Twenty years undercover - one man's true story of life as an undercover cop. A must-listen for fans of Donnie Brasco.
For over 20 years, Joe Carter has worked for the police as an undercover cop. He travelled the globe on different passports. He fraternised with thieves and international drugs and arms dealers. He worked alongside the most dangerous criminals. Always fearing that this life would come crashing down around him at any point.
His story is a gripping account of the secret, solitary work of an undercover officer and the many sticky situations he found himself in as well as the moving confession of the difficulty in reconciling his two identities with his family life. It's a story of his beginnings, from being a young East End apprentice to the mean streets he walks today, and reveals the many highs and the painful lows of going undercover.
This audiobook explores the resilience needed to lead a double life, the thrilling challenge of working with the biggest criminals in Britain and how Carter maintains a sense of justice through the many adventures he encounters.
Monotone narration, didn't have you gripped, it was ok but dull. Thankfully it was only 8 hours of listening.

A potentially interesting and exciting topic rendered deadly dull by the inclusion of every possible detail for no reason. It's a simple recounting of events with no story. I don't like to be negative, but this needed the help of a ghost writer.
