The controversial cop of "The Real Sweeney" is back - and he's taking no prisoners! "You're Nicked!" describes the golden era in the metropolitan police force which no longer exists. Dick Kirby, that loose cannon of the Flying Squad, recounts with vigour his extraordinary adventures during the 1960s through to the 1990s in a style which gets straight to the point. His frank account of the way policing used to be takes us straight into the crime-ridden streets of Paris, Berlin, Amsterdam - and London. Whether he's carrying out arrests in a hostile East End pub or on a schizophrenic arsonist in a blazing building, Kirby tells it as it is. Trapping some of London's most vicious armed robbers and nabbing the thief who cracked the Flying Squad commander's safe, his adventures are described with his trademark black humour, in often shocking and always uncompromising language. When Kirby tells a villain, 'You're nicked, my son!' - he stays nicked! With law and order in London currently approaching meltdown, this book will be irresistible to the reader who longs for the days when crime and criminals were dealt with in Kirby's robust, no-nonsense manner.

About the Author:

The sell-out success of Dick Kirby's Rough Justice - Memoirs of a Flying Squad Detective resulted in Constable & Robinson publishing The Real Sweeney, You're Nicked! and Villains. Described by an Old Bailey Judge as, 'one of the best detectives at Scotland Yard' and commended on 40 occasions for catching criminals, Kirby spent half of his 26 years Metropolitan Police service with the Serious Crime Squad and the elite Flying Squad. His no-nonsense views on law and order are the subject of radio and television interviews, and magazine and newspaper articles. An international member of the American Police Writers and the Crime Writers' Association, Dick Kirby lives with his family in a Suffolk village.

Review:

A page-turning experience to remember -- Joseph Wambaugh, author of The Choirboys Well written and entertaining -- Michael Winner Dick Kirby lifts the veil to expose a unique crime fighting unit. -- John O'Connor, Former Commander, Flying Squad
