Undercover: Operation Julie – Some Reviews
‘Undercover Operation Julie – The Inside Story,’ documents everyday life of undercover work as the author, Stephen Bentley, won the confidence of the gang members. Bentley tells in his book how he built a “perfect” relationship with Smiles, an important gang member. But this friendship almost undermined the whole operation.- Dominic Blake, BBC News England, October 2, 2016.
“This is an enlightening account of the war on drugs.” – InD’Tale Magazine
“Compelling insight to the life, mental make-up and identity confusion of someone deep undercover …” – Amazon Review
“Inside the head of an undercover cop is a scary place to be which adds a fascinating dimension to this account of Operation Julie. For me the latter half of the book confirms my own view on the failed ‘War on Drugs’ in favour of the Portuguese approach of decriminalisation and treatment. It is told with a no holds barred, sometimes brutal, honesty and is greatly enhanced by this. A great listen.” – Audible UK Review
“One of my favourite reads of 2017” – Goodreads
“The UK’s Donnie Brasco; A must read” – Goodreads

Who The F*ck Am I? Review
I knew when I read the author’s first book Undercover: Operation Julie although non-fiction that he could make the transition to writing fiction; I was right. He has an ease of language that lends itself to storytelling; he tells it as if he was there in the plot and why shouldn’t he having been an undercover cop in the real world? Not that Steve Reagan is meant to be him, but having the experience means he can do whatever he wants with his fictional characters and they will always be believable. Wasn’t too sure about the title until I began to read it and hope it doesn’t put people off from reading this book. Thrown into an undercover world where the Legend (who you are meant to be) is created for you it’s only a matter of time before the one starts to interfere with the other and you ask that question.
There aren’t many crime authors who could write a scene where a big gangland mobster puts a hand to your head as if it were a gun and simulates a close contact assassination that is frighteningly real except someone who has been there and done that!
The book is three dimensional, it’s not merely a descriptive adventure into the shady world of the criminal, it’s multi-layered and analytical which is often missing from other crime author’s work. I was extremely impressed by the prose. His characterisation verges on exceptional as is their interaction with each other. Stephen Bentley is a real contender in the world of crime writing, I hope he sticks at it. I think he has a real gift and insight into the criminal mind which I would love him to explore. – Pat McDonald British Crime author.
Steve Regan, now known as Ryan, is undercover in Thailand, looking for a Texan named Les Watkins, the biggest drug smuggler in Thailand.
He is using himself as bait to score $500,000 worth of drugs from the Thai Mafia and to get closer to Watkins.
He becomes involved with Fon, a beautiful Thai woman and they both get involved in the dangerous operation.
Meanwhile, Carlos Vitale and Regan/Ryan’s nemesis is in Thailand fleeing from the US after ordering the death of the heads of 3 crime families.
When in mortal danger will he choose his new life or another alternative?
Regan is BACK!
I am so pleased Stephen Bentley has written another Regan story, I LOVE him!!
The first book ‘Who the F*** am I?’ was brilliant and I wasn’t disappointed with this one. Regan is still risking his life and wondering why he is doing it. The story is strong as are the characters. It made me laugh, cry and cringe (some scenes are wickedly descriptive).
The author keeps the story short and sweet with no padding and unwanted descriptions of the scenery; it is pure action and thrills.
I recommend this book and indeed the Regan series they are excellent and a real joy to read.– Breakaway Reviewers Amazon UK Top 500 Reviewer.
