My only concerns in life were how to avoid a transfer to the Case Progression Unit - we do paperwork so real coppers don't have to - and finding a way to climb into the panties of the outrageously perky WPC Leslie May.

THATS THE WAY TO DO IT !!
One of those rare examples of something that lives up to the hype , Im not going to spoil it but this book is a fantastic read from start to finish . I can imagine a T.V series in the offing eventually ( ironically the lead role the Narrator would be perfect for ) ......
Plenty of humour and sarcasm , but serious when it needs to be.
The `Villain` was also perfectly thought out .
I urge anyone to take a plunge and buy this ......
