Reserve in 1993 in order to complete a Masters Degree in Business (Marketing) at RMIT University.

Simon worked with Telstra for 11 years and is now the Marketing Executive for Hazelwood Power. Simon has travelled extensively, having visited over 50 countries. He is married to Leslie and has a daughter, Emma. They live in East Bentleigh, Melbourne.
