Product description

Product Description

First in a series of satirical hilarious ‘what ifs’ alternate histories - short 90 page novalettes. What if Lang Hancock met Don McLeod during WWII and the Japanese air raid of Port Headland? The succession of the Pilbara from Australia at the time of the Aboriginal stockman’s strike in the late 1940s results. Native aboriginal wars, and the development of the iron ore mines lead to a civil war and the Pilbara splits into a BHP east and a Rio Tinto west.

Then in 2003 in an alternate history, a new republican fascism sweeps Australia led by ex-Victorian Premier Rupert Hamer, who ends up in the Pilbara plotting coup d’états, the ousting of the ailing Howard and sealing of secret deals with Rosi Hancock.

ASIS agents trying to thwart a republican takeover of Australia, meet the likes of Dirty Dave, and the itinerant backpacker anti-hero Trav Tucker - a mental disability pensioner lost in Australia’s Outback trying to find a meaning to life. The unlikely band take on the Big Australian corporates in a border dash with secret documents. Tom Price, Karijini’s Miracle Mile, McLeod’s indigenous terrorists, Port Headland’s ore processing plants and Newman’s mine are the backdrop for an action adventure like Raiders of the Lost Ark mixed with ABCs The Chaser and Ben Elton’s Stark.

The riveting political intrigue continues to the last page with Naomi Robinson rescuing the agents in a media circus on Mt Whaleback as the biggest ore train in history loads up.
