As a retired detective sergeant from the UK police I am able to draw on real life investigations and mold them manipulate them and then write about them using the fictionalized version to recreate the story told.

Jim Broadbent the central character is the theme for the series of books and will remain so. He is hard working hard drinking and a womanizer. His long suffering wife has long since divorced him His affair with colleague Jackie is in full flow, but he still has a roving eye for a shapely body and gets tempted to wander even from the exhausting commitment to Jackie.

It is his full time devotion to getting his man that drives Jim; he is a no nonsense Detective and sometimes devious in his investigative approach

Some of the content may be hard for some to read as it does graphically take the reader through the intimate examinations by the pathologist; then the painstaking interviews with the victims.

Then the interview of the suspects and the skilled interview techniques and blind alley’s that the suspect is taken then ambushed when there is nowhere to turn; Jim being elated seeing the shuffling feet and the ringing of the suspect’s hands as he squirms as the in depth searching questions are asked.

Growing up in the 50’s with little or none of the modern comforts of today’s modern world, my brother and sister were happy well as happy as you could be. I worked in various organizations including PO as a steward on cruise liners (I must write about that) then on the buildings picking bits of skills here and there and became a jack of all trades certainly master of none. Then joined the police stayed for 30 years mainly as a detective Sergeant dealing with all manner of criminal cases including child abuse rape cases and murder.
