Sports commentator Dennis Cometti finds mystery, murder and a gift for the gab as he follows his family tree back to Australia's settlement. From Meekatharra in Western Australian to northern Italy, Dennis discovers not only the hardship his grandfather faced in the mines, but a rich Italian heritage, as well as solving a mystery surrounding the absence of his grandmother from family photographs, and the bitterness his father felt towards her. But it is on Dennis' maternal side that the story proves a real revelation, as he sets out to trace the feistiness common to women in his family. The journey is full of surprises-adultery, murder, tragedy and mayhem-and more than one shady character, much of it centred on the enigmatic Emma Hines, Dennis' great great grandmother, and her forebears. It is a journey that leaves him with a lifetime of anecdotes and an extended family he never imagined possible.
