Cary Grant? James Stewart? Rod Taylor, even? Where are you?
So a standover man named McGurk (as a name for a standover man perhaps a little obvious, even cliched) has been shot in an underworld-style hit, and "Associates claim he had a tape recording implicating three NSW Labor figures in a bribery scandal." Honestly, this is just slack plotting. We've all seen this thriller so many times that we can anticipate all the moves. And the name McGurk is so close to McGuffin that we can only conclude that someone is toying with us.
