As a young man, Ray Doyle came to London with barely the train fare in his pocket. He lived in Brixton, among abandoned flats and a sexually and racially diverse population. He chose family and worked for social change … and slept with men, women, and genderfluid people. Then he joined the Met and later, CI5. He'd hoped his partner Bodie would never have to know.
Now CI-5 has an operation in the Brixton squats, and Ray must tell Bodie enough about his past there to make sure they can work safely and complete their assignment. They must work together and come to terms with their new knowledge and both their sexualities, as well as the unforeseen complications of their assignment.
Note: Thanks to jat_sapphire for a story which showed me some part of London's history I've never heard about.
