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. All Steve and Tasso need do is play their cards right, which means keeping their discovery a secret, staying out of gang wars, and trying not to get killed. Easier said than done.
