London, 1957. Derek Eveleigh is a skilled photographer, very down on his luck.  

A mysterious envelope arrives from a stranger asking him to take secret pictures of an elegant young woman as she walks in Holland Park. The reward is handsome, but the irresistible assignment takes a sudden, shocking turn.

Entangled, and compelled to understand, Derek is led into a seedy Soho nightlife populated by dubious characters.  What do an Irish comedian, an American saxophone player and a Russian magician have to do with the bloody event he has witnessed?  And how are these men connected to the woman in Holland Park?   

In attempting to learn the truth, Derek finds his whole life turned upside down.  Douglas Post’s wonderfully intelligent thriller does more than keep you on the edge of your seat – it examines the turbulent human heart. 

★★★★
“A superb show that takes you completely by surprise. It’s a thriller that genuinely holds the spectator in its thrall… all performed by just one actor, the multi-talented Simon Slater.”

The Telegraph

“A genuinely enveloping thriller… Douglas Post’s strikingly gripping yarn… is terrific”
Chicago Tribune

 “Bloodshot one-ups the typical thriller in an unexpected way: It also breaks your heart.”
The Vienna Review
