A Policeman's lot is a varied one
on 17 June 2013
I had this book on my wish list for a while waiting for it to become available. I have others in the series too.
Matt is a PC with the Met police and gives an interesting insight into the variety of the work that comes his way. Anything and everything would sum it up.
Police jargon was probably a little over explained. Any of us who watched "The Bill" will be very familiar with most of the terms. Perhaps a brief description at the point of using the term may have helped more. The glossary was not easily accessible on the kindle edition.
The book gives Joe Public a fascinating insight into what a Police Officer actually does. The interesting, different, routine, sad, gory, boring, smelly, uplifting, downright scary lot, that is a Policeman's.
I hadn't read the blog as referred to in other reviews so this was all new to me.
An enjoyable read that bucks the trend in what, in my opinion, had become a tired genre.
