It is the 5th October of 1962 - the day the Beatles release 'Love Me Do' and the official start of the Swinging Sixties -but homosexuality in England is still illegal - men are still hunted down by the police, they are beaten and they are murdered. Jonathan Willis-James-James is homosexual and he is murdered, kicked to death in a grimy City street by a gang of thugs. His murder is investigated by Detective Inspector Robert Tennell, whose 39th Birthday the 5th October 1962 is - he is also the secret lover of Johnathan. Heartbroken and devastated at the loss of his longtime lover, Robert sets out to discover who was responsible for Jonathan's death - but he has to be very careful - he is homosexual - it is against the law and he is a policeman - someone whose duty it is to uphold the law. With homosexuals dying all around him, Robert, surviving by the skin of his teeth in a fog of loss and loneliness, keeping his secrets close, confiding in friends who betray him, leads his officers in the hunt for Jonathan's killer or killers. This is a novel about prejudice and hate; hate, literally, for fellow men; a time when being queer meant arrest or beatings or death. People like Robert Tennell were the shining lights of the age. Another fine novel from the imagination of Sally Dillon Snape
