    Police, Lies and Alibis The True Story of a Front Line Officer When you find yourself recommending a book to the postman, it s a pretty good bet you ve enjoyed it Actually, I m considering it my public duty to recommend the last two books I ve read, Police, Crime 999 and Police, Lies Alibis The True Story of a Front Line Officer, to everyone I see If PC Donoghue can spread a little happiness, then so can I He s gone and done it again I m a bit late finding this gem of an author I possibly should have listened to the agent who recommended him Sharply witty and observant of that unpredictable beast, human nature or possibly totally predictable beast , the man is pure genius, delivering comedic anecdotes that have your chuckle muscles working in overdrive Apart from the fact that I ve melted my Lycra leggings, I hasten to add whilst reading in the sun, I ve found myself literally snorting with laughter and clamping my hand over my mouth for fear of the neighbours officially labelling me bonkers I ve also clamped my hand over my mouth in dread reading a certain chapter no spoilers which, though a stark reminder about people s propensity to ignore the danger of cars in hot weather, actually ends hilariously All I will say, is I could empathise with the policeman s lot Jack Russells do refuse to let go As with the first book I read, there are po...

    Thank you to the author for a complimentary copy of this title in exchange for an honest review This book wasn t quite as humourous as the first, which came as a little bit of a surprise to me but it was still a welcome surprise The stories and anecdotes in the first book were clearly collected by the author for their comedy value but it s a pretty obvious truth that police work isn t all fun and games, this book is a collection of some of the serious aspects of the job.Don t be discouraged though if you re a fan of the funny this book is still packed with some truly awful in a good way dad jokes and includes an incident involving the brutal assault of giant Yoda and Darth Maul garden ornaments.What it does highlight though is the reality of what a customer complaint against an officer can do to their career, and let s face it most people aren t too happy about being arrested, especially if they re guilty This is the kind of thing that decent people should know about, to appreciate the shit that the poor fuzz deal with on a daily basis and how one scumbag calling foul can end an officer s career.Donoghue s writing style has developed nicely since his debut novel and has thrown in some serious content about what being a police officer is like in a quiet area, his tone is very easy going and feels like you re listening in on a chat between friends His caricatures of his...

    As an advocate of John s previous book, I am pleased to say John has not let his readers down with his third book Once again, John Donoghue has taken us behind the scenes of Policing, resulting in of those LAUGH OUT LOUD moments of his previous book, Police,Crime 999 From the beginning of the book right to the end, you are entertained, as the sometimes hapless PC Donoghue gets to grips with the daily chores of Policing, ranging from shop thefts, stealing of dustbins, as well as coming across some bizarre laws and then throw in a possible murder Allowing you to see a side of policing that is rarely reported, as well as some of the characters Officers sometimes have to deal with yes these people do exist In this book, John also introduces the reader into the darker and at times dangerous side of Policing, at the same time demonstrating how humour can be found even in the most frightening of times Also, how one good deed can go so awry, that an Officers job is on the line John demonstrates that Police Officers in the line of duty can be unsung heroes on day to day basics, while...

    I already loved Police, Crime and 999 but Police, Lies and Alibis is even better.A little less about the clich s and a lot insights I really like how John Donoghue found his very own writing style It is recognisable and it felt like paying an old friend a visit after you haven t been in touch for a while.Again he finds a way to present grim facts and statistics that make a good amount of his everyday work and stories told with an unbeatable humour that keeps the balance between the tragic behind the numbers and the stories we all know so well from the news and the admittedly hilarious madness of the other side of the coin.I laughed a lot and I had a couple of moments in which I had to put the book aside to process what I had just been reading there Don t worry, no gory details of any kind, but some passages that made me feel a bit uneasy with the way the world sometimes works.Under the bott...

    Almost as hilarious as Police, Crime 999 but perhaps a little serious and a great insight into some of the highly unpleasant and thankless tasks dealt with by our front line police officers, I d recommend Police, Lies Alibis to anybody with a ...

    Just like his previous book Police, Crime and 999 the author tells some funny tales of life as a police officer.There are lots of scrapes he gets into and some very embarrassing moments.Really recommend reading John s books.
