Yes, another police biography but this time one from an officer who rose through the ranks and specialised in Criminal Investigation. Thoroughly fascinating, and interesting to note that Les Brown was frustrated by the political correctness of those who tried to claim that the gangs were no longer a problem. Unfortunately, the tactics employed by Sir Percy Sillitoe in both Sheffield and Glasgow wouldn't be acceptable today - and the men of violence know it.

This was a strange book and I'm not really sure whether I enjoyed it! Some of the tales of the cases the author investigated were interesting, but throughout Mr Brown tried to project an image of a cavalier officer who did it "his way" and ignored the rules. He came across as arrogant and I suspect was not particularly popular with his colleagues. I have read crime stories penned by police officers before and would rank this pretty low in terms of my enjoyment of this type of writing.

Fine read but need a grammar check here and there.

Great read and I probably enjoyed it so much because it is so recent and I either knew or knew of, many of the characters in it.

Fantastic book if you are from Glasgow. Knew a few Glasgow cops and 2 were mentioned in the book which makes it all the more realistic. cant wait to read his next book a fascinating read into the minds of the Glasgow polis also what lengths they would go to to get a conviction whether it was the right man or not.
