Format: Paperback
As it says at the end of one chapter - "Nothing more has been heard of him...what was he really up to?..was he using the drugs activities to cover his intelligence role.?...I don't suppose the mystery of Howard marks will ever be solved"

But this is only one small chapter on a most interesting factual story of the drugs scene in the 1970s, the police and society's attitude,commmunes, festivals, and the huge bust of Operation Julie ( after which acid has never really bee pure again), the lengthy ( for the time) sentences - throug the eyes of an undercover DS officer.

A bit sensationally written - imagine a cop full of the evils of 'pushers' writing in tandem with a tabloid journalist - but a mine of information none the less.
