THE LOWEST DEPTHS
By Ross Fitzgerald, Ian McFadyen
Hybrid Publishers,  Fiction
200pp, $24.99
Reviewed by Cheryl Akle
Ross Fitzgerald and Ian McFadyen team up again to write the 8th book in their amusing Grafton Everest series.
When we last saw Dr Professor Grafton Everest, he’d become President of the Republic of Australia, spending most of his term on a goodwill tour of the US.
In The Lowest Depths he’s the ex-president, his wife has left him to travel, and he’s caught up in a web of trouble and intrigue. An assignment with the UN results in some interesting information about his family history coming to light, leading Everest on a journey to Moscow, and then to icy Siberia to discover more.
This is political satire at its most outrageous, and it’s fun.
