I really enjoyed this book by W.R.Widerberg. The story is bold and extremely well crafted with fascinating insights into big business and the mechanics of takeovers and business building in Australia.David Preston is chosen to build up a flagging brewery and succeeds beyond his and the Boards expectations. However, therein lies the problem, for David has uncovered the Chairman, Lionel Calvert, dirty little secrets. David and his new love, Julia, embark on a bold plan to wrest control of the Monarch Brewery from the Board. This leads to a serious load of trouble for David.
The conclusion is exciting and unexpected. This is a fine Australian mystery and I look forward to reading more by W.R.Widerber
