Plot summary

Hector Kipling is an artist. He has his health, loving parents, a beautiful girlfriend, good mates, and talent in abundance (or at least, more abundance than most, and certainly more than his friend Kirk, if not quite as much as their other friend, Lenny - although, actually, Hector would argue that while Lenny's received more recognition for his art, most of that recognition is misplaced). What more could he ask for (besides the same level of recognition that Lenny gets, that is)? But once Hector's life starts to unravel, it doesn't take long at all for it to fall completely and irreparably apart. In fact, as Hector discovers, it's amazing just how quickly a life can disintegrate. From settees to stalkers, con-men to corpses, S&M to the Tate Modern.
