Editorial Reviews

Review

'Undercover Operation Julie - The Inside Story,' documents everyday life of undercover work as the author, Stephen Bentley, won the confidence of the gang members.He set out to build trust and socialise with key members of the hippie community - offering services clearing trees or helpfully putting their van to use offering to move people's furniture."On one comic occasion an upright piano went hurtling out the back of a van while the gang attempted furniture removal after a drinking and cannabis-smoking session."On another occasion he enhanced his deep cover by directing drunken abuse against a village constable."The truncheon-wielding PC chased the hippies from the pub, although as Mr Bentley recalls, the officer's 'athleticism had long gone' so they were able to out run him.By then, Mr Bentley was so assimilated into the group that they gave him the nickname 'cop killer' - because of his abuse of the officer."
Bentley tells in his book how he built a "perfect" relationship with Smiles, an important gang member. But this friendship almost undermined the whole operation."Really, when I look back, I wonder how I kept it together," Bentley told the BBC. "There was one occasion that stands out." he added.- Dominic Blake, BBC News England, October 2, 2016.

About the Author

Stephen Bentley is a former police Detective Sergeant and barrister (trial attorney) from the UK. He is now a freelance writer and HuffPost UK blogger. His memoir 'Undercover: Operation Julie - The Inside Story' is a frank account of his undercover detective experiences during Operation Julie - an elite group of detectives who in the 1970’s successfully investigated one of the world's largest drugs rings. When he isn't writing, Stephen follows the (mis)fortunes of Liverpool Football Club from afar and relaxes on the beaches of the Philippines with his family where he now lives. Stephen is currently working on a number of books including Book Two in the fictional Steve Regan Undercover Cop Series. He would like you to know that he will donate a portion of all book sales royalties to the James Bulger Memorial Trust, a UK registered charity. You may find him on Twitter as @StephenBentley8
