A petty drug dealer disappears, presumed killed. His Cousin Epi, who works security and has ambitions to become a private investigator, is determined to find out what happened to Harry. Is Harry really dead?

Epi enlists the aid of his policewoman girl-friend and goes about the task of behaving like he imagines a private investigator should behave. Asking questions, following clues, belting people and getting belted, and even finding time to take his girlfriend out to dinner at Melbourne’s finest Greek restaurant.

Despite fending off his ex-wife, having his son for a weekend visit, dealing with sarcasm from all sides and surviving getting shot at, Epi manages to advance the investigation and discover the terrible truth about Harry.

About the Author

George Eraclides is the authorised biographer of Mr Epictetus Angelakakis, the private investigator and security consultant, who has operated in the northern suburbs of Melbourne, Australia, since the late 1980s. Involved in some of the most famous, and not so famous, cases involving the good people of the north, Mr Angelakakis has been extensively interviewed and his exploits fictionalised to protect the innocent and the ratbags he has had to deal with. The biographer has also captured the underlying philosophical foundations, indeed the very ‘grounding’ (as Heidegger would say), of Mr Angelakakis’s investigative practice. In other words, the bullshit that gets Epi going. Anyone who aspires to becoming a criminal investigator, or is interested in the workings of the master-detective’s mind, will find much to ponder in this work. Or not.

If the world is dragging you down and you need a good old fashioned laugh, read ‘Finding Harry’. Set in 1989, a kinder, simpler world, Harry’s cousin Epi, a well meaning klutz, qualified as a private investigator through ‘The Manual of Detection’, tries to find his cousin Harry who has gone missing in the murky world of illegal steroids and seedy gyms. Aided and even hindered, by some hilariously inept characters from the northern suburbs of Melbourne, we seek Harry. Meanwhile Epi romances a police colleague, subverts his ex-wife’s attempts to gentrify their son, comforts his mothballed Greek aunt, Harry’s mother, and tangles with some seriously nasty people.
