The scary part is the two parallel worlds that he portrays and how on going to a town he managed to pick out the people to contact and within a couple of introductions he was face to face with some of the most dangerous people at loose in the country. Gave it three stars difficult to gauge how much is true as police are not necessarily going to want to reveal secret tactics but interesting as to what goes on the streets. There’s a moment in this book, after taking down a particularly nasty gang, a superior congratulations him on “Disrupting the drug flow into this city. The horrific account of the life on the streets but very eloquently conveys the authors change of perspective over his career. Firstly this makes a very interesting point about how police tactics have caused an arms race between them and gangs, who are now more violent than before.

In the end, the only people the police forces can bust are just ordinary addicts, they no longer have any access to the big dealers and gangs.

He’s a regular pundit on the subject of drugs and drug policy in the media, and starred in Channel 4 Drugs Live. You end up sympathising more with the users (who end up in prison) and disliking the drug squads, who only care about increasing the number of convictions and not helping people. He may well be right as it's the only one I have read, but it is a deeply disturbing insight into the murky world of drugs in this country. Once drugs are decriminalized everything can change for the better, especially if help is offered in place of persecution. He very much walked the walk, some of the things he experienced most people couldnt even imagine in theyre worst nightmares and he lived to tell the tale.

When Neil left the police and pursued a life of changing the course of the fight against drugs, I was riveted and it is pure proven logic.

I think what won me over was his acceptance on responsibility of his actions and the impact that he had on the peoples lives he had affected and by extension his ability to self reflect and understand the futility of the war he'd been fighting internally as well as externally in his career and through this his desire to learn and evolve from his experiences. He does love himself though and his ego I guess is the thing that kept him alive through his experiences. What we often hear from media propaganda about "war on drugs" is just oversimplified simulation of reality pretending to be the only and the only truth. It takes a certain courage for a person to take an unflinching look at their life’s work, a cold, forensic, unwavering look.
