A Kind of Life


Ree Lovell plans her escape from her abusive stepfather and rents a room from Alan ‘Pixie’ Dixon, a transvestite prostitute with a heart of gold. Soon Ree meets Gavin, who ran away from an alcoholic father in the spur of a moment and lived rough for a while. He now has his own flat and works in a café across the road from Pixie’s house.

Everything seems perfect until Pixie’s lover, Colin, a high-ranking police officer, is blackmailed by a vengeful career criminal who stumbles upon his nemesis’ weakness by chance.

Colin and Pixie’s plan to thwart their blackmailer fails miserably and sees pregnant Ree on remand in prison, Colin in a coma, and Colin’s wife determined to unmask her husband’s lover, keep his share of the house and spend his police pension…
