Little Martyrs by Mishka Lavigne
Ten years after the sordid crime they committed when they were children, Jacob and Ludo are released from prison. The two young men meet again under new identities through Minnie, a former runaway who rents her late newborn's room to Jacob. Searching for his brother in crime, Ludo sets up a studio next door. Three redemptions are possible: Jacob through martyrdom, Ludo through creation and Minnie through renewed desire.
