The Double Life of Jonathan King
For nine months, Jon Ronson conducted exclusive interviews with Jonathan King, his friends, and his victims.
He has pieced together the full story of his crimes - of a show business paedophile ring... and of the now infamous Walton Hop disco, where King would pick up many of the boys. It is the story of how pop impressarios in the 1970s made up their own rules when it came to relating to their fans.
But this story also occupies paedophilia's greyest area - involving boys who were sometimes just weeks from the age of consent, and who frequently went back for more.
Is Jonathan King a dangerous predator, or a victim of the shifting sands of morality?
