About the quadrilogy
BOOk 1 - There's no room for Jugglers in my Circus "There's no room for jugglers in my circus" tells the tale of a young man's drug-addled youth misspent in Borehamwood and London where cheap gossip was rife, "friends" were just ships passing in the night, and dreams remained just that. Given the young man's drug habit, his involvement with gangsters, violence and prison seems inevitable. Cookster dissects the psyche of personalities fueled by drink, drugs and power, and draws colorful sketches of the different types of gangster from "the Real McCoy", a highly influential "gentleman" who practices a code of honor among thieves, to the "plastic gangster", a "wannabe" who has all the bluster but none of the power. Despite everything, there is light at the end of the tunnel for the narrator, as he retains his hopes for the future, and keeps his aspirations alive amid the chaos. And all the time the story is fueled by cocaine, the devil's dandruff.

Hertfordshire Life Magazine Review
There's no Room for Jugglers in my Circus Jason Cook, from Borehamwood, was every mother's nightmare, a bored teenager with no direction but a lust for money and excitement. His distaste for a life of hard work, which his parents had, and a sizeable drug habit led to his involvement with gangsters, violence, and cocaine-filled days. Ultimately he realised the precarious and meaningless nature of this life and that his parents were happy and he was not. During a spell in prison, Jason, who is dyslexic, began writing and since his release has admirably gone on to create a new and legitimate life for himself. This book exposes the unglamorous world of someone whose life is dominated by drug addiction and the shady activities that fund such a a life style.

"I read this book in two days. I dont normally read but as soon as I started to read this I found it very hard to put down. I cannot imagine how frightened this person might of been in some of the situations. He seemed like a gentleman in disguise . I don't know if he is a new author but would like more books from him. I like the way he starts to write and goes off into detail then comes back to the story where it is. I cannot wait for the next saga so come on author let us have some more please. Well done" (Lulu Kay)

Mr Cook seems to have had a tough 10 years or so from his teens to his twenties. Operating in the lower reaches of a drugs gang on the edge of London, he obviously enjoyed the highs, but got sucked further into a living hell. His true story is a salutary lesson to young people who might be tempted by the so-called glamour of the cocaine culture, and makes useful reading for parents of teenagers, and school teachers. It's better than any amount of preaching by do-gooders. I recommend it. To read more reviews click here...
