A story of love, corruption, betrayal, revenge and redemption in the Australian minerals resources sector awaits readers in the pages of J.K. Kulski’s novel. “China Heist” (published by Xlibris AU) is part thriller, part political intrigue, a violent existential romp portraying the exploitation of Australia’s natural resources in an environment of hidden takeovers and failed government policies.
“China Heist” is a crime novel set in the lucky country, Australia, during the height of its multi-billion dollar mining boom. Robert Lee is a jaded detective in the Fraud Squad sent on an undercover assignment to entrap a Chinese businesswoman and her daughter suspected of fraudulently obtaining lucrative mining licenses. The sting goes terribly wrong when the businesswoman is killed in a bomb attack. Lee and the daughter survive only to become the targets of corrupt police, politicians and businessmen.
Now on the run in Perth, Macau, Hong Kong and across the gold fields of the Western Australian outback, and with the body count increasing, Lee must protect the woman, find the murderers, expose the corruption, and seek to clear his name in this action-packed tale of international conflict and greed, financial terrorism and chilling murder in the high-stakes world of mineral resources exploitation.
