“It tells of a young factory hand, John West, who rose from a poverty-stricken up-bringing in a Melbourne suburb to become Australia’s biggest gambler and powerful political manipulator.  It is set against the background of an Australia struggling out of the 1890s depression through 60 years of Australian history.  West’s world was one of gambling, sport, the underworld and Tammany Hall politics.  Well-known politicians and public men prominent in Australia are thinly disguised in the story.”
