Glitz and glamour, greed and sleaze, fall and redemption. It’s all happening on the Gold Coast.

Glitz and glamour, greed and sleaze, fall and redemption. It’s all happening on the Gold Coast.

Icarus is a penthouse salesman on the Gold Coast. In his early thirties and at the top of his profession, he revels in the trappings of his success: the luxury apartment at Parthenon Place overlooking the endless rolling surf, the red Mustang convertible, the gorgeous beautician girlfriend. His life couldn't be more perfect – or could it?

This is the story of the rise and fall and redemption of a modern-day Icarus, and is the final word on that strangely unsettling and gloriously tacky place we call the Gold Coast.

Matt Condon's reputation as one of our most original and talented writers was set once and for all with the publication of this novel.
