Synopsis

Jim Smith grew up in the tenements of Govan, Glasgow, and dreamt of being a policeman as far back as he can remember. As he says, 'Thief-taking is in the blood.' Joining the police force at the age of twenty-one in 1962, he was posted to the East End of London where a career of steady selection began; one that would bring him into contact with the full range of criminals and criminal activity - including, ultimately, corruption within Scotland Yard itself. Here for the first time, he exposes the corrupt cabal in the Yard and relates how he was targeted by a small group of officers there who engineered his transfer out of that unit and subsequently strove to malignly influence his career. With a wealth of colourful and sometimes shocking stories, "Undaunted" traces both Jim's police days and his work as a private investigator in the UK and abroad.
