Bill Frost was a talented and highly respected Times journalist. In this heart-rending but intelligent memoir, his sister, Clare Campbell, tells of his struggle with addiction, especially cocaine, his descent into the worst hell imaginable, and his eventual death, mind and body ravaged by drugs, alone in his London flat. Bill died from 'a wasting of the soul' caused by his long-term cocaine addiction and a naive, but dangerous entaglement with the world of drug crime. In this moving book, Clare describes the effect that this has had on herself, her marriage and her family. This is the definitive story about the effects of addiction and the raw truth that it can affect anyone. Loving Bill as she did, Clare needed to understand why this happened, to delve deeper into her past, and finally, to accept the painful reality that her brother's destiny haunts her own. This publication includes coverage of the sensational trial earlier in 2007.
