Undercover, Paul Lewis and Rob Evans

The gripping stories of a group of police spies – written by the award-winning investigative journalists who exposed the Mark Kennedy scandal – and the uncovering of forty years of state espionage.

The job of the clandestine unit was to monitor British ‘subversives’ – environmental activists, anti-racist groups, animal rights campaigners. It was an undercover operation so secret that some of our most senior police officers had no idea it existed.

Police stole the identities of dead people to create fake passports, driving licenses and bank accounts. They then went deep undercover, inventing whole new lives so they could live, for years, incognito among the people they were spying on. They used sex, intimate relationships and drugs to build their credibility. They betrayed friends, deceived lovers, even fathered children. And their operations continue today.

Undercover reveals the truth about secret police operations – the emotional turmoil, the psychological challenges and the human cost of a lifetime of deception – and asks whether such tactics can ever be justified.
