"Snappy as Spillane, this book is packed with girls, guns and guts. The violent milieu explored by Newark is not South Side Chicago but the British Empire" The Independent "As fascinating and exciting as any crime novel, a truly gripping expose" -- Ian Knight, author of Zulu Rising "Tim Newark's vivid account of the exploits of law enforcement agents during the British Empire is captivating. He brings to life these talented international policemen - the drug-busting cops of the day - superbly. Agatha Christie meets The Godfather!" -- Andrew Roberts, author The Storm of War "History as it's meant to be: clear, unpretentious, exciting, authoritative and enthusiastic ... unquestionably one of my books of the year" City AM "Probing areas which historians have usually tactfully avoided, Newark has lifted the curtain on a hidden era of the British Empire" The Herald
