Softcover. He's cynical, he's abrasive, but he's fair. Here is the author's frank account of his days in the Flying Squad and the Serious Crime Squad where he treated criminals the only way they understood. His language is often shocking, his methods unorthodox. The author unveils the sleaze of the underworld: meeting informants in seedy cafes, smashing international gangs, carrying out dawn raids, appearing at high profile trials at the Old Bailey. He won some, he lost some. Kirby is funny. He's also scathing about many members of the legal profession, social workers, lazy and corrupt fellow officers, and the scum of the criminal fraternity. But he's on the side of the decent men and women of London, and to protect them, as he explains, often required dealing with hardened criminals on their own terms. With Glossary and conclusion. 192pp. trade size softcover. F. with no creasing to covers.
