"Ask anyone who knows him: Paddy Pest is a real character.

Paddy is an Australian crime fighter with a dubious Irish background, an overwhelming abundance of confidence, and a handful of bad habits. His enthusiasm for finding trouble is only exceeded by his incompetence.

Fortunately, his pal and sometime sidekick, Stormy Weathers, is usually available to rescue him from his ill-advised forays into foolish and reckless situations—frequently involving the fairer sex. From Yvette Baguette, the delightfully French gendarme, to Paddy’s nemesis, Nadia Nickoff—the minx from Minsk—Paddy is a lady’s man all the way.

Murder and mayhem are all in a day’s work for this Aussie crime fighter. He needs his wits to survive the onslaught of the disreputable rogues and villains who are out to get him. Paddy’s life is one big, unbelievable adventure after another. And now, he’s got a certain lady on a certain train who needs his help—or does she?

The world needs someone like Paddy Pest—and if you doubt that, just ask him!"
