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.
