Publisher's Summary

Fighting on the frontline of the war against crime, Cam Addicott was one of the very few hard-boiled and highly experienced surveillance operatives to get called up to the secretive and elite Alpha Projects unit - a group of dedicated undercover customs officers. Alpha Projects unit hunted the UK's most dangerous criminals by extraordinary means – starting with the interception and decoding of their phone calls.
Cam soon knew the lives of the people he hunted better than they knew each other. The team shadowed gangsters as they mixed with celebrities, as they brokered huge drug deals in nightclubs and airports, until finally, it was time for Alpha to strike. In this riveting and brutal true story, a cast of unforgettable Mission Impossible characters go far beyond the call of duty to take down their most elusive target, as the lives of the hunted and hunter weave together in an explosive narrative.

An amazing account of crime and police activity in the UK by an undercover officer that reads like a thriller. Listening to it is like actually listening to the man telling you his story. You won't be able to stop.

Boring and Unconvincing

The book is written in a very similar style to Andy McNab's 'Immediate action' The problem here is it isnt a story about elite special forces and their life and death struggle, but about a customs officer who follows people and listens in on their phone calls. It therefore reads like a 10 year old telling his friends what he got up to at the weekend and wildly exaggerating in the manner that school boys will.
The book devides into 3 parts. Part one is a poor attempt to make surveillance work more interesting than it actually is and was like a bad chapter from an Ian Fleming novel.
Part two is about listening into phone conversations of criminals and is quite interesting although the author is very keen to impress on the reader how clever he is and how stupid the criminals are.
Part three is the Author 'bigging up' the role of customs officers in law inforcement and telling the reader that every other law inforcement agency is comprised of incompetent cretins ( a theme that repeats throughout the book). When he's not doing that he's whining about his own bosses,his salary,and his colleagues.
The narrative is a one man ego trip that I suspect is more fiction than fact. Its a negative and bitter view tinged with sadness written by a man completely obsessed with his job at the cost of everything else in his life...
