Publisher's Summary

Love crime thrillers? You'll love this hard-boiled crime fiction about an undercover cop authored by a former undercover cop, now a best-selling author.

If you liked TV shows such as Dragnet, The Sweeney, or The Professionals, you will surely love Steve Regan! 

It takes a detective to know a detective! Try the "real thing". It's different!

Introducing audiobook one in the Steve Regan Undercover Cop series of crime fiction novellas. From author Stephen Bentley comes a fictional undercover cop, Steve Regan, following on the success of his true-crime undercover police memoir Undercover: Operation Julie - The Inside Story.

In real life and while undercover, the author met a Mafia-connected gangster who involved Bentley, the undercover cop, in a conspiracy to import huge amounts of cocaine into the UK from Bolivia via Miami. The gangster was reported to have been dealt with by the DEA and sentenced to a 25-year prison sentence. But was he? And was he all he was supposed to be? 

This is where the author moves from fact (memoir) into fiction (this audiobook). Listening to this audiobook gives you some insight into the shadowy world of drugs and undercover cops. The title is a nod to the identity confusion experienced by undercover infiltrators. It's a world about which many simply don't know. 

Steve Regan, undercover detective, is tempted by the riches of drug smuggling so he can be free of debt, police bureaucracy, and help a loved one. He wonders whether he can go "rogue" and cross the line. 

Regan gets involved in one deal with a Miami-based drug lord. But is everyone who they say they are? 

Short, suspenseful entertainment from a writer who knows how to suck you into a story.

Undercover cop

I think some of the actions a bit on the shocking side but the characters are original and engaging and the plot is well thought out. The world is described well and it’s easy to picture the scene as you listen/ read along.

Realistic view of a dangerous profession

After reading Stephen Bentley's description of real world undercover cops in Operation Julie, I was expecting his first novel to reflect the realities he experienced in real life. I was not disappointed. Though there were periods where the story dragged a bit, another short chapter later, I was listening intently wondering and wishing how things were going to turn out.

The audio book is a great diversion while engaged in one of those boring tread mill exercise sessions. There were a couple of sessions that I extended because I wanted to hear what would happen next. Bentley admits in the beginning that parts of the story are derived from his real life's work as described in Operation Julie. It shows in his descriptions of colleagues and those with whom he associated in the alter ego of Steve Reagan.

Reading his first book is not a prerequisite to reading the first of his novels, but to me, it enhanced the realism he puts into his characters and it allows me to forgive those times when the characters in the novel are a bit larger than life.

All in all, it was a great listen. I am looking forward to more of Steve Reagan.

Very Interesting!

For long stretches of nights.

Never talk about that in public.

Hash tones and pierce mode

Using more than I usually do.

Suzy delivered a rousing speech.

You are into business and the time is up for you to pay your taxes can be very threatening. This reminded me of a poignant discussion I once had with my Line Manager.

The chicken cordon bleu remained uneaten. Isn’t such expression very interesting? Your Friends should be filtered in order for them to pass through the testing of trustworthiness. You need to order this book now and get to know this important truth about your line of friends.

What the fuck! Is the expression, my 10-year old son, EMSL told me that it was a foul language and should not listen to such a book. Well, he failed to know that the book is sweet to listen in spite of the foul language.

I’m a fucking nobody. Play acting? What the fuck you’re talking about? Fuck the ticket! I rather pay a fine of a ticket than being killed. It is also an important lesson I grabbed from this book, which might soon and very soon serve me like a recipe to save myself in any dangerous encounter. I don’t need to tell you more to that the book is awesome.

Who the fuck do you think you are?

I thought I’m going to die anyway, so I told them anyway. This is what fear can do to any of us. So, in such instances be very careful how you disclose life-threatening information to authorities of any kind.

In the next 30 seconds, the tables were turned around. A statement that made me reflect deeply on my past life and how the tables were turned around in my favour.

What are we going to do, are you in or out? Many a time, even in normal life, we need such frank lessons to be put across to either our friends or closed relatives. Because those who betrayed us aren’t our enemies in the first place, but closed members to us. So this book taught me to be vigilant in my future dealings with closed members in my personal life. You need to get it, please.

“Great tight nice pussy.” “See you in bed.” are expressions that made me love the book the more.

We all have experienced a situation like this before, wherein you are a peace abiding fellow and somebody from nowhere is there to just torment you. You’re obliged to give it back to them just like this case.

Mental toughness.

What beats my imagination is the patoi that was spoken in the process while the reading was going on. Very awesome, which made me feel like I was in Freetown.

Please get your copy and enjoy one of the best British narrators.

Great Novella

Stephen was an undercover cop and his expertise with the subject matter in this novella is clear. And, in fact, my only (minor) criticism of the whole thing is that this is stressed in the prologue - I'd have left this until the end and thrown the reader straight into the action. There are some nice twists en route to the end of this novel and the lead character feels like he will grow as the trilogy unfolds. The narrator is excellent and his English accent really works well with the material. Note: I solicited and received a free copy of this book for review. This review is my opinion and I have not been offered any inducements for a favorable review.

Good book

The sound is okay. I can hear some background static. But if you can get past that it is not a back listen. It moves pretty fast so I had to relished to some parts because I do things when I listen. I would recommend this book to the right person.

Fictional Operation Julie

I really enjoy Stephen Bentley’s books. This one is literally a fictional version of Operation Julie. As a person who has recently read, ‘Undercover: Operation Julie’, I loved how this book wasn’t too far away from the real story but took some characters and gave you a (probably) fictional look into their lives. I look forward to hearing the other audiobooks in the Steve Regan series!

A Good Series Start

The first half could have benefitted from more details about the proposed deal and workings of the international drugs business but did introduce the main protagonists well. It sets a good foundation for the second book, which I hope will be a little longer. The narators take on a scouser accent did sound a little cliché. Looking forward to book two.

I LOVED THIS BOOK!

I have read this book and loved it so much I got it on Audio. i am so pleased I did. Steve Regan and crew came alive for me. The Narrator was perfect and it was like listening to Regan. Whether you listen or read this book I'm sure you will love it as much as I did. Stephen Bentley is a superb Author and storyteller, I can not wait for his future ventures.

Undercover in the underworld

This book pulled me in from the start and had me engrossed to the very end.
The authors experience and knowledge of being undercover trying to infiltrate a drug cartel completely shone through giving me shocking glimpses in to the underworld.
The characterisation was brilliant and really gave a sense of the atmosphere and place.
The tension level was just right urging me to keep reading on.
I enjoyed this book very much and will be keeping an eye on this author in the future.
