A love story of sorts, set within the life and times of Ziggy Stardust.

An intriguing mystery beginning in the early 1970’s. A story of sexual awakening, betrayal and cultural conflict, entwined with David Bowie’s rise to stardom.Alice, a world-weary woman, meets a stranger in the park. She is the scarred survivor of failed relationships, none of which have ever measured up to her first love, Danny. The stranger attracts, but is there any future with him, and why is he so mysterious? Christmas 1972. Alice meets Danny, a shy and beautiful boy at the youth club disco. They fall in love with all the intensity of ‘first love’. Then Danny sees an orange-haired, sexually ambiguous Bowie perform ‘Starman’ on ‘Top Of The Pops’ and becomes obsessed with ‘Ziggy Stardust’. But is it just the music, or the sexual challenge that Bowie presents, that attracts? Danny embarks on a personal journey to find his true self that leads him into ‘Rock ‘n’ Roll’, the orbit of a rising star, and a darker life. Meanwhile, David Jones, as ‘Ziggy Stardust’, is progressing along the path to stardom. When he bursts upon the public, it shatters convention, blasting the grey early 70’s world away in a riot of glitter, ‘glam’ and trashed sexual boundaries. Nothing will ever be the same again. For him, Danny or Alice……Part love story, part thriller, including the true story of David Bowie’s rise to stardom as ‘Ziggy Stardust’; this book is historically accurate. Recreating some of Bowie’s live appearances as ‘Ziggy Stardust’ from a fan’s perspective, it is filled with 70’s nostalgia, and fascinating details of the ‘Ziggy’ story.

It’s A Blag! Volume II – Published today! More Police tricks & funny stories..

IAB 2 Cover V1 31.3.20

Link to book on Amazon UK

Welcome once more to the hidden world of Police humour. Another dose of pranks and funny stories from inside ‘The Job’, showing that the Police are, after all, human. Humour and playing tricks on each other helps to cope with the things they have to face, but that does mean that sometimes the joke is very ‘dark’. This little book also delivers a nostalgia hit, as many of the stories date back to the days of ‘Life On Mars’ and even further, preserving a different, more innocent, world.

Other books in this series:

‘It’s A Blag’ – the ‘dark art’ of Police humour, Volume I

‘One In For D & D’ – a hilarious expose of slang used by the Police.

The authors have many decades of policing experience between them, and have compiled these books with the help of colleagues. The contents are 100% genuine.

Available as a Paperback or Kindle version
