As the years passed and they crept into the middle classes and middle age, they remained a tight group, or so they insisted, even calling themselves 'the east van crows', a reference to the Crow Highway that flies over the Drive each night. They declared that they were friends for life. Until one day a particularly beautiful house on a particularly desirable side-street was listed for sale, and each of them was determined that they would sacrifice anything to own it.
