Undercover: Operation Julie – The Inside Story

book covers and AMS: okay amazon - you win


An Amazon UK #1 Bestseller on at least six separate occasions in four distinct categories since first published.

Amazon Blurb

In a Liverpool night club, the Canadian mobster said, “Are you guys cops?”

Steve Jackson heard him. His blood ran cold. 

Jackson wasn’t his real name. He was an undercover cop.

Ever wondered about the life of an undercover cop?

What it takes to infiltrate a worldwide drugs gang?

What it feels like to live a double life? – To ‘live a lie.’

Read this gripping true story of Britain’s biggest drug bust.

In March 1978, at the culmination of Operation Julie, fifteen defendants, including doctors, research chemists, a writer, and “professional” drug dealers were sentenced to a combined total of one hundred and twenty four years imprisonment.

Operation Julie is still today the point of reference for all British undercover operations and training. In 2011, the BBC claimed this massive and unique police operation was the start of the war on drugs.

The author, Stephen Bentley, was one of four undercover detectives engaged on Operation Julie, one of the world’s largest drug busts. Together with his undercover partner, he infiltrated the gang producing around 90 percent of the world’s LSD and uncovered a plot to import huge quantities of Bolivian cocaine into the UK.

Bentley operated in the era of no undercover training. He improvised as he went along. He was a pioneer infiltrator left to his own devices.

The underworld knew the author as Steve Jackson. How did he successfully infiltrate the two gangs? Did he have to take drugs, and how did ‘living a lie’ affect him?

The author and his book have featured on BBC Newsnight, BBC Wales News, BBC Radio 4 World at One and BBC Five Live; and also in London’s Guardian and Sunday Express newspapers. The book is also now adapted for a feature film.
