“A rich layering of motive and emotion . . . robust dialogue, streetwise humour and muscular, mischievous vernaculour” Independent

Set on the streets of Brixton, south London, BRENTON BROWN is a fatal love story about a man who never got over his first love, a perfect love with his half-sister Juliet that has left him unable to form any real relationships since they both decided it must end.

“Wheatle’s dialogue sings” Guardian

Juliet is consumed by guilt because she knows that her half-brother, Brenton, grew up in children’s homes with no family to speak of, while she received all her mother’s love. She has a career with good prospects in politics, and has married Clayton, a successful banker, to please her mother. He treats her daughter, Breanna, like his own – but secretly he has always suspected that there has been something going on between Juliet and Brenton.

Unable to let go physically or emotionally, Brenton takes the advice of his longstanding friend Floyd, and decides to start a new life in another country. When their good intentions fail, Juliet and Brenton must pay the ultimate price.

A story about family ties, forbidden love and life, BRENTON BROWN is shot through with robust humour, unforgettable characters, unerringly pitched dialogue and towering emotion.
