1957, London.  Derek is a skilled photographer, very down on his luck.  A mysterious envelope drops through the letter box of his cold bedsit – a stranger asking him to take secret pictures of an elegant young woman as she walks in Holland Park… The reward is handsome.

But the irresistible assignment takes a sudden, shocking turn.  Entangled, and compelled to understand, Derek is led to a seedy Soho night-life populated by dubious characters. What do the Irish comedian, Russian conjuror, and American saxophone player have to do with the shooting?  Derek finds his whole outlook on life is challenged by what he discovers.

Douglas Post’s wonderfully intelligent thrillers do more than keep you on the edge of your seat – they examine the turbulent human heart.

Running Time: 2 hours approx. with interval.
