Paul Derry's first book, Treacherous: How the RCMP allowed a Hell’s Angel to kill, is an inside look at his life as an undercover RCMP agent whose dangerous life landed him in the middle of a murder plot. It was a murder that he tried desperately to prevent but could not.

“Paul Derry paints a scary, scathing picture of the seamy world of organized crime, murder, snitches and betrayal – as only an insider can tell it. It is his version, told from the heart. You don’t have to believe every word he writes or agree with everything he says to shudder and shake your head in fear and amazement. A dark tale of the dark underbelly of our society.”
- Julian Sher, co-author of Angels of Death and The Road to Hell
“A very good read for anyone wanting to find out what it is like to go from a normal childhood to a life of crime, become an informant for the police and then get involved in the ultimate crime. I was involved in this investigation, but once I started to read this book, I had to read on. It grabbed my attention, and I had to see where it was going.”
- Det. Shane Halliday (retired), Halifax Regional Police, Major Crime Unit
Gary Dimmock wrote the foreword for Coastal West's new book, Treacherous. The following is an excerpt from that foreword:
This book, Derry's first, can stand as a manual of sorts and should be read by all police officers who handle agents—if not for its style, then for its brief tour inside the former agent's mind and for what it reveals about the relationship between the Mounties and an agent.
