Ever wondered what really happens behind the scenes in the police? What bizarre 999 calls are made to the emergency services? Why can wearing two pairs of socks make you a suspect? What is the link between police and vampires? Which Royal arrest never made news headlines? What covert sign do officers make when they no longer wish to talk to you?
After successful careers in both the military and business, John Donoghue realised that the higher you get in any organisation, the less fun you have. So, after handing back his expense account and company car, he joined the police in search of excitement and thrills… and discovered some surprising answers to these puzzling questions.
PC John Donoghue reveals all in his fascinating and hilarious true account of a year in the life of a front line response officer. Names and places have been changed to protect the guilty… but if you call the police, maybe, just maybe, it could be Police Constable John Donoghue turning up at your door. This book will appeal to anyone interested in crime and police, as well as fans of autobiographies and humour.
Book Reviews for Police, Crime & 999 – The True Story of a Front Line Officer:
“While reading it I cracked up with laughters and I definitely suggest not to read it beside someone who’s trying to sleep.”
“This humorous memoir written by a serving police officer of the Metropolitan Police (Scotland Yard) is at once insightful, irreverent, empathetic and raucous. Author John Donoghue manages to find humor even in the midst of horrific situations.”
“I never laughed out loud while reading until I found John Donoghue’s books!! If you’re needing a little holiday from life, this is the book for you! My only warning: Don’t drink hot beverages while reading this book…you’ll be spewing your cuppa everywhere and your dogs/cats won’t find it funny in the least!”
“I thoroughly enjoyed reading POLICE, CRIME & 999. The author had me giggling from the very beginning all the way through to the end.”
