Summary
It's 2016. Lance Alcocke, sole heir to an iron ore fortune, fortyish bachelor, has just lost control of his life's work. His newly opened mine, Madeleine's Monster, named after his pioneering, ironfisted grandmother, was supposed to be a workers' paradise in the Pilbara. But the Monster can't cover its costs and Lance's Korean financiers are trying to steal his company out from under him. They've appointed administrators to APC Minerals, and Lance's 1200 workers have lost their jobs. Among those newly unemployed when the Monster goes under is young engineer Will Fulbright. Will's downhill slide has been gathering pace for some time. His formerly lovedup girlfriend, Justine Jamison, director of the refugee advocacy group Free All Refugee Children! (FARC!) and lefty girl about town, doesn't seem to like him much anymore. Will has no income, not many prospects, a slightly out of control drug problem, and finds himself back on his mother's couch in Fairfield. Meanwhile, Will's old employer, Lance Alcocke, and Will's girlfriend Justine are on a personal collision course of their own
