So why only three stars? Well, the author does try to stay in character and write first person speech with what believe is a Geordie accent. It does make for difficult reading at times, and more than once I had to reread the sentence, or say it it out loud to understand it. Bearing in mind this book is also available on amazon.com, there is a chance it will more than confuse those not used to that dialect. At times, I felt the use of punctuation also made it difficult to read. Some commas seemed to be missing, but that is only a minor point and not one to unduly affect the enjoyment of the story.
The other aspect I felt, was the first 58% of the book seemed to just escapade after escapade, ands there wasn't much of a story. It was more a show case of some of the antics the sureveillance team got up to. Boys will be boys (and yes, many policeman stay in that mode....lol) but actually being occasional thieves? That I thought was not good. Show them as being lads for sure, but a line was crossed with the thefts and it did make me feel uncomfortable.
So, would I recommend this? Yes!! And especially to those either past or current constabulary members. The in jokes that only police would understand would have you howling. I would have given 4 stars if the above comments didn't apply but you know what - I am kinda tight with my allocation of stars on reviews so this is not a bad one by any means.
I think all police should write books about their experiences in the police force . Very entertaining and witty little books .that you can't put down. I can recommend them to anyone.
