Recollections and memories from one of Cheshire Police's most decorated detective police officers. "The book is written as a recollection of my memories and took a number of years to complete. The vast majority of the text was written while on recuperation duties at Auchterarder Police Treatment Centre (PTC) in Scotland, recovering from an Achilles heel and shoulder injury. 10% of the profits from this book will therefore be donated to the PTC in recognition of their fantastic involvement in treating police officers. Recalling funny memories alongside serious criminal investigations over a 30 year career, this story follows Neil's career path through uniform, detective, surveillance and undercover duties in Cheshire, the UK and worldwide, including an appearance on the nationwide TV program 'CrimeWatch'..."

    Excellent read from cover to cover. Great to see the honesty and accuracy of the chapters. A great account from a great bobby who is missed at work daily.

    This was a great read about the highs and lows of Neil's career. It was well written and I found myself laughing out loud in parts. Especially liked the picture of me eating Singapore noodles-classy!! I will be recommending this book as once I started it I couldn't put it down. You did yourself proud but I think there should have been some mention ( and photographic evidence) of your retirement do!!

    Brilliant and funny in parts, showing an honest account of a policeman working the streets of Runcorn and Widnes, Cheshire. True commitment and dedication shines through. Police don't get the recognition sometimes for the dangers they have to put themselves in, for the sake of the public. Thanks for a great read, but mostly thanks for your dedication and commitment to making our communities safer places to live in. Definitely recommending this to friends and family.

    Excellent read, read it from cover to cover in one afternoon, laughed out loud at the wit and humour, a true story of an excellent police officer wanting to better the community. Highly recommendable read.

    Absolutely fantastic. I read it cover to cover in one sitting. I couldn't put it down. Really entertaining, full of so many brilliant tales of a committed guy doing everything he could to improve the areas he worked in whilst also enjoying life!
