WATER PROMISES TO BE TO THE 21st CENTURY WHAT OIL WAS TO THE TWENTIETH...
LIQUID GOLD is a high-octane thriller featuring Lachlan Fox.
Lachlan Fox has made a career out of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. As a shore assault specialist in an Australian Navy Clearance Diver Team, he often came up against bad guys and even worse odds. Now working as an investigative journalist for an independent news organisation he doesn t back away from uncovering the big stories...global conspiracies, rogue secret agents, terrorist cells...
With his best friend Alister Gammaldi, Fox is caught up in the corrupt world of international politics and arms races and, it seems, as the earth feels the impact of global warming, that the commodity everyone is after is water. Lachlan discovers some people will do anything to control it. When he exposes their secrets he finds himself back in the front line and facing his strongest enemy yet.

James was born on the 21st of May, 1979, in Melbourne, Australia. He grew up in Parkville, going to sleep to the sound of lions calling in the night at the Melbourne Zoo. His creative spirit was nurtured from a young age, and he credits his overactive imagination to being exposed to authors such as Roald Dahl and Paul Jennings, as well as such works as The Hobbit, Treasure Island, The Jungle Book, Tales of the Punjab, Siddhartha, and The Little Prince. He holds an MA and PhD in literature. He is the author of 25 novels.
After high school James went to RMIT to study Architecture, and worked for two years as a student architect on the Federation Square design team. He then attended the University of Melbourne to study Creative Writing, culminating in an MA (Writing), and PhD (Young Adult Literature) at Swinburne University of Technology. It was during his masters degree and while working at The Age newspaper James developed the idea that would become his first published book – Literati - and would soon lead to seeing his novels in print.
Since 2006 he has been a full-time novelist, selling over a million books world-wide.
