summary: Undercover Metropolitan Police officer DC Louis Tomlinson has worked his way up the ranks of a prominent London crime family without raising suspicion, but when he finds himself pitted against a sadistic crime boss with a police background and a favoured employee by the name of Harry Styles, everything starts to unravel. Finding himself in the middle of an escalating war between two bosses whose bad blood runs deep into a violent past, Louis has to be even more careful where he steps in case his big secret catches up to him – and if it does, he knows he won’t survive it.
Not to mention he’s falling for someone he can’t have – whose earnestness and honesty is a bright spot in a dark world – he can’t sleep because his nightmares haunt him and he’s in way over his head, but it’s just a game, always just a game, and if Louis plays his cards right he might just make it out alive.
aggressive reminder that if you (rightly!) call out your faves for being racist, sexist, heterosexist, and/or cissexist but don’t bother saying squat when they’re disgustingly ableist because you think that matters less, then you’re not the good critical fan you think you are you’re a fucking hypocrite and an apologist and I am disappointed in you (⊙︿⊙✿)
