Deep Deception

The story of the spycop network, by the women who uncovered the shocking truth




Five women who were deceived and manipulated into long-term, sexual relationships by undercover police tell the shocking story of what happened to them

Groomed. Gaslighted. Ghosted.

They thought they'd found their soulmate. They had no idea he was spying on them.

These five motivated, independent women each thought they'd met their perfect partner - someone who shared their values, ambitions and goals.

But after a while, in some cases years later, the men started to behave strangely. They disappeared for weeks at a time, saying they needed to go away to clear their heads. Small details about their lives didn't quite fit. Then they vanished, leaving a note saying that the relationship was over.

These men were undercover police officers, who had targeted the women for their links to activist groups. They took the identities of dead children and carried fake passports and driving licences. They were all married, some with children. They had been working from a set of guidelines and were all using the same manipulative techniques.

This is the story of five women whose lives were stolen by state-sponsored spies, and who, one by one, uncovered the shocking truth.

Praise for Deep Deception

Deep Deception is one of the most important books that I've read

Samira Ahmed

These brave women exposed the systematic abuse of innocent people at the hands of the secret state that had been going on for decades. They are not victims, they are the victors who shed light on the way our secret police target non-violent campaigners
