Wasting Police Time: The Crazy World of the War on Crime
Wasting Police Time: The Crazy World of the War on Crime
Price: 1.75

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting, but not gripping., 7 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Being an ex police officer myself, I found this quite enjoyable, & there were many instances throughout the book that I could identify with. However, it does not fall into the category of 'I couldn't put it down', & I read it mostly interspersed with another book I was reading.

Brilliant movie, I would have given it five stars were it not for the dreadful music during the opening titles & during the film. It didn't spoil my enjoyment though, & I suppose it was typical for the era in which it was made.

1.0 out of 5 stars Utter waste of money., 7 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I read some reviews of this book, & most people rated it fairly highly. For the life of me I cannot see why! I thought it was poorly written, particularly when investigating a sudden death, a coroner's verdict was suicide, when the deceased clearly showed signs of having been tortured. Perhaps that would have been explained further into the book, but I was so bored with it that I gave it up as a bad job, & have now deleted it from my Kindle.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Content, 25 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This DVD was excellent, but I have to say that the quality of the imagery was less so. The distance shots in particular were of low quality, it seemed to me as if I was watching a DVD made about ten years ago. Certainly, it was not as good as the DVD of City's last title winning season. In this day & age, I would expect much higher resolution than I got.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not Bad, 9 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having bought a new television, I found that, in common with most manufacturers these days, it only had one scart socket. I have two appliances that need scart connection, so I initially bought a cheaper scart splitter which proved to be a waste of money, as the picture on both appliances was then badly affected. I then purchased this item, & found it to be much better. In all honesty, picture quality is still affected, but not to any great degree.

I absolutely loved his book, I would give it ten stars if available. I thoroughly recommend it to anyone who likes a gripping thriller.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 23 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I connected the two devices to the splitter, all seemed well. However, I noticed that the picture was very dark. I viewed the TV via Freeview & Sky, the picture was fine. I disconnected the splitter & plugged the one device into the scart socket, & it was fine again. The splitter didn't seem to be man enough to handle to two devices. There seems little point in returning the splitter, as I would have to pay postage, so I've just put it down to experience. Rubbish.

This review is from: Random (Kindle Edition)
I found this book fascinating. Without giving too much away, it was one of those stories where you really wonder how it will end. When it does end, you come to realize that really it's the only way that it could. I thoroughly recommend this book, but not if you are squeamish.

I really enjoyed this, it makes you re-live the ups & downs of the whole season, but especially 'that day'. I would thoroughly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb., 10 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book gives a very real insight into the life of Bert Trautmann, from his early life in post WW1 Germany, through until just before his sad passing earlier this year. I would thoroughly recommend it as a very interesting read.
