Jörg  Diehl, Roman  Lehberger, Fidelius  Schmid - Undercover


Life among dealers, murderers and Islamists

He called himself Murat Cem. But in the files he's listed only as VP01. His current name is as secret as his address. The man who for a long time was perhaps the country's best and most important informant has always remained a phantom – until the Spiegel reporters Jörg Diehl, Roman Lehberger and Fidelius Schmid managed to meet him. They followed him for nearly a year, and have now written the incredible story of his life.

As an informant, Murat Cem not only helped to catch drug dealers and arms traders: He also solved murders, and became the German police's most important informer on the Islamist scene. Yet his warnings about Anis Amri went unheeded, and he was unable to prevent Amri's 2016 terrorist attack on a Berlin Christmas market. The police wanted to silence their informant, but now Murat Cem reveals all – it's time the world found out the truth.
