Four million quid. There it was, inches away from me on a hotel table. Not in conventional currency, but in the world's deadliest commodity.
Heroin. The guy sitting opposite me was there to sell it. I was there to buy it. This was the trap we'd set for the biggest fish in international drug trafficking. And we were about to fry him alive...Peter Bleksley was the best undercover cop Scotland Yard ever had.
In over ten years operating in covert squads, he came up against some of the most hardened, lethal and bizarre underworld operations, constantly putting his life on the line so that the deadliest villians would end up where they belonged: behind bars. A master of disguise, he assumed numerous identities in order to get close to his targets - drug dealer, counterfeiter, gangster and hit man to name just a few.
So determined was he to nail his man, he would even have to take cannabis or cocaine to remain above the suspicion of gang bosses.
