A UK bestseller many times over, Bentley’s true crime undercover cop memoir documents everyday life of undercover work as the author, Stephen Bentley, won the confidence of the gang members. Bentley shows in his book how he built a “perfect” relationship with Smiles, an important gang member. But this friendship almost undermined the whole operation.

Operation Julie, Britain’s biggest drug bust,  is still today the point of reference for all British covert police activities.

His book is now adapted to become a feature film.
