An inside look into undercover operations: The Anatomy of A Sting

Editor | Non-fiction

Journalist Bhupen Patel has conducted many undercover operations over the course of his career. He has exposed all sorts of rackets, from mental asylums admitting patients without proper medical examinations to an illegal network of agents that arranges ‘temporary’ wives for Arab men looking to have a fling.

The Anatomy of A Sting recounts in detail some of his most dramatic and hard-hitting operations. It takes us through the entire process of a sting and reveals the hard work it takes to not just uncover a story that requires further discreet investigation but also gather enough evidence to bring it to the notice of the public and the authorities concerned.

Each account will offer a glimpse into the life of an investigative journalist and keep you on the edge of your seat.
