Description of this Electronic Book

'This book takes you into the life of a New Zealand policeman. I tell it how it was and spare few details so that you too can see the world through one policeman's eyes. These stories range from humorous, strange and bizarre to extreme violence and murders. This is the lot of a copper and was the life I lived for 31 years.'

From his fledgling days as a junior policeman to being detective sergeant on high-profile cases, Christchurch cop Al Lester has many a story to tell as he reflects on a career on the thin blue line.

Al's a man who took policing seriously, always doing his level best to keep riff-raff in check and turn chaos into order. He never lost sight, however, of how to see the lighter side of the job, enjoying a laugh when need be, often at his own expense.

Welcome to the world of a Kiwi cop.
