Along with his best friends, Lawrence and Maggie, he looks forward to a long and successful run in the West End of London, When he meets, and is instantly attracted to Ian Bannister, a handsome police detective, Peter feels as though everything in his life is suddenly coming up roses. Ian is investigating an alleged blackmail threat against Kenny, and when the blackmailer is murdered, the drag star becomes the prime suspect. Despite Kenny's jealous and vicious attempts to keep Peter and Ian apart, Peter feels obliged to help clear Kenny's name, even if it means putting his own life in danger.
