The Harlequin triangle
The Harlequin triangle - a quiet and colourful little area of London beloved by its quirky array of residents. Behind the doors of the houses, flats and shops, the mish-mash of human dramas unfold; troublesome teens, blossoming romances, the usual clash of personalties and, as with most places, rumours shadow the most mysterious.
When a body is found in the alley to the communal gardens, the residents must pull together in order to carry on their lives with courage and good humour, lest the lurking suspicion - that one of their own carried out the evil deed - engulfs them.
New Year's Eve and residents around the Harlequin triangle share celebrations in their communal garden. The body in the alley, found only months before with neither killer nor cause yet identified, has many of the neighbours unsettled. Further concerns grow when some friends fail to show and, as the bells ring out at midnight, dramatic events play out just across town.
An unwanted pregnancy, an unhappy prognosis, an unresolved past and the joys and heartaches of love - the 'Harly' is full of secrets as the old year turns to new and those living there go forward to colour in more of their lives.
Life can be complicated but most try to keep within the boundaries society has put in place. On the whole, the residents living around the Harlequin Triangle were a decent, law-abiding lot but, for some, the boundary lines had become a little blurred and the only answer was to take the law into their own hands. The perpetrator of a local murder had still to be apprehended and concern regarding safety was escalating - and yet, love, laughter and romance still abounded.
The colourful little corner of London had become even more precious and the residents of the 'Harly' were ready to defend it against any who tried to darken its brightness.
'The Harlequin Triangle' is the newest output from the Print Works. A triology opening with 'Colouring In'; a tale of eclectic characters and their unfolding dramas set in a vivid urban habitat, where each bright door and window belies darker truths than any would care to admit. The sequel, 'More Colouring In', reveals another year in the lives of those at the Harlequin triangle with each turn of the page shedding more light and shade on the human condition. The trilogy ends with 'Over The Lines', the as yet unpublished conclusion where our assorted anti-heros and their friendships are tested once more.
