About this title:

Synopsis: There are dirty deeds afoot at the Vatican. The U.S. President is in the gun. France is facing a crisis; and Paddy Pest is flirting with a lady on a train.

Murder and mayhem! It's all in a day's work for Aussie crime-fighter Patrick Pesticide aka Paddy Pest. Disreputable rogues and villains are out to get him, but he survives on his wits; with considerable help from his beautiful side-kick, Stormy Weathers.

Pest has to deal with serial killers, the mafia and fundamental terrorists: not to mention those pesky Russian assassins Gregoria Killanova and Nadia Nickoff, the minx from Minsk.

The lady on the train; the big splash; starlet by starlight! These are unbelievable stories and Paddy Pest is one of Australia's greatest exports.

From the Back Cover: It is easy to provide surveillance on a train. Your movements arerestricted, and there is nowhere to hide. Most of the bad guys have oneof their operatives permanently employed as a porter, waiter or ticketinspector. In that way, they can steal your luggage, poison your food orspray Sarin gas into your compartment. Yours truly can usually pick thema mile off . In this case, it was the comfort officer.Ms Schnicklfart was far too young to be a competent comfort officer.You need years of experience for this kind of assured service, and she wasjust a slip of a girl. Nevertheless, I would not be underestimating her. Shedid have some qualifications. Th e top three buttons of her blouse wereundone, and she really did look very comfortable. My antagonists wereshrewd people, and they had been well briefed. They knew that I had a bitof a weakness for the ladies."Mr Pest, 'ello. I am Anita Schnicklfart, and I see to your comfortin this first class compartment. We 'ave complimentary hot beveragesavailable. Also superior reading material! The train vill stop at Visp andBern, and we vill arrive at Zurich at approximately ten o'clock. Is thereanything more I can do for you?"I don't need to tell you what thoughts were passing through my mind,but the presence of another person in the compartment stymied thatkind of thinking. A portly parson was slumped up against the window ofthe carriage, quietly snoring into his double chin. It was hard to believethat this sweet young thing was a cold-blooded murderer, but if I didn'tentertain this possibility I could end up as a cold-blooded corpse.
