Summary: Cowley and his political masters send Bodie and Doyle to investigate a neo-Nazi group based in Eastbourne. The main focus is a right wing newspaper and the fears include links with foreign groups, smuggling as a funding method and encouragement of general thuggish behaviour towards minorities. Doyle is undercover as a local government worker contacting right wing sympathisers. Bodie is also undercover as his landlord and 'handler'. There are violent incidents in local parks and on the beach. A suicide from the cliffs at Beachy Head may not be what it seems. Will Doyle's cover be blown? Can Doyle's fellow lodger be trusted? Will danger make the partners admit their feelings for each other?
Notes: Many thanks to margaret_r for the superb beta and hand-holding. Many thanks too, to my wonderful artist, minori_k whose pictures enhance the story so well.
Remember that if you download from AO3 for your e-reader you won’t get the pics so make sure you look at them before and after! And let the artist know how great they are!
The inspiration for the story came from an article in an anti-fascist publication (which I read and can no longer find) which detailed government and security service concerns about a neo-Nazi magazine printed and distributed on the south coast around the time of the original Pros series. I thought it was likely that our lads would have been involved in the investigation!
