About this deal

I would say it is impossible to have a healthy relationship with anyone keeping that level of secrecy, I felt sorry for Sam and his children.

Woods gives a telling description of the Manchester Police Force, where a special task force of 12 men is set up to investigate drugs (amongst a police force of about 11,000 men), as it cannot be guaranteed that amongst the general force there aren't several policemen or detectives being paid by drug dealers to leak them information. The book is set into chapters of towns where he was thrown in as an undercover operative with the objective being to arrest the main drug dealer of the area.

What’s most alarming is the point Neil demonstrates with painful clarity: that police action drives much of this. They way he always remembered that addicts and people caught up in drug use or dealing are often the victims and they needed help, support and the protection of the police instead of being collateral damage was what fascinated me the most.Violence in our inner cities is as bad as ever - while crime rates as a whole are falling, knife crime and gun crime is hardly a thing of the past on the sink estates that dot British cities. Neil recounts how at one point, while chasing a major league dealer in Manchester, he came into contact with a secret squad of twelve police officers. And yet when he took that critical look at his life’s work he could only conclude one thing: that it was a complete waste of time.

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.

Exceptionally well written with a subject matter so many of us encounter or have a predisposed opinion of, without having actually experienced it first-hand, nor attempted to grasp an opinion outside that of usual public perception. During his career he witnessed increased brutality, violence meted out to addicts who spoke out, or even who introduced a stranger to their dealer. I enjoy books like this and found it an excellent read, the undercover work was exciting and at times unputdownable. Good Cop, Bad War is an intense account of the true effects of the war on drugs and a gripping insight into the high pressure world of British undercover policing. Can't believe so many people don't see this bigger picture that says one simple things - nothing, fucking nothing comes from out nowhere.K. Made up exclusively of law enforcement figures, LEAP campaigns for an end to the drug war, and for drug policy to be based on evidence. And to the politicians and so on that make these shit policies, you've failed your office, your nation, your people, your family, your god (if you have one), your people.
