Meet Harry Starks: club owner, racketeer, porn king, sociology graduate, and keen Judy Garland fan. There is - contrary to popular belief - a business like show business: It’s what Harry does. Fronting violence with rough charm and cheap glamour; performing menace while trying to jump the counter into legitimacy. Set in '60s London, the Kray twins and infamous landlord Peter Rachman are incidental characters in this superb novel.

"Not for the fainthearted"
If you like rough gay sex, and violent criminality this is for you.... I don't so I abandoned any further listening about 20 minutes in. Can't really fairly rate it as I was completely alienated by its style and content.
