1878, Australia's Palmer River Goldfields

There's unbelievable wealth for the picking up and greed for more

The Chinese tongs want their share but are denied access to reef gold

George Colley, tough bushman, strikes up an unlikely alliance with Ma Fu, a young Eurasian prostitute and leads her to a fabulous new reef

Bound by clan loyalty she reveals the secret to the powerful tong and pays the price

A hundred and fifteen years later as the Chinese are emerging as a super power to be wooed Ophelia Lu, daughter of a wealthy Hong Kong family, returns to find and claim the reef

Spanning the century is archeologist Daisy Maycock; she knows the secret and has her own reasons not to tell
