In 1897 at West Riding Assizes, Police Constable John Higgins gave evidence in the trial of twelve ordinary men for indecency at a private party. Treated worse than murderers they felt the full weight of the law.
Higgins had gained their trust and obtained an invite to the party. Was he really undercover or was it just a cover-up? This is a carefully researched tale of love, temptation and betrayal in Victorian England, told from the points of view of John Higgins, his wife Annie, and of his close friend Bill Kilroy, who spent the rest of his life in a lunatic asylum. It is gritty, but also lyrical and moving. A working class <em>Imitation Game</em>.
