Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Fourteen-year-old Neddy and his mate Les take swift revenge on the chicken-rustling Lynch Gang, but things turn sinister when vulture-like Hubert Salter stalks into town. There's a sex killer on the loose, and Neddy is in fear for his sister's safety. Pop culture meets Gothic melodrama in this brilliant, hallucinatory novel.

Novel.

Originally published: Sydney : Angus and Robertson, 1963.

Reminiscing 1950's small town NZ with slightly larger than life. But totally believable characters. Odd mix of comedy and very dark crimes. This however did not detract from the storyline and the book was an excellent read.
