A memoir by a man who tells his story with brutal honesty, this book delves into the darker side of Bristol - a side that few even know about.

Paul Scrase ran brothels, had a hand in drugs, and spent time in prison.

But he is also shown as a loving family man, someone who managed to successfully run legitimate companies and help train construction workers in the Middle East.

No, this is not a book of glamour and airy prose, but a rollicking account of things most readers will find shocking - providing an insight into Bristol like never before.

Yet what could amount to a rogue's tale of misdeeds is also an intensely human journey, imparting lessons to us all. "Bristol - a city renown for its creativity, `green' ethos, and vibrant cultural scene.

But behind the acclaim and awards is a world of crime, prostitution, grinding poverty and violence.

Paul Scrase's book reveals this world like no other."
