Book Title: 
Author Name: 

I've been doing some very determined juggling recently as this is a book I've been very keen to read - particularly as the 2nd in the series is now also out. Wonderful sense of place.

From the Blurb:

Steve West, mining engineer and ex-footy star, just wants a dirty weekend in town, but he can't stop people telling him their secrets. When crusading Kara incites a breakout in the desert, Westie finds himself her reluctant accomplice. Soon he's got a runaway asylum seeker in tow, and all the world, it seems, on his tail.

Hidden in the outback, somewhere near Ecstasy Lake, is a massive gold deposit worth billions of dollars.

Steve West, mining engineer and ex-AFL footballer, is the third person to know about it. The second is his good mate Tasso - loud, brilliant, filthy rich and just possibly mad. The first has just been brutally murdered.

A goldmine like this is just the thing to turn a man's fortunes around. It might even change the fortunes of the state.
