Crossing the Line: Losing your Mind as an Undercover Cop by Christian Plowman
To catch criminals, Christian
has bought and sold drugs with taxpayers' money, been beaten up, arrested at gunpoint and barricaded in a pub by a gang of marauding gypsies - all in a day's work.
At one stage, he
was running almost a dozen mobile phones to keep track of his
different identities and had so many aliases that he
nearly forgot who he
life on the line for the job but was to find that being the 'best of the best' wasn't all it was cracked up to be.
The pressure became so intense that he
even contemplated suicide.
