And then, in response to the call to arms in the wake of the July 2005 London bombings, he transferred from Hackney's Child Protection Team to S-Squad, an elite counter terrorism unit. From day one he was thrown into the front line of a number of heart-stopping operations that involved deadly armed hunts for suicide bombers and bomb factories. As Harry won respect for his bravery and commitment, he was asked to lead increasingly complex and sensitive missions. Terror Cops covers, among other subjects, the Haymarket bomb, the Glasgow airport attacks, the liquid bomb plot, how terrorist cells are created, the use of terrorist training camps in the UK, and working in tandem with the Muslim community.

Good listen for an intro to anti-terror policing
The book describes some recent terrorist convictions in the UK, the life of an anti-terrorist officer and background on the global intelligence operation. There are a few rather clunky chapters where the author has chosen to make points via a conversation. I was talking to so and so and said “These damn fundamentalists”, so and so said “They are not fundamentalist, a fundamentalist is …” but these didn't bother me too much.
Overall I enjoyed the book. It is certainly not a work of literature but I felt that the writing style worked well given the subject matter and that the narrator did a great job. I proved a real eye opener for me as much of what is covered doesn't make the news headlines and I have already recommended it to others.

To fight terror is sleepless hard work
I enjoyed this titke makes great reading for those who are interested in the lifestyles of the operatives in our special operations personnel to counter terrorism in the streets of the United Kingdom.
Full on interesting facts to the present history of those who attempt to kill, lame and destroy lives of everyday people, yet behind the scenes their are Special Branch Officers working tirelessly to intercept monitor and undermimd the actions of those who intend to pedal terror and its properganda in not just our great country.
Well worth a read....and will pull you up to speed to the current affairs of our Terror Cops.
