This review is from: Confessions of a Police Constable (The Confessions Series) (Kindle Edition)
I have read many books from the police sector and have to say I found this one the most gripping. His stories were very well told and the underlying love he has for his job and fellow officers is very clear. It was nice to read a book that didn't delight in rubbing your nose in the grime of crime. I laughed out loud many times and found it so touching in the next chapter.
I also liked the fact that the book wasn't used as a preaching platform to bemoan the politics and policies that have made the service a paperwork producing nightmare. His wry and witty comments get the message across in a subtle manner.
His patience with some of the criminals in these stories is astonishing, and I am sure if I were in his shoes I know I wouldn't be as tolerant. The level of abuse they have to take at times is staggering.
I enjoyed many parts of this book and read some chapters over again after finishing them!
I would read any other books that he wrote as his writing really suited the theme of the book and if I wasn't already happy in my job with the NHS then I might think of a career change!! Well apart from the fact that I might end up in a spot of bother for my treatment of some of the shady characters in this book!
A follow up book would be great!
