"It was the year I broke a bone in my leg, the year I got my first kiss and the year Jesus got himself shot.' One dead Japanese pearl diver is starting to smell. A big, slow Filipino crewman is making trouble in Sheba Lane. And a beautiful girl called Amy O'Rourke has stirred his dreams. And there is Sam, who gets mixed up with all of them and maybe shouldn't have. Sam is a skinny layabout, working at the Sun Picture Stadium for his dad, and dreaming of being a legend while he checks the seats for scorpions and the back of the screen for other kids making out. All he wants is to be a hero and get the girl. 'It was a strange place, Broome; we weren't like any other Australian town. It was as if a giant hand had reached down from the sky and scooped up a bit of Asia and slapped it right down in the middle of the Australian outback, a Chinese squat surrounded by red dirt and mangroves.? It was a strange place; there were Japanese divers and Filipino crew and Chinese storekeepers and pearlers in white suits playing croquet on their lawns while men died every day hunting for pearl in the shimmering blue waters of Roebuck Bay. And there was Sam. Dreaming of adventure in the back of the picture stadium until one day adventure comes and finds him. The year is 1926, the place is Japtown, and the heat is on.
