As a professional police informer, Ron Farebrother is the first to reveal his undercover life in a book. His trade is treachery, but always, he says, for the public good. In the words of a Scotland Yard veteran, "Ron is better than any undercover cop, worth a hundred phone-taps, a thousand public appeals." In this book he tells all his trade secrets. This is the inside story of a prolific police informer who has worked for the last six years to bring dangerous criminals to justice, in his own way. It includes sex and scandal, featuring prominent household names in the media, politics and sport. The co-author, Martin Short, is the author of "The Kray's Lieutenant".
