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, Malcolm’s one-time fiancé; his business partner, and the mother of his child, finds herself forced to work with the man she has grown to despise.
Unaware of his true parentage, their son, Lachlan—after first studying for a law degree—advances through the ranks as their company grows into a mammoth corporation, while Rachel does her best to mitigate Malcolm’s increasing influence on him. This task becomes more difficult when Malcolm appoints Lachlan as manager of a new mine.
Lachlan soon has his own set of challenges: A fractious and sometimes domineering wife with a drug dependency, a child of his own, and a conscience that often leads him into direct conflict with his Machiavellian ‘uncle’.
Over the years, Malcolm Kincaid uses, abuses, and dominates associates and family alike, crushing all opposition 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.
Praise for Gold!
“Honestly, I couldn’t put the book down until I completed it. A most worthy read for anyone interested in a great story. Well done Thomas.”-– ★Pat Ritter, Published Author of 27 Books, 1988–present day.
“GOLD! by Thomas Greenbank has all the ingredients of a page turner. It has a straightforward plot, characters that are tied to the main plot and help further it rather than creating their own sub plots, a well-defined villain whose villainy runs like a spine through the whole story, setting the tone for other characters and events. ..took me back to Sidney Sheldon and Jeffery Archer, warts and all.” — reedsy.com
This is a strong start to a series, and I liked how it was set in Australia. I had no idea there were still people who went searching for gold, I thought that was a long past item.
It is not like the Old West stories, but it is still fun. This is the start to following what will happen to the Kincaid family, and it is sure to become more gripping as time goes on. I think this book will appeal to those who enjoy adventure stories and like different settings.
This was a great read and I am keen to see more from this author about the Kincaid family soon.
Just pick this book up ASAP and get lost in the adventure, you will not regret it.
