Risking discreet one night stands within an extended circle of male London friends, Triggers is troubled to find that his brusque approach to liaisons may no longer be enough to keep the emotions of a proper relationship at bay.
The unexpected arrival of a young boy on his doorstep, vulnerable and in need of medical attention, brings out a deep compassion in Triggers not felt since he took Alan Farmer under his wing - a complete contrast to his usual lustful interest in young men.

And so now, at the age of thirty-one, a good ten years older than most of the debutantes to the world he had entered, Nigel was exploring what London had to offer and, thus far, had been really only an observer, and of course co-conspirator in the endless labyrinthine intrigues of Bim’s romantic affairs.
New Year's Eve 1938. A small, discreet gathering in London.
Alan sinks down onto his bed, raises his hip flask to his lips and takes a long swig - it burns in his throat like the start of tears.
Outside the window, the sun is setting beyond the airfield. The sky is red, and in the light the ground is red, and all the buildings and the few men moving about on the ground. Blood red.
