A former member of London’s MP Flying Squad pays tribute to his fellow officers in a gripping and emotional true crime chronicle of duty and sacrifice. Dick Kirby of London’s Serious Crime Squad shares ten stories of courage spanning fifty years of crime enforcement in the Metropolitan Police. In honoring the selfless men and women who gave their lives, Kirby sheds light on the ever-present dangers of street patrol—from confrontations at public protests to being caught in the middle of a gang war to answering a seemingly run-of-the-mill call at a quiet residence. Here are the true stories of extraordinary lives cut short: WPC Yvonne Fletcher gunned-down while policing a demonstration at the Libyan Embassy; Detective Sergeant Ray Purdy, taken out while arresting a common blackmailer; PC Ray Summers, an officer with less than two years’ service, stabbed to death as he broke up a gang fight; a three-man crew in an unmarked ‘Q’ car wiped out by gunmen; PC Nat Edgar, shot by a burglar; PC Patrick Dunne, a home-beat officer murdered while investigating a domestic dispute; the horrific bombing of Herrods department store which cost three brave police officers their lives; and the murder of PC Stephen Tibble, which sparked investigations into the IRA. Drawing deeply on his knowledge and contacts within and outside the Metropolitan Police, Kirby explores the lives and deaths of these officers, and the trauma endured by the colleagues and loved ones they left behind. “I am delighted that Dick Kirby has written this book. Such heroes should be remembered.” —Michael Winner, director of Death Wish, from the Forward

Downton Abbey Meets Agatha Christie in This Sparkling Mystery Drew Farthering loves a good mystery, although he generally expects to find it in the pages of a novel, not on the grounds of his country estate. When a weekend party at Farthering Place is ruined by murder and the police seem flummoxed, Drew decides to look into the crime himself. With the help of his best friend, Nick Dennison, an avid mystery reader, and Madeline Parker, a beautiful and whip-smart American debutante staying as a guest, the three try to solve the mystery as a lark, using the methods from their favorite novels. Soon, financial irregularities at Drew's stepfather's company come to light and it's clear that all who remain at Farthering Place could be in danger. Trying hard to remain one step ahead of the killer--and trying harder to impress Madeline--Drew must decide how far to take this game.

“A superb account of the rise of modern broadcasting.” —Financial Times When the pirate operator Oliver Smedley shot and killed his rival Reg Calvert in Smedley’s country cottage on June 21, 1966, it was a turning point for the outlaw radio stations dotting the coastal waters of England. Situated on ships and offshore forts like Shivering Sands, these stations blasted away at the high-minded BBC’s broadcast monopoly with the new beats of the Stones and DJs like Screaming Lord Sutch. For free-market ideologues like Smedley, the pirate stations were entrepreneurial efforts to undermine the growing British welfare state as embodied by the BBC. The worlds of high table and underground collide in this riveting history.

The Squad that investigated The Great Train Robbery. "The Old Grey Fox" or "One Day Tommy" (Detective Chief Superintendent Tommy Butler) selected six of the best officers on the elite Metropolitan Police Flying Squad to investigate the Crime of the Century, but whilst many books have been written by and about every criminal arrested for this crime, NONE have been written about the detectives who traced and tracked them. Tommy Butler delayed his retirement to complete the job, but died a few months after he retired at 57 years of age, the only detective of his rank in the late 1950s and 1960s not to publish an autobiography.??This book provides a detailed account of the men tasked with tracking down the most notorious thieves in British history. It examines the investigation in detail and asks how it would contrast with the methods used today should a similar incident take place.??Geoff Platt examines what happened to these men after the investigation was closed and the effect it had on both their personal and professional lives.
