Sex, drugs, murder, mayhem . . . and the hits keep coming. Journalist Frank Owen took a six-year plunge into the seductive and dirty world of Clubland--the cutting-edge music scene orgy of the '90s. We track the progress of high-flying club owners in constant competition to create the most extravagant, decadent, and mind-blowing venues. Predictably, these same owners are swallowed whole by their illusions as they themselves become victims of drug addiction while loosely managing a coterie of hustlers, drug dealers, and "scene-makers." Between hits of Ecstacy, animal tranquilizers, and cocaine, there is crime galore and the inevitable attempted payback in court. The dramatis personae all end up broken from the experience . . . the party over. A fine read by Gerard Doyle. D.J.B. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 03]
