A Good Novella Which Gives You a Taste for More

Who the F*ck Am I? is a novella by Stephen Bentley (more about him later), which can only be described as borderline non-fiction crime-thriller genre.
Steve Regan is an undercover cop, who is trying to infiltrate a US-driven drug ring in late 70s Britain. He comes across Bill Morris, a Canadian international who is trying to establish this drug ring, and they immediately set off on a collision course. While Regan is the ultimate conflicted good boy,

I don't usually read crime fiction books, so I didn't know what to expect. After reading Who The F*ck Am I?, I can say that I was entertained and couldn't stop until the end! The character of Steve Regan as the laid-back undercover cop was perfectly described. I like to see images of characters in my mind as I'm reading and the author used vivid details for the people and action. The internal struggle of Regan as he's assigned a case involving a Bolivian cocaine cartel, and whether he should ...more

Kept me on my toes!

Stephen Bentley kept me my toes! Love the inside peek into the undercover world! Just when I convinced myself who the rat was, I was fooled! Enjoyed this thoroughly, you will too!

As I read this book, there were several times I considered putting it down. That would have been a mistake. Stephen Bentley accomplished his purpose for this work and then some of you will trust me and read this awesome novella to the end.

Pretty good story. I cant imagine what undercover agents go through. The book is interesting but I never really felt connected to the characters. Not that theres anything wrong with the book, just maybe not for me. ...more

I read the 2nd book Dilemma before this one. It didn't spoil the story reading them out of order!
As with Dilemma i loved this book and didn't want to put it down. Unfortunately work got in the way 😏.
I really like reading about Regan and his no nonsense in not giving a sh*t. He gets the job done!

Audible:A very good story.I like the main characters.Alan R. Gron was a terrific narrator.Looking forward to book 2!I was given this book by the narrator,author or publisher free for an honest review.

I felt this story started out slow. The slow just did not hold my attention. I did not connect with the characters. This was just a boring read for me. I do like that this was a real undercover operation. I like that this was a real undercover officer. The story was well written.

This isn't a review as such. It's my own book and I am not conceited or stupid enough to go reviewing books I have written.

I write this by way of background to assist any of you who may read this book or Book 2 in the series Dilemma.

The series is a spin-off from my real life encounters when I was a UK undercover cop. I wrote about those experiences in my memoir Undercover: Operation Julie - The Inside Story.

Whilst undercover I met two guys only known to me as 'Blue' and 'Bill.'

Does your undercover life become your real one?

Steve Regan is an undercover cop. He and his partner, Red, are sent to infiltrate a large drug cartel and they soon find out that all is not as it seems. With lots of twists and turns, this book is like nothing you have read before.

The author is an ex undercover agent and uses his experiences to write his books. This book is funny and has you wondering who the hell is who. I liken this book to the tv series The Professionals as the two main

Obviously a book about an undercover cop written by a former undercover cop already sounds interesting and though the author states that its not his story, you do wonder how much of him is in there. How much of his own experience. I actually hope its not part of his story because this one was tough even though it started a bit slow The characters are quite surprising, shocking even, well their behavior is at least. I cant imagine what real undercover cops go through and the lives they must ...more

This book pulled me in from the start and had me engrossed to the very end.
The authors experience and knowledge of being undercover trying to infiltrate a drug cartel completely shone through giving me shocking glimpses in to the underworld.
The characterisation was brilliant and really gave a sense of the atmosphere and place.
The tension level was just right urging me to keep reading on.
I enjoyed this book very much and will be keeping an eye on this author in the future.

Top notch must read book.

I found this to be a really engrossing book. Fast moving, with a believable plot and utterly believable characters. I have personal knowledge of some of the locations and they are accurately described. I've got the next two books in the series and will read them soon. Thank you Stephen

Enjoyed reading this book very much and you will too.
The writing is great. The story flows well. Interesting, intriguing, mysterious, lots of twists to keep you guessing. It made me wonder just how much of the author was actually in the words.
I definitely recommend this book.....

I liked that this was an undercover cop story written by an undercover cop. There were parts of the book that struggled to hold my attention, but the action scenes were well written and it had a few surprise "twists."
I won this off of a giveaway !

This book has something going for it in that an ex-undercover officer wrote about crime, so I think that is partly what made this very believable, even though I found some of their actions a bit on the shocking side. Pros the characters are original and engaging and the plot is well thought out. The world is described well and its easy to picture the scene as you read along. Cons this was a real slow starter. If you get through the first few chapters, you will be in for an engaging read. I ...more

Who the F*ck am I? centers on British undercover cop Steve Regan as he navigates the murky world of drugs in the 1970s. He's been under for so long he begins to question who he is and whether he should succumb to the temptations of easy money to help save his mother.

First off I need to say I love the title. Not only is it abrupt and in your face, it matches the speech and thought patterns of the main character Steve Regan. This promised to be a gritty, no holds barred, view of undercover work

It is a very slow start that doesnt really hold my attention, I do think that it is most likely very true to a true investigation they are slow and have to work from clues. It is a lot of setting around waiting in true life. For me the author just never pulled me in and lost me. There are so very good parts with some good characters however I didnt really connect with them and found the book lacking in the areas that pull me in. Do not let my thoughts turn you off from the book, some have read ...more

Steve Regan is the cop you'll love and hate all at once. The author pulls you into a world of drugs where money flows like water.

Join Regan as he sets out to make the UK a better place. But can he resist the multitude of temptations or will he get on board the drug train and live a life most only dream of?

I knew when I read the authors first book Undercover: Operation Julie although non-fiction that he could make the transition to writing fiction; I was right. He has an ease of language that lends itself to storytelling; he tells it as if he was there in the plot and why shouldnt he having been an undercover cop in the real world? Not that Steve Reagan is meant to be him, but having the experience means he can do whatever he wants with his fictional characters and they will always be believable. ...more

Other reviews state that the story starts out slow. That's a severe understatement. Not only does it start out slow but remains slow and tapers off leaving you wishing you hadn't bothered in the first place.

This is a testament to the fact someone can have a lot of anecdotes they've accumulated throughout life, but stringing them together does not a novel make.
