The Deluded

By Wolf Augustus

Thriller, Crime & mystery | eBook


The year is 1949. The East End of London is still recovering from the blitz. Fitzgerald O’Sullivan is a young man with romantic notions of living like an impoverished writer. In an attempt to escape his past, he abandons his life of privilege and rents a room in the East End. There he meets Roy Parker, a chirpy Cockney with a working-class charm. Roy asks Fitz to write a story about how he saved the lives of two Jewish ladies during the war. What follows is a far-fetched tale filled with lies and exaggerations. Roy is obviously a fantasist, but he is also an irrepressible charmer and Fitz becomes infatuated with him. But Fitz doesn’t know that there is a kernel of truth in the tale he is telling. When the body of a Jewish woman is fished up off the coast of Kent, the real story slowly begins to unfold. Fitz soon finds himself embroiled in a world of theft, deceit and murder. The Deluded is a noir thriller where nothing and no one is what they at first seems to be. It is a dark tale of love, bitterness and vengeance set in the chaotic aftermath of the Second World War. Inspired by the pulp fiction novels of the 1940's and 50's, the Gay Noir series emulates the dark, thrilling, sensational and taboo breaking stories of the post war era and gives them a homoerotic twist. 'The Deluded' is the first in this series, but others will soon follow.
