Bertha Cool was in a flap. The distinguished Mr Homer Breckinridge had been waiting twenty minutes for Donald Lam to make an appearance, and around Mr Breckinridge was the heady aroma of C-A-S-H. Then Donald appeared and in no time found himself hired to investigate an insurance claim. 'Such nice, safe, respectable work', purred Bertha, 'and it's up for grabs.' But it didn't take Donald long to find out he was anything but safe and that he was the one up for grabs ...

A fighting team with a very special difference... In times gone by, the looting didn’t start until the foe was vanquished! But in North Africa nobody bothered to hang around for the enemy to retreat. With half of Egypt waiting open-armed for anything going, people stole whatever wasn’t screwed down – and flogged it on the Cairo black market. The British... The Italians... and Rommel’s Afrika Corps: they all used each other’s captured weapons, stores, vehicles – even their uniforms. This is the enthralling story of an unlikely group of fighting men – the Desert Ratbags – a concert party stranded behind enemy lines. Their very special skills, from pilfering to stage performing, help them not only to survive, but also to see a little action for themselves. An enthralling, suspenseful tale of WWII, perfect for fans of Alistair MacLean, David Black and Jack Higgins. Praise for Max Hennessy ‘Mr Harris is a master storyteller’ Sunday Mirror

"Grand reading. Rothchild's scenario deliciously underscores the bizarre quality of Florida."--Publishers Weekly "A story of rapacity and gall told with bemused admiration for the waves of visionaries and scamps who have left their mark on the Sunshine State . . . a tale of the wild, wild South in which motives, loyalties, and identities are lost in a tangle of crime and counterinsurgency."--Time A wandering Floridian who made his way home in the early 1970s, John Rothchild writes about the state with the savvy of a native and the perspective of an outsider. His personal and historical travelogue reads alternately like a litany of 20th-century ills and a Monty Python rendering of the Great American Dream. In Florida, both versions are true. Settled through the chicanery of a few enterprising brokers and real estate wizards, Rothchild's Florida is a civilization built from scratch, out of the most unusual ingredients. While much of the state seems younger than many of its inhabitants, he observes, it hosts all the modern demographic, economic, and social problems. Still, those ills don't dispel the magic of its sunshine, beaches, and exotic fauna or undermine its status as a great American myth. Told within the framework of Rothchild's travels from Miami to the Everglades, around the state and back again, Up for Grabs is part history, part travelogue, part journalism, part autobiography--a humorous and appreciative tour of a society fabricated from a state of mind and erected on land that was "ninety percent underwater ninety percent of the time." John Rothchild , a former editor of Washington Monthly, columnist for Time and Fortune, and contributor to Esquire, Rolling Stone, Harper's Magazine, and the New York Times Magazine, is author or coauthor of nine books, including A Fool and His Money and Voice of the River, the autobiography of Marjory Stoneman Douglas. He lives in Miami Beach, Florida.
