“Will leave you in awe” ★★★★★ Glam Adelaide 2021 

Australia’s favourite American mentalist detective is back!  More murders!  More explosions!  More punctuation!!!#@%$! 

Wowing crowds the world over, this hilarious gumshoe is part comedian, part mind-reader, part magician, part storyteller, & all gritty retro 1930‘s film-noir! Think Boardwalk Empire meets Naked Gun meets Derren Brown. Based on a story by Dashiell Hammett.
