When Gabriella moves in next door to a 14-year-old Sam with her parents and her ageing grandfather - a man who carries the secrets of their Mediterranean island inside his slowly darkening mind - Sam knows his life will never be the same.
Set in Brisbane's Sicilian community over three decades, from 1975 to 1995, 'Firehead' is an eerie story of generations and love, of police corruption and a city's changing terrain, and of searching for that one place in the world you can finally say is home. This is sensuous compelling storytelling with an aching mystery at its heart.
