Crimetime: From undercover cop to international investigator - Mark Van Leewarden
"We think you're the type of joker who would suit working undercover. No controls, out there doing deals and drinking piss."
And with that the young beat cop shed what was left of his uniform and slid into the underworld of strippers, junkies, crooks and gangsters.
Code name: Emu
Mission: To take out hardened criminals
What could possibly go wrong?
This is the true story of a Kiwi cop who survives the dangerous double life of an undercover agent and goes on to become New Zealand's most successful international fraud investigator.
Along the way he is a key figure in a murder, weathers multiple contract hits, finds true love, gains a law degree, tangles with the Russian mafia, and continues to nail the bad guys, the con artists, the career criminals, wherever in the world he finds them. And he still keeps a shottie under the bed.
