Trigg Harvey has lost his job, his flat, his friends and his trousers. Now he wants his luck back. Trigg's search takes him to Australia's Gold Coast. In amongst the thirty miles of sun, concrete, money and neon lurks his luck, in the possession of one Terry Smith. Now he just has to find him. His search becomes serious when it leads to the head of the Japanese Mafia on the coast. Hampered with delusions and heavy existential baggage, Trigg has to infiltrate the Gold Coast underworld to discover if one Mr Somatsu, aka Tetsuya Suzuki, aka Terry Smith, will help him get his old life back. And not even kidnapping, illegal casinos, murder or golf will dent his resolve in this hilarious story. Trigg's efforts are finally rewarded when he finds himself within feet of a solution. Unfortunately, five of Japan's most powerful men stand in his way. Trigg has to draw on everything he's learned about himself and life, not to mention the help of his new friends, to get him through. What he discovers is that perhaps having his luck taken from him was, in fact, the luckiest thing that could have happened.
