Storyline

Alex is found dead in an apparent sex game gone wrong, and Danny is implicated. After he goes to the press to put forward his claim that Alex was murdered, he receives an invitation to go and stay with the parents Alex had told him were dead, finding the detached father Charles dominated by his icy wife Frances, a clearly unloving mother. On return to London he is approached by a mysterious American and seeks refuge with Scottie, who admits that he is a former spy himself. Written by don @ minifie-1

Quotes

[Alex was found dead in his attic, an attic well stocked in S&M equipment]
Danny: He told me his name was Alex.
Journalist: People lie, Danny, and they lie well.
Danny: Guys who own rooms like that attic, when it comes to sex, they know what they want and how they want it. The sex is professional - and he didn't know what he enjoyed. He never found out.
