PCQ Inc. is a giant multinational chemical and pharmaceutical company whose products are in demand globally by industry, agriculture and the medical profession.
Unfortunately, toxic and nuclear waste is a byproduct in its 17 huge factories around the world.
The CEO of PCQ is Mr. Linden Quartermain—LQ to his staff and friends. He is a revoltingly large, fat and ruthless man, intent on acquiring more wealth and power. He commands with fear and intimidation that his unscrupulous executives obtain permission to dump toxic waste in the far west of Australia’s Northern Territory, irrespective of whose integrity or even longevity is lost in the process.
Dan Forsyth, Federal Attorney General and Bob Greaves, Minister of the Environment, are untouchables, but LQ believes every man has a price.
A cargo ship with seven containers of lethal nuclear waste is heading for Darwin.
The two sides meet head on; each determined to achieve its goal, no matter the cost.
