'When Charlie's good he's great. But when he's bad he's better!' John Ibrahim, author of Last King of the Cross

Charles Staunton is a good cop, a gun footballer, a loving husband and father. Until his refusal to turn dog and inform on his corrupt mates sees him sent to jail and sacked from the police force.

Charlie is jobless and broke but his staunch loyalty and courage under fire make him a 'good bloke'. And in a world of shadows, where trust is the highest currency, that reputation can be worth its weight in gold.

Charlie becomes a private detective and Mr Fix-it on Sydney's 'Golden Mile', respected and trusted on both sides of the law. His associates are colourful, their adventures hair-raising. The good times roll Charlie around the world, into fancy hotels and restaurants... and smack bang into a gig with the Pacific Mariner Cartel.

Cunning and suave, cool under pressure and handy when the shit goes down, Charlie now becomes 'The Prince' - a mythic smuggler of millions of dollars and euros to the farthest and darkest corners of the earth. Until the DEA kicks in his door and charges him at gunpoint with trafficking 25 tonnes of hashish.

Busted but far from broken, Charlie's troubles are just beginning. Stuck in Canada's toughest prison, between two fiercely warring bikie gangs, he must use all his street smarts and charm to stay alive. After all, there's a double-date with Madonna and an appointment with The Godfather of the London underworld to get to...

About the Author

Born in a London taxi in 1958, Charles Staunton emigrated to Sydney with his family in 1965. He joined NSW Police in 1978 but was drummed out in 1987 after refusing to 'grass' on colleagues. Charles built a career as a private investigator and Mr Fix-It in Sydney and then a globetrotting money smuggler for the Pacific Mariner Cartel. In 1997 in Montreal Charles was arrested by the DEA for trafficking 25 tonnes of hashish worth over one billion dollars. He served three years in supermax before being deported to Ireland. Today Charles works for GT Porsche and as a bodyguard to A-list celebrities. He has two sons, four grandkids and lives large in London.
