Flood Country

Robert Maddison

Water theft, corruption, intrigue... at the height of a ten year drought in Australia's outback

Water theft, corruption, intrigue… at the height of a ten-year drought in Australia’s outback.

Jack Miller, former Sydney Morning Herald journalist, follows his instincts to rural Dawson to do a follow-up piece on a headline that read 'Angry farmer accuses bureaucrat of corruption'.

Little did he know what he was about to unleash as he set about helping the feisty old cattle farmer to expose corruption in the water industry—blatant water theft at the height of a ten-year drought crippling the Australian farming landscape.

As Jack and his friends slowly unravel the web of deceit and corruption, which extends through the bureaucracy and into the corridors of political power and big business, they are confronted by an increasingly desperate enemy willing to do anything to stay above the law.
