The Big Ask - A disastrous election result is looming, and Murray's days as a political minder seem numbered. With a runaway son on his hands, the police at his heels, and a gun buried in the backyard, Murray Whelan faces his toughest test yet. Something Fishy - Even in the political wilderness, hope springs eternal for the Hon. Murray Whelan MP. He has found true love and there is a baby on the way. But in a world of abalone poaching, shady restaurateurs, tree-hugging ferals and teenage romance, you can depend on Murray Whelan to stumble upon Something Fishy. Sucked In - When the remains of a long-lost union official are found in dried-up Lake Nillahcootie, Murray Whelan soon gets sucked into some murky waters. His old mate Charlie Talbot is implicated, the press are sniffing around and Labor's enemies are lining up for a free kick. Then there's the blackmail attempt. And as if that wasn't enough, there's an ALP pre-selection going pear-shaped.
