AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'From award-winning writer Fiona Capp comes a novel about blackmail, risk, corruption and consequences - think Raymond Chandler meets The Great Gatsby - set in the millionaire's playground of Portsea. This is modern Melbourne literary noir at its finest.

'Having lost all his family's money in ill-advised investments during the GFC, Ned is reduced to squatting in a boatshed in wealthy Portsea. He is avoiding the world, particularly his sister, Angela, who after an accident, is now a paraplegic, confined to a wheelchair, and completely dependent on both her carer, Mai, and Ned - not to mention the income from their family investments. But one day, Ned overhears a conversation between a millionaire property developer and a politician, and realizes that this might be his opportunity to restore their fortunes ... if he has the nerve.

'This is a nail-biting and compelling story of risk, blackmail and the corrosive nature of guilt - and how we all have to live with the consequences of our actions.'
