GOLD! The Kincaid Saga

All Rights Reserved ©


Malcolm Kincaid is a self-made man. He is also a ruthless businessman and opportunist. He knows what it takes to build and maintain a business empire, but how far will he be prepared to go to achieve his goals — and what will he sacrifice along the way? Rachel is Malcolm's one-time fiancé; his business partner, and father of his child. She finds herself forced to work with the man she has grown to despise. She also has to guide her son, Lachlan, as he navigates life, all the while trying to mitigate Malcolm's growing influence on him. This task becomes increasingly difficult when Lachlan is appointed manager of a new mine. For over 30 years Malcolm uses and abuses friends and family alike, in his pursuit of wealth and power. When he allows the pollution of an Aboriginal settlement’s water supply, however, he faces justice of a kind he could never imagine. GOLD! is a tale of greed, betrayal, family conflict, rape, and murder. It is also, however, a story of love and loyalty — and of how one man’s pride and prejudice can lead to terrible retribution.

(For those who are interested)

This story takes place in Western Australia over an approximately 30-year timeframe, starting in 1975. Notwithstanding the disclaimer above, many of the locations and events mentioned are based on fact. Indeed, even some individuals mentioned in passing existed then, and possibly still do today. The story, as written, is fictional.

Perth, the capital of Western Australia, is located in the south-west of the state. Kalgoorlie, where much of the action takes place, is around 400 kilometres north-east of Perth. The Nullagine region and Port Hedland are approximately 1350 kilometres to the north.

Gold mining has been a major part of the history and economy of Western Australia since white settlement. Over the years, many fortunes have been won and lost, and there have been numerous documented reports of clashes between the new settlers and the indigenous land-dwellers. Most did not bode well for the native inhabitants.

Thank you for choosing to read this book. Digest and enjoy.
