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 operators,constantly putting his life on the line so that the deadliest villains 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.When the Yard needed to crack one of the biggest international drugs rings,it was Blex that risked his life by going undercover to infiltrate the gang and seize £4 million worth of heroin.He pulled it off,but the danger did not end there: the gang took out a contract on his life and he was forced into hiding.This is a breathtaking story that will take you inside a world that few have access to.It is the story of a man so dedicated to his job that it became more important even than his own life,a man so professional that his reputation preceded him the world over.This is the story of the Gangbuster. Mike Fielder is a best-selling author and former Fleet Street crime reporter.He has covered major stories,from Lord Lucan to the multi-million pound Brinks-Mat robbery,to the murder of Rachel Nickell.He also covered the Gibraltar shootings of three IRA terrorists in 1988 and the horrific cannibal killings of Jeffrey Dahmer in Milwaukee,USA.He wrote the highly-acclaimed 'The Murder of Rachel Nickell',an in-depth study of the horrific murder on Wimbledon Common. Since April 2013,again in March 2015,and in this year too,the UK Post Office has altered it's Pricing in Proportion template,altering it's prices, weight allowances,dimensions and lowered it's qualifying compensation rates too!
