The Fallen Boys were at their zenith when Zac’s luck ran out. How does the shock of being dumped from dazzling and conspicuous success into relative obscurity affect his fellow band members Karl, Ritchie and Leon? Accustomed to adulation, wall-to-wall glamour and all the illusions of fame, the Boys find themselves in strange territory. No longer courted, with zero prospect of resurrecting the group, they find themselves facing harsh realities.
Karl is driven to appear on chat shows and accept pantomime roles: all the P.R. exercises he previously spurned. Reluctantly, he participates in a TV reality series soon after he meets Lizzie Keating, daughter of an IRA bomber. As the challenges to their relationship surface: Karl’s father, ex-Army and implacable in his hatred for the Irish; Karl’s wandering eye and Lizzie’s refusal to play second fiddle to anyone, Karl learns what is really valuable.
