Summary

"'Shall we allow criminals to roam the streets at will because we're afraid to take the chance of harming an innocent prisoner?'" 
A bloody knife from a crime scene becomes a mystery to be solved and a foreshadow of trouble to come. 
The ties forged between the noble-minded Eternal Dungeon and an abusive foreign dungeon have set off an unpredictable chain of horrific events, in which the love between two of the Eternal Dungeon's Seekers (torturers) will be tested to the straining point. Caught in the middle of the struggle are Barrett Boyd and Seward Sobel, loyal guards who will find themselves questioning their most fundamental beliefs about the royal prison's ideals. 
Barrett must help his Seeker determine whether their mild-mannered prisoner is an attempted murderer. His friend Seward has pledged to guard his own Seeker against an assassin . . . or should Seward be protecting the dungeon inhabitants against his Seeker? But when the guards' two Seekers fall into a lovers' quarrel, that is when the real danger begins. 
A winner of the 2011 Rainbow Awards (within the "Eternal Dungeon" omnibus), this tale of friendship, romance, and suspense can be read on its own or as the fourth volume in The Eternal Dungeon, an alternate history series set in a nineteenth-century prison where the psychologists wield whips. 
The Eternal Dungeon series is part of Turn-of-the-Century Toughs, a cycle of diverse alternate history series (The Eternal Dungeon, Dungeon Guards, Michael's House, Life Prison, Commando, Waterman, Young Toughs, and Dark Light) about adults and youths on the margins of society, and the people who love them. Set in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, the novels and stories take place in an alternative version of America that was settled by inhabitants of the Old World in ancient times. As a result, the New World retains certain classical and medieval customs.

    “I hope this is my year – the year when I start making new friends, lose my spots, lose my virginity (and my religion), get decent GCSE results so I can get into the sixth-form, and most importantly, get Patrick Garrison to fall completely in love with me. If I can achieve any of these things then 1995 will be the perfect year.” 
    
    So begins Journals of a Gay Teen, the story of a young man attempting to come to terms with his sexuality and his obsessive love with the popular straight boy at school who doesn’t love him back. Navigating his way through exam stress and the fallout of crumbling friendships, he escapes into music, books, and art, while documenting it all in his journals. 
    
    In his debut fictional memoir, Peter Hartford has captured the pain and alienation of being young and gay in the 1990s and the bittersweet moments of unrequited love.

    Dancing barefoot on the beach might seem an odd thing to do, but it brings two men together at just the right moment for their worlds to collide.
