Synopsis

May 2021. London.

Campbell Flynn, art historian and celebrity intellectual, is embarking on the ripeness of midlife. Fuelled by an appetite for admiration and the finer things - and for controversy and novelty - he doesn't take people half as seriously as they take themselves. Which will prove the first of his huge mistakes.

The second? Milo Manghasa, his beguiling and provocative student. Milo inhabits a more precarious world, and has experiences and ideas that excite his professor. He also has a plan.

Over the course of an incendiary year, a web of crimes, secrets and scandals will be revealed, and Campbell Flynn may not be able to protect himself from the shattering exposure of his privilege and his connections. But then, he always knew: when his life came tumbling down, it would occur in public.
