Abstract/Summary Unbeknown to ninety-four-year-old Best Douglas, his Doctor is trying to kill him under a recently passed euthanasia law. At age eight, Best witnessed his mother drown off the rock shelves of Thurrough Beach. Soon after he experienced strange visions. Were they the result of a wounded boy's mind, or divine intercessions designed to help him and ultimately humanity? Against a backdrop of rich Australian heritage, the novel strips bare the pivotal events of Best's life: his obscure aboriginal and convict ancestry; the curious Hole of Thurrough Beach; the tragic losses of loved ones; his budding friendship with Daniel .."Oak Legs"..Finbar .. the war veteran; his unique relationship with Orion, the Nursing Home's paper boy; and Doctor Fiona Gerard, the lone voice against his death. Can they all combine to protect Best from sinister forces and give meaning to his life in old age?
