Book Description

Pete Ashton is an undercover detective - tasked with smashing open the most dangerous drugs gangs blighting Britain's streets.
He targets hardened criminals - men at the top of their game, who have everything to lose, and who would not hesitate to put a bullet in his head if his cover is blown.
Crack gangs, heroin dealers, speed freaks - he's infiltrated them all, and put many of them behind bars.
This is the story of a life lived in the shadows - always looking over your shoulder, pushing yourself and your cover story to its limits - and the toll it takes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unsung Heroes 7 Jun. 2014
By Buster
Format:Kindle Edition
Unsung heroes
This book is a great read, a real eye opener to the world of drugs, drug dealers, addicts and the undercover cops who risk their lives in the fight against crime.
The drugs and dealers are a major threat to all people of all classes, one taste of the stuff and your hooked and its downhill from there. Ashton gives plenty of examples of these unfortunate addicts and the drug dealers who make a living out of them.
My adrenalin was pumping just reading his detailed description of some of his missions and I felt a great high when the drug dealers were brought to justice
I salute Ashton and people like him who go undercover to protect the people of this country, most of who we will never hear about.
A must read for anyone who is interested in learning about the real world that exists on our own doorsteps.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good book 6 Jun. 2014
Good book by someone who was evidently an accomplished Test Purchase Officer.
Got lots of sympathy and understanding with this book, and the desperate underclass he describes is a sad fact of life in the UK today - something which many many people never get to experience or see.
Doing this sort of work certainly made me think that the 'war on drugs' was somewhat futile, putting oneself on offer for not much gain!
Anyway, kudos to the author, and those others who do this stuff - its certainly 100 per cent harder than 'proper' undercover work, and much more challenging.

This book takes you through the very early days of the authors undercover career and how it progresses. It's interesting and well written with plenty of detail throughout a good read and well worth a go.

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A good read,Amusing and tragic in equal measure, if a little scary thinking that this world probably exists not far from where I live...But this is the real world, and every credit to these people who take big risks every day to try to keep us all safe... a good book and well recommended.
