Summary

In Glasgow in the early 1980s, cocaine was called Happy Dust. At parties of the glamorous and wealthy, a few lines of Charlie and a humdrum party could become an orgy. The party was over. Some of the gang did deals with detectives in hotel rooms. The good times might have been over for the Happy Dust Gang, but their legacy lives on to this day.

The Happy Dust Gang Summary

The Happy Dust Gang by D Leslie

Charlie, snow, toot, white: cocaine goes by many different names. But in Glasgow in the early 1980s, they called it Happy Dust. At no-holds-barred parties of the glamorous and wealthy, cocaine was the new aphrodisiac. A few lines of Charlie and a humdrum party could become an orgy. Hot from the forests of Colombia, Charlie flooded onto the streets of Glasgow and was passed along the line to the cocktail set, highly paid sports stars and yuppies desperate for kicks and thrills. Behind it all was a man they called the Parachutist. But all too soon, the party was over. People became too greedy and the Parachutist was double-crossed. Some of the gang did shady deals with detectives in hotel rooms; others flew to seek shelter in the sun, their reputations destroyed but not their fortunes. The good times might have been over for the Happy Dust Gang, but their legacy lives on to this day.
