9781472108326: Beyond the Call of Duty

A lone policewoman disarms a knife-wielding schizophrenic; two officers drag a woman from a railway line seconds before an express train roars past; an undercover cop clings onto the bonnet of a drug-dealer's car as it speeds through a busy town centre. These are just some of the ways Britain's police officers are daily called upon to demonstrate bravery in the line of duty when even the most routine call can turn into a life-or-death situation and split-second judgements can make all the difference.

Review:

After reading the book I can honestly say what a privilege and honour it is to have been able to contribute to it. The way each story is written really captured the moment and I couldn't help but feel humbled. It really is a fantastic book. -- Ryan Laking Very inspirational and shows police officers for what they are - normal people, people who can get hurt. A police officer goes to work every day not knowing what he/she will face. Their bravery should NEVER be underestimated. Fantastically written, you feel like you know the officers - such is the writing style. I like how hard hitting the very real fears/emotions/mindset of the officers involved has been portrayed. Bravo to all those involved. -- C. A. Hobson `I am astounded by the way you told our tale. Absolutely brilliant.' -- Ian Worthington, North Midlands Air Support
