Comments Roll With It

  • Bree T

    t’s a bad time for Tony Laver of the Major Crime Squad, to discharge his weapon, fatally wounding an armed burglary suspect. He becomes the sixth policeman to shoot someone dead in just over a year and due to some red tape and politics, he gets immediately reassigned – to the Mobile Public Interaction Squad. Tony doesn’t even know what that means but apparently he’s going to be spending the time until his inquiry riding around the streets of Melbourne on a pushbike.So Tony fronts for his [...]

    Detective Senior Sergeant Tony "Rocket" Laver fatally shoots a crim in self-defence and gets demoted from the hard arse Major Crime Squad to the Mobile Public Interaction (bicycle) squad. An action-packed police procedural ensues that includes: a persistent ghost, a drug war centred around a suburban supermarket, assassins in suits, the Wilderness Society koala, a growing body count, recognisable swathes of Melbourne and Torquay and the lingua franca spoken by their denizens.I will be first in l [...]


  • Karen

    Personally, and not just because the idea of Lycra and clicking around in those weird riding shoes makes me shudder, the idea of being sent to the Siberia of the Mountain Bike Police certainly sounds like a rather extreme punishment. Especially as Tony 'Rocket" Laver is adamant that the bloke he shot fired first. And he was a serial suspect in a series of armed robberies. So you might think that Laver is justified in being more than a bit miffed at the political machinations that are overt in hi [...]

    I couldn't resist the premise of Roll With It, an Australian debut novel combining crime, action and humour. Author Nick Place introduces Major Crime Detective Tony 'Rocket' Laver who is plunged in the midst of a professional and personal crisis after shooting a suspect dead in self defense. As the sixth Victorian officer to do so in as many months, Laver becomes a political scapegoat and is swiftly reassigned to the Mobile Public Interaction Squad, forced to don a neon jacket and bike pants to [...]


  • Rob Kitchin

    Comic crime capers always have elements that are a little exaggerated or stretch the imagination, with characters that are somewhat larger than life. At the same time, the story has to have some ring of believability about it. It’s a difficult balance to perfect. For the most part, Nick Place manages it with Roll With It, a tale about a good cop’s fall from grace and his increasingly desperate attempt to gain redemption. Laver the career cop demoted from elite squad to bike duty, Jake the na [...]


  • Sunnie

    Timing is everything. WhenTony 'Rocket" Laver kills a man in self defence hard on the heels of several other police shootings, political expediency takes precedence and he finds himself on the Mobile Public Interaction Squad which is wanker -speak for bicycle squad. The job is easy if a bit mind numbing but it doesn't numb Tony's cop instincts when something doesn't seem right. A hippy greenie, a nerdy supermarket employee and bad, bad men all combine to make an engaging, twisting,turning tale. [...]


  • John Bartlett

    This is a welcome addition to Australian crime writing.The characters are funny and zany; the crooks almost equally likeable.Despite the lightness of touch, there's a serious story underneath.Nick Place has a light touch but tackles the difficult questions too. Look forward to a sequel.


  • John

    fabulous, a rollicking read through inner melbourne, enough suspense as a crime novel to keep you going, and enough ironic humour kep you chuckling until the very end


  • Shane

    Predictable and full of cliches, but still enjoyed it. Some great characters be some very funny scenes.


  • Beth

    This is the story of a Melbourne elite cop who is involved in a fatal shooting of a criminal in the middle of a crime. The politicians decide to make an example of him for the sake of the publicity and, in the meantime, while waiting for his case to come up, he is shuttled off to the side to become a bicycle cop.While in this position, he comes in contact with some serious criminal activity and cannot get anyone to listen to him.This is the first book by the author and shows promise. The "outsid [...]


  • Jenny

    I LOVED this book. It is so nice to read a book that is Australian - in the language, in the characters and in the location. At the end of the book, I put it down, and I thought to myself - I'm really going to miss Tony Laver. There are not many books out there where the character feels like a friend by the end of it - this is one of those books. Highly recommended.


  • Marie

    I really enjoyed this. Having worked in Fitzroy and surrounds for 25 years it was all aobut the colour for me. The local identites, locales etc. I see those Lou's on their purple bikes every day. It's an enjoyabale farce and i look forward to reading the next.


  • Mic

    This is an excellent read if you like reading.It's even better if you're from Melbourne's inner north, as reading it feels at time like you've gone for a walk around the neighbourhood.But no matter where you live, just buy it and read it. Your brain will thank you.


  • Warren Olson

    This is fast moving police based mystery taking place in downtown Melbourne. I liked Places characters and style ; somewhat Elmore Leonard-ish, and look forward to another tale featuring the same main character/s


  • Steven Lewis

    Thoroughly enjoyable. Sequel, please.
