Award-winning writer Jon Clearyâe(tm)s new novel featuring the popular detective Scobie Malone, in which he reveals a corrupt and ruthless conspiracy surrounding the Olympics.

As Sydney prepares for its grand role as host of the next Olympic Games, Scobie Malone is confronted with solving a scam that does nothing for the cityâe(tm)s image. Lurking beneath a facade of respectability, illicit deals are being struck and money from Hong Kong is being banked in large quantities. But whose money is it, and where is it really from?

The people responsible will eliminate anyone who is a potential security risk: students and businessmen are being publicly, and privately, executed âe" with the same sinister, systematic style. Meanwhile Scobieâe(tm)s investigation is frustrated at every turn by a wall of silence as vast as the Great Wall of China, making progress impossibleâe¦ until he finds the cracks which will lead him to the unexpected truth.

FIVE RING CIRCUS is vintage Cleary, well-written, compulsive, entertaining and topical.
