The author invites you into the private lives of the residents of a quiet urban street in England over the course of a single day. You witness the hopes, fears, and unspoken despairs of a diverse community. The tranquility of the street is shattered at day's end when a terrible accident occurs.

On a cold, quiet day between Christmas and New Year, a man's body is found in an abandoned apartment. His friends look on from the shadows, a chorus keeping vigil as the hours pass, paying homage as their friend's body is taken away, examined, investigated, and cremated. All of their stories are laid out piece by broken piece through a series of fractured narratives--of lives fallen through the cracks, hopes flaring and dying, love over-whelmed by stronger need, and the havoc wrought by drugs, distress, and the disregard of the wider world. These invisible people live in a parallel reality, out of reach of basic creature comforts like food and shelter. In their sudden deaths, it becomes clear that they are treated with more respect than they ever were in their short lives

An old couple make their way up to the nearby bus stop. But then a terrible event shatters the quiet of the early summer evening. That this remarkable and horrific event is only poignant to those who saw it, not even meriting a mention on the local news, means tha those who witness it will be altered forever.--
