Overview

In different parts of London, three recruits prepare for their first day at the Metropolitan Police's training centre at Hendon. All three had succeeded in getting into the police in spite of weaknesses. But on their first day, the assistant commissioner announces that he wants them to join a team of undercover detectives. Their brief? To become criminals; to work their way up through whatever criminal organisations they can get access to, and to collate evidence against the criminals they come across. Their target? One of the world's biggest drug dealers, Den Donovan, alias 'Tango One' - number one on HM Customs and Excise's List of most wanted criminals.

Three years later all the recruits are getting close to their target. Too close, perhaps, to remember the rules . . .

The title threw me off, as had Stephen Leather's own name initally. Both seemed as penned for a new Aron Spelling tv series. But as I had been pleasantly surprized after reading my first Leather novel (The Chinaman) I was equally delighted when Tango One proved to be one of the most gripping thrillers I've read lately. I admire Stephen's abilty to expose even a villans personality as human with all the complexities attached. A great read once again from one of my favorite authors.
