More About the Author

"Guy Adams is either barking mad or a genius, I haven't decided. His truly fantastic debut is like being caught in a theme park with a killer clown - fun, adventure, the odd cream pie - and a sharp knife when you're not looking." - Mark Chadbourn

Guy Adams is the author of the best-selling Rules of Modern Policing: 1973 Edition, a spoof police manual 'written by' DCI Gene Hunt of Life On Mars. Published by Transworld, it has sold over 120,000 copies and led to two sequels: The Future of Modern Policing: 1981 Edition and The Wit and Wisdom of Gene Hunt. Guy has also written a two-volume series companion to the show, published by Simon & Schuster; a Torchwood novel, The House That Jack Built, for BBC Books; and The Case Notes of Sherlock Holmes, a fictional facsimile of a scrapbook kept by Doctor John Watson. This was published in 2009 by Carlton Books in association with the Estate of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the writer's birth. Guy is also the author of the fantasy novels The World House and its sequel Restoration, published by Angry Robot.

Format: Hardcover
Laugh out loud funny in places. Book for the blokes. Full of lots of non-PC stuff. Makes Clarkson look like David Blunkett but for all that it's a one joke book pretty much and expensive for only 128 pages.

Much as I enjoyed the sentiments and the blasting of all Political Correctness that blights modern society, and much as I love Gene Hunt,this book is too short and spreads the idea too thinly.

If you loved Life on Mars you will love Gene Hunt's guide to policing. Should be used by our police service as an essential handbook!!! REALLY
