Ben Elton’s earth-shattering début novel!
Stark is a secret consortium with more money than God, and the social conscience of a dog on a croquet lawn. What’s more, it knows the Earth is dying.
Deep in Western Australia where the Aboriginals used to milk the trees, a planet-sized plot is taking shape. Some green freaks pick up the scent: a pommie poseur; a brain-fried Vietnam vet; Aboriginals who have lost their land… not much against a conspiracy that controls society. But EcoAction isn’t in society: it just lives in the same place, along with the cockroaches.
If you’re facing the richest and most disgusting scheme in history, you have to do more than stick up two fingers and say ‘peace’.
