A new Order has arrived. No, it's not political although it is parliamentary as Canberra part-time sleuth John Order carries out his duties as a local MLA in the ACT Legislative Assembly. Political life is never without its odd challenges and Order is asked to investigate the death of an overseas visitor whose fall from a highrise hotel balcony is viewed as murder by an elderly constituent. The request coincides with the opening of preselections for the next poll and Order finds himself under serious threat to his candidature by determined forces. And this is just for starters.
