4.0 out of 5 stars An insightful view into the Obscene Publication Unit, 5 Sept. 2011
This review is from: The Dirty Squad : The Inside Story of the Obscene Publications Branch (Paperback)
An interesting and insightful read into work carried out by the Obscene Publications Branch lead by Michael Hames. There is a lot of graphic detail in this book so not for anyone who is squirmish!

The books starts with a biography of the author, and this feels somewhat wooden and awkward at times, however bear with it, as the interesting stuff comes later. That's not to say I don't like biographies, but this felt a little rushed and forced at times and I was glad when the focus was on the crimes rather than his personal life.

Overall, any true life crime fan will enjoy this, and appreciate the hard work that has gone into solving the cases involved. Not quite a 5 star rating but this is due to the writing style and awkwardness of the author, the rest of the content is gripping.
