Of course, I'd prefer it if you remember me as I was at my height, before the past caught up with me so spectacularly - TV's Mr Friday Night with an enviable lifestyle and the nation at my feet.

Hello, I'm Johnny Debonair and this is my book - Murder Most Fab. Buy it. You won't regret it. Everything that has happened so publicly is explained. Of course, I'd prefer it if you remember me as I was at my height, before the past caught up with me so spectacularly - TV's Mr Friday Night with an enviable lifestyle and the nation at my feet. My fame might have looked easy to you at the time, but getting to the top of the celebrity ladder is hard work. It took talent, beauty, commitment and, uniquely in my case, a number of unfortunate deaths. If we were being picky you might describe me as a serial killer, but I really don't see myself that way. It sounds trite to say 'one thing led to another' but it's true. As you'll discover I owe something of my rise and my fall to three individuals: my mother, an eccentric country girl who taught me exhibitionism by hanging naked from the clocktower of Hythe town hall; Catherine, my best friend, then partner in business -- a devil in red heels, who, in her clear Essex accent, taught me how to 'look after number one'; and Timothy, who broke my heart and caused me to seek refuge in sex, money and celebrity. But in the end you have to take responsibility for your own actions. No one was forcing me, were they? I hope you, the public, can forgive me and enjoy this sordid tale for what it is -- my final entertainment for you.

Our excellent value books literally don't cost the earth
"A very funny novel ... I couldn't put it down" * Janet Street Porter, Marie Claire * "Clary is a good writer . . . A bit as you'd expect the author himself to be, Murder Most Fab has a dirty mouth and scant regard for morals but it is also very pleasant company." -- Louis Wise * Daily Express * "Murder Most Fab is actually a wonderful love story in disguise . . . Clary is at his best in the portraits of Johnny's mother and grandmother. The latter's final moments are truly affecting . . . Murder Most Fab is filthy, very funny and will be adored by his fans." -- Mark Sanderson * Evening Standard * "With all the ingredients that made Clary a success, plus an extra-large helping of sinister stroytelling, Murder Most Fab is viciously funny and deliciously salacious." -- Rob Dawson * Gay Times * "Murder Most Fab is a slick page-turner, darkly funny, incongruously believable . . . you are completely swept along by it." -- Chrissy Iley * The Guardian *
