Deception, double-cross, violence, and racism are all part of this tale of crime, football hooliganism, and lengths to which two men on opposite sides of the law will go to achieve their own aims
Appearances can be deceiving, as Paul Jarvis of the National Soccer Intelligence Unit is only too well aware. He knows that Billy Evans is no ordinary Cockney lad made good. He's also a thug, a villain, and a cop killer, Jarvis just hasn't been able to prove it—yet. So when Jarvis discovers that Evans is putting together a hooligan "Super Crew" to follow England's national soccer team to Italy, he feels sure he can finally put Evans behind bars, if only someone can infiltrate the group and get him the proof he needs. But nothing is ever that simple. The Crew believe Evans is just out for a full-on riot. Jarvis thinks he's trafficking drugs. But Billy Evans is always one step ahead. He has another plan. And it will be catastrophic for everyone concerned, except him.
From the Author: In 1997, Dougie Brimson received a phone call from the writer Lynda La Plante asking him if he would meet her to discuss a project.
During this meeting, she informed him that following on from the success of a pilot television drama called Stand And Deliver, her production company, LLP, had been commissioned to develop a TV series based around an undercover police unit. Her idea was to write one of the episodes about an operation targeted at a gang of hooligans who were becoming involved in criminal activities away from football. Dougie, as a recognised expert on the subject, was offered the chance to bring his expertise to bear on the plot. An offer he gladly accepted.
However, as discussions continued, it became clear that the initial ideas being developed were totally unrealistic and so Dougie offered to go away and develop a plot line on his own. After a few days, he returned with an outline for an episode entitled The Crew.
The response from the production team was astonishing and the idea was immediately accepted and submitted for acceptance by the ITV network controllers. However, although the series was commissioned, Dougies idea was rejected, officially on the basis of cost. Unofficially, the real reason was because the plot involved elements that were simply too controversial for network television.
Initially disappointed by this, Dougie received a huge boost when he was contacted by the head of development at LLP productions who told him that she was hugely impressed with his work and made him promise that one day, he would turn this idea into a book.
That book became the best-selling, The Crew.
