Bernard O'Mahoney's true story of the rise of the gangs supplying ecstasy and other drugs across the south of England exposes for the first time the intimidation, plain thuggery and murder that accompanies their illegal business.
He reveals how the supply of ecstasy has become the new focus for gangland Britain. Like a latter-day Mafia, these gangs have changed the face of the underworld, and will stop at nothing to ensure that they reap the huge profits the trade provides.
Bernard O'Mahoney was a member of the vicious club security "firm" which gained control of the Essex drugs underworld.
They were responsible for supplying the ecstasy pill that killed Leah Betts - an event which put intense police pressure on the gangs and meant that they turned on themselves.
He was witness to this shocking crime wave that ultimately led to the brutal killing of three Essex gang leaders.'So This is Ecstasy?' is a terrifying expose of the ruthless power struggles that characterize the new violence that is spreading across Britain.

I have re-read it many times and can honestly say that this is a very interesting book.

This book is succesful in showing the reader that the underworld is not all money and glamour. This book highlights the true state of the murky underworld that is involved in narcotics and the devestating effect that it can have.

I would recommend this book to anyone with an interest in True Crime.

Another damm good read from O'Mahoney 15 Aug 2000
By . - Published on Amazon.com
After reading "A Soldier of Queen" from the same author, I had no hesitation in ordering "Essex Boys". The book gives a rivetting account of life in the drugs underworld, with all the violence and lack of values contained therein. The best part of the book for me was where a Vicar, leading a funeral ceremony for a teenager, in his homily, did not blame the victim for taking the drugs, but rather placed guilt at all our doors "The truth is, we are all in part to blame." O'Mahoney agreed with these words which also make a lot of sense to me. Highly reccommended if you want to see some of what goes on in the drugs world.
