Boy in Blue

First Edition

Steve Kay (Publisher)

A novel by Steph Henley, unlike any other on the market. It has been compared to those of Sarah Waters – except this is an account of illicit male love in the 1890s.

Boy in Blue is based on the true story of a Victorian “pretty policeman,” PC John Higgins, whose evidence convicted twelve ordinary men for what was a victimless crime. Treated worse than murderers they felt the full weight of the law. Higgins had gained their trust and obtained an invite to a party. But was he really undercover or was it just a cover-up? This is a carefully researched tale of love, temptation and betrayal in Victorian England, told from the points of view of Higgins, his wife Annie, and of his close friend Bill Kilroy, who spent the rest of his life in a lunatic asylum. It is gritty, but also lyrical and moving.
