Publisher's Summary

Shaun Attwood arrived in Phoenix, Arizona, a penniless business graduate from a small industrial town in England. Within a decade, he became a stock-market millionaire. But he was leading a double life.

After taking his first Ecstasy pill at a rave in Manchester as a shy student, Shaun became intoxicated by the party lifestyle that would change his fortune. Years later, in the Arizona desert, Shaun became submerged in a criminal underworld, throwing parties for thousands of ravers and running an Ecstasy ring in competition with the Mafia mass murderer Sammy 'The Bull' Gravano.

As greed and excess tore through his life, Shaun had eye-watering encounters with Mafia hit men and crystal-meth addicts, enjoyed extravagant debauchery with superstar DJs and glitter girls, and ingested enough drugs to kill a herd of elephants. This is his story.

Much longer than the first edition!

This book is a fast-paced spiral into drug crazed insanity. It's a true story that will blow your mind. Having read the first edition years ago, I decided to try the second, which includes even more stories than the first and even crazier! Attwood really takes you there with his descriptions. For example "Next room. Fashion show. A stage lit pink and blue by filtered spotlights fixed to metal ladder structures. A woman struts on the runway in a tight shirt with silver flames, a jacket dangling from her elbows, blue leopard print with combed white plush drooping from the bottom, bright-pink patent vinyl trousers completing the look. Primo walks on in a white suit hand-painted with orange and green stripes and spots, his torso naked and hairless, carrying a tray with glasses and a pitcher patio set, seven-inch-thick platform heels on circus shoes, with grey vacuum cleaner tubes spiralling around his ankles. A woman in a white faux-rabbit-fur bolero crop jacket over nude breasts sashays with strength and confidence, a Betty Boop tattoo peeking out of white thong panties, curves dressing her up."

I highly recommend this, and the new edition of hard time.

Gripping and laugh out loud funny

What a story, gripping and laugh out loud funny (which got me some strange looks on the train).
An amazing story told and narrated perfectly.
I can hear my wolves howling now

On to the next instalment

Why?

Why get an American narrator to read a book by a bloke from Widnes? Every time he says mate or la I cringe. It's a bizarre choice to have made and it goes someway to spoiling a very decent book.

a great book giving an insight into the rave scene

although I am more than old enough to remember the rave scene I was not a part of it and nor did I ever try recreational drugs, this was an often funny but also informative ride thru that era, I would also recommend the follow-up books in the series, having read hard time on kindle and found it hard to put down, well worth a read/listen

very entertaining

Almost too crazy a lifestyle to be real, funny hearing American narrator reading scouse slang!

Party Time Raving Arizona Shaun Attwood

I got this Audio edition free via a discount code from the Author for a honest review of the book.
I found this book really interesting, Exciting and it gives people an insight into the drug scene and how they can affect you and how the drugs can change your life, I have read Hard Times, So also wanted to read this one. It was well written and tells you how Shaun started to run raves and what it was like to become a top drug dealer, Thinking he'd probably never get caught, This book tells you how the police caught up with him and what it was like to be in prison abroad.
The only thing that spoilt my enjoyment was the narration of the book, The drawl of the American voice just didn't work for me, I think it would be better with an English narrator and to be told more like a story and not like just someone reading words off a page. Thanks to Shaun Attwood for allowing me to have this book and I look forward to reading/listening to your other books as I love your true life story.

Excellent read!

I've read all of Shaun's books and love them! This book gives you a background to the partying/raving scene and how he got into the drugs business. It's fast-paced, fun and thrilling and I honestly couldn't put it down! It's good to read on its own or a great beginning to his other books!
