In the intense heat of Australia’s Gold Coast, rival quarrying families battle one another for supremacy in an industry where very few make it. Alex Kirkpatrick loves crushing rock. Like his father, he’s addicted to the dust, the noise, getting amongst it. Alex’s father does not suffer fools gladly and he’s as hard on himself as he is on others. But there’s more to him than his abrupt Aussie manner would suggest. The sharks in the ocean might be safer than the sharks circling back on land.
