1963: the death of JFK and the birth of Dr Who. A craft passes over Billy Flowers's head, and he is doused in a strange, green mist. Billy, the Head Porter at Wentworth Train Station, becomes sick...but he also gains the ability to see people's darkest secrets. This would be a blessing for the detectives conducting a murder investigation, but for Billy it becomes a curse. He begins to realise the people he loves can no longer be trusted. Including his own wife. But Billy is suffering enough. His brother Stanley is in a coma. Then a teenage girl goes missing. As murder begins to surround him, and he uncovers those responsible, Billy gets dragged into a train ride across an old, bomb-blasted viaduct that will bring him face-to-face with the craft. In a race against time and sickness, Billy understands that he can only save what he can and let the rest go. Set against the backdrop of the social, political, and transportation changes of the 60's, Steam is a twisting and turning science-fiction thriller. Can Billy save the missing girl? His dying brother? His marriage? Billy Flowers is a good man in a bad place. Let the ride begin...
