Publisher Description

From the bestselling author of Maralinga.

Floodtide is a brilliant observation of turbulent times in the mighty 'Iron Ore State' - Western Australia. The novel traces the fortunes of four men and four families over four memorable decades: The prosperous post-war 1950s when childhood is idyllic and carefree in the small, peaceful city of Perth... The turbulent '60s when youth is caught up in the conflict of the Vietnam War and free love reigns... The avaricious '70s when Western Australia's mineral boom sees the rise of a new young breed of aggressive entrepreneurs... The corrupt '80s and the birth of 'WA Inc', when the alliance of greedy politicians and powerful businessmen brings the state to its knees, even threatening the downfall of the federal government. But, as the '90s ushers in a new age when innocence is lost, all four are caught up in the irreversible tides of change, and actions must be answered for.
