“Metelsky has written a chilling new book that chronicles some of the most harrowing police undercover operations in Canadian and U.S. history. Entitled Undercover: Stories from the Underworld of Law Enforcement, Metelsky interviews some of the most legendary investigators who are pulling back the curtain on the dark side. A great read.”Toronto SUN crime writer Brad HUNTER

“So skillfully and articulately written, this book will transport the reader inside the undercover operations, allowing them to feel as if they were in that moment themselves. Undercover is an absolute fantastic read.”John MANS, retired Detective-Sergeant.
