Abstract:

1970: Fourteen-year-old Tony becomes seduced by Britain's neo-Nazi movement, sucked into a world of brutal racist violence and bizarre ritual. It's an environment in which he must hide his sexuality, in which every encounter is potentially deadly. 2003: James is a young writer, living with his boyfriend. In search of a subject, he begins looking into the Far Right in Britain and its secret gay membership. He becomes particularly fascinated by Nicky Crane, one of the leaders of the neo-Nazi movement who came out in 1992 before dying a year later of AIDS. The two narrative threads of this extraordinarily assured and ambitious first novel follow Tony through the seventies, eighties, and nineties, as the nationalist movement splinters and weakens; and James through a year in which he becomes dangerously immersed in his research. After risky flirtations with individuals on far right websites, he starts receiving threatening phone calls--the first in a series of unexpected events that ultimately cause the lives of these two very different men to unforgettably intersect.
