Paperback. INSCRIBED AND SIGNED. A book describing the golden era in the metropolitan police force which no longer exists. Dick Kirby, that loose cannon of the Flying Squad, recounts with vigour his extraordinary adventures during the 1960s through to the 1990s in a style which gets straight to the point. His frank account of the way policing used to be takes us straight into the crime-ridden streets of Paris, Berlin, Amsterdam - and London. Whether he's carrying out arrests in a hostile East End pub or on a schizophrenic arsonist in a blazing building, the author tells it as it is. Trapping some of London's most vicious armed robbers and nabbing the thief who cracked the Flying Squad commander's safe, his adventures are described with his trademark black humour, in often shocking and always uncompromising language. When Kirby tells a villain, 'You're nicked, my son!' - he stays nicked! With law and order in London currently approaching meltdown, this book will be irresistible to the reader who longs for the days when crime and criminals were dealt with in Kirby's robust, no-nonsense manner. With Epilogue and Glossary. 300pp. p/back. From the library of former Det. Chief Supt. Leonard 'Nipper' Read. PRESENTATION COPY INSCRIBED AND SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR to 'Nipper' Read. Also includes typed and SIGNED letter from Dick Kirby to 'Nipper' Read (see image). F. with no creasing to covers.
