Promotional Information

From his bruising first experience of giving witness to securing Britain's first ever double-supergrass, Dick Kirby describes with a strong dose of humour the trials and tribulations of over 20 years spent in the Serious Crime Squad and Flying Squad.

About the Author

Dick Kirby received a secondary school education which was so utterly undistinguished that, when he left school at the age of fourteen, without a single academic qualification to his name, both pupil and teachers breathed a collective sigh of relief. On joining the Metropolitan Police, he gained rapid promotion to the Serious Crime Squad and thence the elite Flying Squad. Of 40 commendations received, over half were for the arrest of armed robbers. He was described 'a good man to have in an explosive situation', and now lives in Suffolk tending his garden.


Those who haven't sampled the terrific true tales penned by this retired detective, are in for a page-turning experience to remember. - Joseph Wambaugh, author of The ChoirboysDick Kirby gives us a unique insight into the workings of the Flying Squad as it used to be. - John O'Connor, former Flying Squad Commander
