"Goodmans Hotel" is a gay love story set in 1990s London. Mark, a City high-flyer, is irresistibly attracted to Tom, a manual worker from a tough neighbourhood. Both men have been marked by past ordeals.
Conflict between powerful cabals in the City firm causes Mark to leave, and he puts all his resources into setting up a gay guest house "Goodmans Hotel". There he hopes for release from the heartlessly competitive norms of his old working life.
He takes in an eighteen year old runaway, Darren, but a crisis forces Mark and Tom apart, until eventually the "family" are reunited in the final chapter, with a deeper understanding of life.
