Luck runs out for two bumbling con men when they arrive in a sleepy New Zealand country town in 1949. Their horse-racing scam is uncovered. But at the same time, there's arson at the local billiard saloon. And the Tainuia Kid is watching it all.

Came a Hot Friday is a rollicking comic adventure set in 1949 against a background of horse racing, gambling and fast cars.

Came A Hot Friday is based on the novel of the same name by Ronald Hugh Morrieson, described by Maurice Shadbolt as "by far the funniest book ever written by a New Zealander."
