Review by

An astonishing insight into the life of the modern copper. Whilst it does seem a bit repetitive in its themes, repetitiveness seems to be the order of the day in the police force. Another job I definitely wouldn't fancy doing after reading this!It's very very funny - my favourite bit was the checklist of things to do before having the police round. Also it's wonderfully un-PC (pun not intentional) with its comments about plasma screen TVs in the corners of council house living rooms, and the reference to overheating in such rooms (the sort of fuggy heat you 'only get when nobody is paying the heating bill'. Brilliant!)
