Undercover is a remarkable true story about the Australian underworld. Fake identities. Drugs. Cash. Danger. All in a day's work for a Drug Squad cop Made infamous by tV series Underbelly and Underbelly: A tale of two Cities, the Australian underworld has been exposed. UNDERCOVER is the story of an undercover detective working to infiltrate the Australian drug scene. Damian Marrett's penetrating yet darkly comic insights and astonishing candour provides the real story behind bringing down the Griffith Mafia. After reluctantly joining the Victorian Police in 1986, Damian Marrett was handpicked four years later to work in a covert capacity for the Drug Squad. Marrett was so exceptionally talented that he was responsible for some of the biggest drug busts in Australian law enforcement history. the young detective is famously known for infiltrating the seemingly impenetrable Griffith Mafia, in an operation codenamed Afghan which is still regarded as Australia's most complex covert sting operation. Compelled to stay in character for long periods of time over the nine month operation, Marrett became the knockabout drug dealer Ben Gleeson. Operation Afghan concluded in a tense stand-off in country NSW where ten mafia gangsters were arrested on 36 separate drugs and firearms charges. the trial followed and eight were sentenced to 41 years of combined jail time. true crime addicts will find Marrett's account of his six years as an undercover agent organising dangerous stings in the criminal underworld a must-read.
