Brilliant!! I loved this book about the real life of a woman Police Officer. I could not put it down and didnt want to finish it. I hope she rights another. She is VERY sarcastic. I laughed the whole way through it. I loved her view on Community Police officers (who cant arrest or investigate), saying that "i forsee a glorious age whereby PCSO's gradually learn to do everything done currently by police officers.

The last of my triumvirate of light-weight holiday policiers, and diminishing returns has well and truly set in. Nothing really wrong with it, and definitely amusing/illuminating (and therefore depressing about the state of criminal justice in the UK) in parts, but 3 in a week was definitely too many!

Having read this and been very amused in the main I am in despair if this is really what it is like in the Police and the picture of our 'justice' system. Please tell me this is radically exaggerated for comic effect......

Funny in places this book gives a jaw droppingly accurate portrayal of how the police swim through paperwork and red tape on a daily basis
