A group of friends and their partners reunite at a house-warming party during a time that proves to be the epicentre of a tumultuous period in their lives. They wouldn't want each other to know about their navigational struggles through the complexities of life, but unavoidable conflicts are imminent. 

Things will never be the same again for all involved. Secrets and lies simmer before friendships and marriages collide amongst lustful betrayal and tragic discovery.

David hasn't told his friends that his wife has left him, while Greg is very open about the fact that he's separated from his and he's happily moved on with a younger woman. Marcus has an open marriage and is using it to his advantage as he attempts to blackmail his way to a promotion at work. Calvin's life seems perfectly content, but could this be too good to be true? Then there's Joel, a police detective investigating a murder, which has ties to more than one of their group, uncovering the hidden depraved behaviour of those that he thought he knew better.

Past indiscretions resurface and a murder investigation ensues, revealing that the age-old cliché, that it's a small world, is often startlingly accurate. 

Set in Birmingham, England, DISPOSITION is the third novel from D K Thomas.
