Recent reviews have commented

  • This is a treasure trove of a book – a wonderfully informative, self-mocking and addictive read, full of belly laughs. Utterly brilliant. (The Non-Fiction Book Club)
  • Ambulance Today heartily recommends this warm, witty, compassionate and down-right hilarious read by John Donoghue (Ambulance Today Magazine)
  • I have never had so much fun reading a book. I don’t know much about the Police – apart from the doom and gloom and bad press they seem to get on a daily basis. This look at the lighter side of their daily business – especially when written (and very well written if I may say so) by a “rank & file” officer was an absolute pleasure. I hope John Donoghue’s bosses are pleased at the way he managed to portray the human element of the police service whilst maintaining the dignity of all concerned. It is a real laugh out loud book (Amazon)
  • Fascinating and hilarious (International Police Association)

The book is available a paperback or ebook from Amazon, Waterstone’s or my own website (www.policecrime999.com) , where I can offer signed copies at the discounted rate of £5 (plus P&P) for officers and police staff …which would make ideal Christmas presents for their families.
