Dust to Dust is an action-packed adventure that rages across Western Australia's mineral-rich Kimberley and Pilbara. An underground gold mine in the remote east Kimberley is flooded just eight days after striking the richest gold seam the mine has seen in two generations. With mounting debts, the mine closes and is forced into administration. Stirling Hooper's quest to resurrect the abandoned mine is spurned by mining companies and investors alike. Desperate, and with nowhere else to turn, he ends up in a fragile partnership with nefarious local bon vivant, Karl Deperne. With work to salvage the mine barely underway, Deperne forces Hooper and his fellow shareholders into hijacking a charter flight carrying nearly half a tonne of gold from Matalinka. The gold heist is only the beginning of Hooper's troubles as Deperne crosses and double crosses his partner, dragging him into a web of murder, kidnapping, rape and corruption.
Lew Deegan was born in the tiny West Australian goldfields town of Southern Cross. He discovered his penchant for writing while studying literature and journalism at Curtin University. Today he lives between Cooya Beach in Queensland and Balmoral Beach in Sydney, and like many Australian novelists and artists, is inspired by the Antipodean landscape, its monotony and grandeur and vast emptiness.
