Why did homosexuality become a crime, so suddenly and unexpectedly, in 1885 in the UK? This book finds out the truth, and goes back to the scandal that started it all - in Dublin the previous summer, a by-product of the tortured politics of Ireland at the time - and finds that it led to an unprecedented moment of fear in England, and London in particular, ten years later. It also finds a very personal link with the author's family.
