But Sam has problems. He’s stuck in a dead-end job, out of money and his sex-life is non-existent. The local drug dealer and thug offers him work, but he is just using Sam as he attempts to break the stranglehold that his bosses have over the ecstasy trade in Britain.
Simon and Tony, it would seem, are legitimate businessmen running a successful record label. Having met at the very beginnings of the late 80s rave scene on the shores of Ibiza, they secretly control a criminal empire that has flooded the clubs with pills and made them both obscenely wealthy. And when Simon falls for the beautiful but devious and fame-hungry Kyla Andretti, someone Sam and his friends know all about, paths eventually cross and the quest for money, power and fame takes a sinister and murderous turn.
Little Men, for the first time fictionalises the actual events that led to ecstasy’s arrival in the UK and charts the highly criminal and dangerous global trade in drugs and the murky processes that happen in order to get the pills into the hands of the end user.
The disturbing tale unfolds through the eyes of the drug users, dealers, traffickers and police. At times it is funny, always entertaining, and the suspense and intrigue lasts right up until the darkly terrifying ending.
