9781492886495: Get Clean

Based on a true story... From the author of 5* reviewed "Son of a Serial Killer" GET CLEAN by Jams N. Roses Cocaine is everywhere. Young men and women sniff the 'recreational drug' as often as they spark up cigarettes or sip beer. It's typical of a generation educated by music videos and tabloid newspapers... I'm Jimmy Walker, a smart young man with a caring family around me. I'd have the world at my feet, if only I wasn't addicted to white powder. A change of scenery can be a good thing, but it turns out that moving from suburban England to the south of Spain isn't the best idea when trying to get clean. The Costa del Sol is Europe's main point of entry for my favourite poison. Under the Marbella sun, I'm falling deeper into the darkness of drug addiction. With pockets full of cash and bags full of Coke, I'm being led astray by a psychopath named Jason, an Aussie who loves the sort of random violence I'd only ever seen in films. Getting high is easy, and so is hitting rock bottom... But can I Get Clean?

About the Author:

Jams N. Roses is a father of one and grew up in Hertfordshire, England. He has spent a few years living on the Costa del Sol, Spain, and currently resides in Nice, France. He primarily writes novels steeped in crime with a psychological twist, but has a naughty sense of humour that can sneak its way into his work, so much so that his third of four releases, Extremely England is a hilarious, satirical comedy. IMPORTANT NOTE: Books by Jams N. Roses are rude, crude and brutally honest. They'll take you back to your misspent youth, and leave you wiping your brow for having survived it. These books are not family-friendly, Christian stories. If you are easily offended, won't acknowledge that drug or alcohol abuse exists, are disgusted that sex is more than just a tool for procreation, or can't stand to read the occasional swear word, then save your blushes and don't read these books. However, if you want to read about people living life on the edge, then you've come to the right place. From the author... "I love the creation of stories, and although I spend days and weeks and months working on a plot, it's the emotions of my characters that I enjoy delving into. My first published novel, 'Get Clean', really has my heart and soul poured into it. Although I feel a bit naked by putting a story out there that contains so much of my life, I'm happy with the book, and a little proud of my first writing achievement. Also available is 'Son of a Serial Killer'. This story was born in my mind when I was going through a difficult phase in my life. I felt let down by the person closest to me, and I was angry and upset. What better way to expel those emotions than to throw them into a book? The story itself isn't based on my life like my previous novel, but the emotions captured within the pages are feelings I had to battle with for far too long. My third release, 'Extremely England', is something completely different. It's a satirical comedy poking fun at society and the way it is portrayed by the media - I enjoyed writing something that wasn't so dark for a change if I'm honest! Just recently, I've released my fourth novel on Amazon. Back to the darker side of life, 'Finding Her Feet' is the tale of a young girl, who grows up in a family that suffered a terrible tragedy. To be read with a box of tissues handy. I am a big film fan, and would have to admit that I have an eye on the 'filmability' of my stories when writing them. One day..."

Review:

"This author wrote an excellent novel... It's dark, raw, venegeful, slow build of suspense, crime/mystery... With plenty of blood. A realistic plot, characterization, and perfect depiction of a drug addicts' world. By the time I was in the middle of the story it became so intense with a shocking, sick, twisted ending, that I was hanging on the edge of my seat. This is definitely a page turner..." - Robin Lee - Amazon Top 500 Reviewer

"This story reads more like a memoir than fiction. It is intense, brutally honest and realistic in portraying the dark side of the drug world with betrayal and murder. The author has done a great job in writing a gritty tale showing the dark and evil world of drug abuse and the lengths that those people will go to for sex, money, and drugs. The talk, the slang, the methods are all spot on, again, seemly more of a authentic snapshot then make-believe." - Dennis Waller - Amazon Top 500 Reviewer

"I found Roses to be particularly brilliant in his depiction of the character changes that many cocaine addicts undergo. I lost two friends to the drug and found the parallels between them and Jimmy uncanning. Whether you see this as a warning, a life-like portrayal of that particular scene or as action packed thriller, it is a gripping book that can serve all three of those purposes. Roses writes uncompromising, raw and powerful, life-like prose that may offend the weak hearted but does so with a greater purpose." - Christoph Fischer - Amazon Top 1000 Reviewer
