I must admit coming from the area this book is based around, It is sadly true there are many carachters of similar stature that are portrayed in this book.
You really feel for the man in the situations he comes across.
A very good account of an undercover cop. Worth buying.

This was very good apart from about the first half of the book being more about his early life in the police than his undercover work, which came later. The undercover bit was clearly described, but he tells us what happens rather than giving a huge amount of context. It's rather sad, because this guy ended up quite damaged by the work he did for our police force :(

Having been in "The Job" and in the same force at the same time as David, I commend him for this incredible work. He captures precisely the attitudes and total lack of care practiced by senior managers in the force at that time. His no holds barred story is both dark and frightening, but I can assure any potential reader it is a fantastic story of life as a UC only a few years ago. Thankfully more effort is given to counselling of officers now, but then we told simply "grow a pair and get on with it." Cracking read.

The book gave an excellent insight into how police oficers used to work in the eighties and by stark comparison describes the current skills required in the force today. Unfortunately there was limited expansion regarding the life as an 'undercover officer' - perhaps due to reasons of confidentiality?
Generally a good read and worth buying , but it never got down to the real nitty gritty of undercover work.

I thought this was a real page turner and it was fascinating to learn about the real life of a UC. I just hope his force has better counselling procedures in place nowadays.

Excellent book on undercover work. Exciting and easy to read. The only downside is the man devoted his life for no return or thanks

This book is one of the rare books, that when started, you just must finish it. Definitely a must read.
