the rise, fall and ultimate redemption of a wannabe player in the global narcotics business. Cameron White wasn?your archetypal drug dealer. He juggled a successful career as a talent and literary agent with an equally successful career as a dealer. Both paid well, but unfortunately he derived as much pleasure from partaking of the drugs as he did from the money he made from them. A rational person, despite his addiction, he realised what he was getting into and repeatedly tried to run away, but wherever he went the drugs went with him - from New York to Los Angeles, thailand, Berlin and Sydney. It was only in Australia that he decided to turn his back for good on a life revolving around drugs. He could see that the global drug war had been lost and that radical action in the form of legislation was necessary in order to take the criminality out of the problem and turn it into a medical one. He returned to the UK and, avoiding his old stomping ground in London, checked himself into a clinic where he got the support he needed. He has now been clean for three years and is waiting for the woman who supported him through his ordeal to join him from Sydney. His story is not glamorous, but rather gives an insight into what it is really like in the twilight world of dealers, users and abusers. He believes that there is light at the end of the tunnel for those caught in the downward spiral of drug use and this book shows that it is possible to reach it.
