Description

'Undercover, you're never just acting; you're only ever a different version of yourself.'

Neil Woods spent fourteen years (1993-2007) infiltrating drug gangs as an undercover policeman, befriending and gaining the trust of some of the most violent, unpredictable criminals in Britain. But Neil was never your stereotypical gung-ho, tough-guy copper. This is the story of how a thoughtful, idealistic character learned to use his empathetic nature to master some of the roughest, most dangerous work in law enforcement. There was no training, no manual and no plan for when things went wrong; he was just dropped at a corner and told to make connections. But, inevitably, having swords thrust against his jugular, witnessing beatings, stabbings, and gangsters burning suspected rats with acid took its toll.

Drawing on Neil’s experiences, with the insight that can only come from having fought on the front lines, GOOD COP, BAD WAR is at once a narrative-driven true crime read and a fascinating story of a character under pressure.

    Couldn't put this book down.. I initially heard about it when the author, Neil Woods, was on the Distraction Pieces podcast and I was intrigued. Having now read it, there is no doubt in my mind that he and LEAP are right about everything. All drugs should be legalised and controlled. It's the only possible way to win the so-called, "war on drugs"..

    A truly eye opening account of today's society and its battle against drugs. After reading the statistics for change its incredulous that politicians and police forces still choose to ignore the facts. My thanks to "Woody" for being a true professional and very brave policeman and campaigner.
  • Great book, awesome guy!

    This book is eye-opening!! I was a bit put off by the pricey fee of £10 for an ebook but after reading the sample I needed to continue. It was money well spent but I still think the ebook should be priced better.
