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 renowned 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.”
