The Secret

A Prequel To The Gripping Steve Regan Undercover Cop Thriller Series

No ordinary job. No ordinary life. Just how does someone become an undercover cop?


Find out in this gripping prequel to the Steve Regan Undercover Cop Thriller series by tagging along with Steven Hanrahan as a young C.I.D. detective in 1970’s Liverpool. Mentally scarred by a tragic event involving a fatal car crash and the loss of loved ones, he is summoned to see the Chief Constable. Instead of being assessed for his fitness for duty as he expected, he finds himself offered the chance of his first undercover role.

On accepting the role, Hanrahan’s life is now changed forever as he moves to the ‘Smoke’ using a different identity. The legend of Steve Regan is created with a foolproof backstory so he can infiltrate the international crime gang behind England’s biggest sporting secret. A secret so shocking it could taint the image of British sport irreversibly if it were ever divulged.

What is that secret? Is it worth dying for?
