Hamilton Wrightson, millionaire mine-owner and pastoralist, controls twenty-three million acres of North West Western Australia but saboteurs are destroying his holdings. Wrightson hires George Galbraith, ex-diplomatic intelligence man and expert on subversion and terrorism. Galgraith and Wrightson's assistant - 'one of the most strikingly beautiful women he has ever seen - and the most unobtainable' - find the answers.
