Set in the boardrooms, yachts, and waterfront mansions of Australia's most decadent city, this boisterous thriller investigates corruption and excess in the corporate world. Jack Beaumont, architect turned property developer, is as surprised as the next person when he is approached by insurance tycoon Mac Biddulph to become the new CEO of HOA, the largest home-insurer in Australia. Seduced by power, Jack soon finds that beneath the glamorous facade of the business elite lies a convoluted network of corruption. Out of his depth and pursued by piranhas in a fish tank full of money, Jack must unravel the elusive threads or become ensnared himself. A darkly comic, suspense-filled tale of intrigue, this thriller poses moral dilemmas relevant to corporate sharks of today's business world--and to those left in their wake.
