Summary: In an Alternate Universe Great Britain, Parliament enacted laws promoting bond slavery to decrease overcrowding in prison and increase the menial work force. Constable Doyle is crusading against corruption in the London Met when he is framed, and sent to prison. George Cowley wants to roust those supporting the inhumane laws, and pays Doyle’s bond to get in with the unsavoury mobsters. Pairing Bodie and Doyle, he uses them to dig deeply into the rot. What will this do to their burgeoning attraction?
Notes: This story tied me in knots—I started it in late 2016 for the 2017 Big Bang, but then had to withdraw because of medical issues. When I started writing again in January of 2018, I had no idea where I’d meant to go with the story and my focus on what I wanted to write had changed. Thank goodness for my editors, LilyK, Wightfaerie, Kaye Austen Michaels, and Macklingirl for finding all the typos and misspelled words. You’ve helped make this a much better story. Thanks to everyone who reads this! Special thanks to the CI5 bag of Tricks com for continuing this great Big Bang tradition.
