Hardy's 18th case
Cliff Hardy is flattered to be offered the job as head of security at the new Sydney casino. But the thought of office hours and wearing a suit put him off and he refuses in favor of his friend, Scott Galvani. But when Galvani is murdered and the police are indifferent, Galvani's widow pleads with Hardy to help. How can Hardy refuse? In the course of his investigation Cliff reluctantly takes the job at the casino where he meets the attractive but unpredictable Vita Drewe who is quickly added to Hardy's list of enemies. Galvani's killers are closer to home than Hardy anticipated; his life is on the line and so is his relationship with Glen Withers.
