The Lying Machine is a novel of epic proportions from the renowned Australian literary master Doug Moody. Blake Winton is a habitual drinker, an alcoholic on the brink. He has wasted most of his life, it would now appear that he will waste what remains of it. An idealistic geriatric called Mad Mick comes knocking with ambitions to enter politics to uphold the rights of paupers. The horror that is the great Magumba wants to kick Blake's ginger to kingdom come, and who is the mysterious Sarah Strangelove? Will a major disaster on Sydney Harbour be made worse by a pint sized incompetent known as Cornel Borbles. Meanwhile Blake and his old mucker Rodney Stanmore have invented a ground breaking machine which can expose anyone who is not telling the truth, such a device could destroy civilisation as we know it. Why are a washed-up British theatrical agent, a senior member of the royal family, the oddball Doodah Dave and a despicable chook killer known as The Sandalman lurking around Blake's backyard? Will vile women continue to trash every male in sight, and will Blake's best mates turn on him? Read on and be more
