The searing new novel from the bestselling author of POPCORN, INCONCEIVABLE and DEAD FAMOUS
The war on drugs has been lost but for want of the courage to face the fact that the whole world is rapidly becoming one vast criminal network. From pop stars and princes to crack whores and street kids. From the Groucho Club toilets to the poppy fields of Afghanistan, we are all partners in crime.
HIGH SOCIETY is a story or rather a collection of interconnected stories that takes the reader on a hilarious, heart breaking and terrifying journey through the kaleidoscope world that the law has created and from which the law offers no protection.
“A fix of high comedy from a writer who provokes almost as much as he entertains”
“As I raced to the end, I found myself applauding Elton. This is a tough subject tackled with courage and commitment”
Will Hutton, Observer
“Packed with Elton's trademark sharp wit and biting social commentary.. colourful and thought-provoking”
Waterstone's Books Quarterly
