Gritty true crime expose of the UK’s biggest ever drugs bust!

Drug squad detective Martyn Pritchard reveals the inside story of living undercover as a drug-dealing hippy for more than 5 years during the 1970s.

Martyn and Eddie Laxton, the journalist chasing the big story, found themselves at the centre of ‘Operation Julie’, and together became entrenched in the biggest drugs scandal Britain has ever known.

This is a truly unique real crime story revealing the secrets, perils and rigours of living and working undercover in the 70s drugs scene, the massive LSD drugs bust, the launch of the Reading Music Festival and the capture of Howard 'Mr Nice' Marks.
