Top 40 Book Club : Top 40 Book Club Reads 2014
NON-FICTION 39 BOOK CLUB READS Top 40 RUNNING WITH THE FIRM: MY DOUBLE LIFE AS AN UNDERCOVER HOOLIGAN James Bannon James Bannon was a young and ambitious policeman in 1980s London, who was handed the task of infiltrating a notorious gang of Millwall football hooligans called ‘The Bushwackers’, who delighted in orchestrating sickening violence and needless damage. Running with the Firm is the true stor y of this young PC’s undercover mission to penetrate the gang with the aim of bringing its ‘generals’ to justice. Bannon tells of some of the hardest thugs in football and about the secret – and, at times, almost comical – police operations that were meant to bring them down. Perhaps the hardest task of all, Bannon talks about the difficulty of getting out of the mob once he had burrowed in so deeply. In 1995, a film called I.D. was released. Few who saw the film believed the mindless events it por trayed could ever happen in the real world, but they did! The script was largely a true stor y, based on the events recounted in Running with the Firm. A disturbing but compelling read.
