At three in the morning, in a gay club somewhere in London's Bermondsey, Adam Killigrew comes face to face with Nemesis - wreathed in an unknown boy's devastating grin. Maybe it's just a question of smiling back? But life offers more complications for Adam, and for his lodger Theo, the black actor busy reinventing himself as an expensive luxury for mysterious Guy from Bayswater. Others are caught in the web: blue-blooded Daisy, muse and fixer, who needs to stay in control; Serena, her sister, and country wife to the perfect Jeremy; Frankie, the dancing divo with whom Adam falls in love; and sibylline Alice, the third sister, who knows all their secrets and one or two more.
This is a comedy of jaded city lives, of sex and secrets, of the urge to end the game. To dodge the Millenium and flee to the country. But can this smiling crew make their escape?
