July 1945. War in Europe is over, but Japan is still holding out. 12-year-old Bill Wilson reluctantly returns to grimy, war-damaged London to face severe austerity and worse. His emotions are confused: he’s left his loving evacuation family; he’s thrilled to have his Uncle Ted back safe from the war, yet worried by Ted’s post-combat behaviour; now manipulative cousin Kenneth is to share Bill’s home, flaunting his popularity with adults as well as his artistic talent. Bill’s well-meaning match-making of his widowed aunt with a GI has resulted in a blossoming romance, and Kenneth is fuming. The boys’ long-standing rivalry intensifies further with adolescence and Kenneth’s continued and devious intrusion into Bill’s home life. Everything Bill has, Kenneth grasps… until one reach too far into Bill’s psychological territory. An emotional explosion is inevitable. The fearful climax had dreadful consequences for everyone around them. The fall-out is traumatic and life-changing. Can Bill find an honourable resolution, or will Kenneth always be a threat?
