Les - The First Scout
Les Paxton, Idiosyncratic and insecure, a 45-year old security guard, working a dead-end job in the regional town of Moolanda. His childhood obsession with recording devices sees him moonlighting as a private investigator, usually taking jobs for his elderly mother's eccentric nursing home friends. During one of his illicit surveillance operations, Les witnesses a crime that puts him at the center of a violent conspiracy, from which there is nowhere to turn - least of all the police, who are possibly implicated.
