Line of Duty - The Real Story of British Police Corruption, Paperback / softback Book

Line of Duty - The Real Story of British Police Corruption Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


Best-selling true crime writer Wensley Clarkson has encountered many of the UK's most corrupt police officers by infiltrating the underworld and the secretive lives of these corrupt guardians of the law. Line of Duty: The Real Story is an astonishing expose from inside the secret world of police corruption, starring a cast of twisted, dishonest cops more chilling than any of the fictional characters watched by vast audiences in the hit TV series.

These characters are synonymous with power, violence and even glamour, inhabiting a murky, amoral world leaving bloody chaos in their wake. So who are the people who are tasked with hunting these corrupt cops, and how has corruption invaded today's UK police forces?

In Line of Duty: The Real Story we go behind the contemporary headlines to look back at the history of corruption, and the anti-corruption units that were set up to sniff out the bent coppers among the good. Referencing real-life historic and notable cases and people, from a range of sources and first-person interviews, Line of Duty: The Real Story tells the truth behind the fiction, and its hard-hitting impact on real life modern policing.
