Dylan’s life is regulated and precise, and as a gay man in the England of the 1960s it’s also necessarily secretive; the law regarding homosexuality may have changed, but unfortunately society’s attitudes are slow to catch up. Meeting Max – younger and less inhibited – is a shock to Dylan’s system; suddenly his world, which has been black and…
But Floss is determined to turn CTB’s luck around and things are finally starting to look up … An old insider trading job, lost a year ago, suddenly resurfaces. And like Dublin buses, good gigs come in twos and a second more challenging job falls in her lap. A young Russian girl approaches with a desperate plea to find her best friend Anna, missing, feared kidnapped or worse in Dublin.
Fired up and determined not to fail, Floss and loyal sidekick Penny Firth soon uncover a sinister human trafficking ring at the heart of the city’s underbelly. More ruthless and vicious than any white-collar weasel they’ve faced, the girls reluctantly bring in the reinforcements … From stage left, the mysterious Tash, Lithuania’s answer to Lara Croft. And stage right? Seasoned and sizzling Milo McCarthy, ex-special branch, turned Private Eye.
Floss needs a mind-melting love triangle like she needs a full bodied perm, but that’s exactly what she’s got. Will she pick Tash and dabble in ‘the dark side’? Or will she fall for Milo’s bad-boy charm? But most important of all, will she find Anna before it’s too late?
