Daniel Trooks, is a twenty-nine-year old employee of trendy popular entrepreneur Sir Miles Value. Self-centred, lazy, manipulative, good-for-nothing husband and a father of two, he one day happened to be in the right place and the wrong time... By not doing the honest thing, he ends up with a 'windfall' (according to him, loot to everyone else) of roughly half a million pounds in one-pound coins. For Daniel the most pressing issue then becomes: where does one stash away half a million pounds worth of pound coins? Why among the royalty, rich and famous on Sir Mile's Value's tropical paradise island of course.
In this magnificent satire on 'green' living where garlic grows on trees and grapes are picked from plastic vines, lies, sex and skuldugery are common place.
On Sir Miles Value's tropical paradise island anything can happen... and everything does!
