Anthony Nott joined the Metropolitan Police in 1971, which was a very different world from that of today. He describes his early experiences in the Met, including the arrest of a man for murdering a prostitute in Kings Cross. He was present when a fellow police officer was almost stabbed to death and witnessed an act of police brutality when he interrupted the beating of a petty criminal in a cell by the CID. He transferred to the county force of Dorset in 1976 where, not long after his promotion to detective sergeant, he engaged in what would be a ten-year long investigation into the disappearance of Monica Taylor and the eventual conviction of her husband, Peter, for what was almost the perfect murder – Monica’s remains were never found. He then recounts a series of murder cases in which he was involved from the murder and decapitation of a woman in Bournemouth and the random killing of another, to the extremely violent killing of a gay man in Boscombe Gardens, Bournemouth, in which it took two years to bring the killers to justice. While a detective chief inspector in Bournemouth in 1994, the chance visit of a detective sergeant from Guernsey, who was investigating a life insurance fraud, led to the re-opening of a missing person enquiry from eight years earlier, and resulted in the conviction of Russell Causley for murder, despite his wife’s body never being recovered. This book provides an insight into the methodical and transparent way in which the police investigate complicated crimes from riots to the almost perfect murders.

From Ireland's leading crime journalist, Paul Williams, comes the definitive account of the case that gripped the nation. 'A book that had to be written' Ray D'Arcy, RTÉ Radio 1 For over a year, everyone assumed missing Dublin woman Elaine O'Hara had ended her own life. But after her remains were found, the police discovered that Elaine was in thrall to a man who had spent years grooming her to let him kill her. That man was Graham Dwyer, a married father of three and partner in a Dublin architecture practice. Almost the Perfect Murder details the exhaustive investigation - one of the most complex and chilling in Irish criminal justice history - that allowed gardaí to build a case against Dwyer. And it outlines the twists and turns that happened during the dramatic trial that followed. 'An example of doggedness and tenacious police work, which saw that justice was done, and seen to be done' Irish Independent 'Fascinating' Pat Kenny, Newstalk 'It is very rare for murder to involve the degree of calculation revealed in this case' Irish Times

A hearty meal is the one thing that brings the Carliles together – but over the course of a year, the various courses also pull them apart. Around the table sits an eight-year-old militant feminist, a pair of teenage accidental parents, and a cantankerous OAP. Fern’s husband needs an extra seat for his spectacular midlife crisis. Will Fern’s marriage be over by the time coffee is served? Perhaps she’ll give in and have the hot new dish that looks so tempting. Decisions, decisions . . .

Teacher Jane married Head master John Crocker in order to have a family. When she realizes she married a boring sterile man she seeks her form of justice and retribution by having affairs with fellow science teacher Paul Belmont, whose wife Meredith is a few months pregnant, and his best friend, prosecutor lawyer Vincent Myles. The men see it as a bit of a lark, Jane sees it as her only way to get a baby she desperately wants. The affair spins out of control, threatening the men's marriages and careers. When Jane blithely informs Paul she is pregnant he finally realizes what her game had been all along. He feels used and abused and threatened and when an unexpected opportunity to kill her with impunity crops up he acts on it without thinking of the morality or consequences. Johnny, a nerdy student, who constructed the fatal Leyden jar that killed Jane is sent to an institution but local gossip ties Paul and Vincent in with Jane and reckon the lad was treated unjustly. Paul thinks only he and Vincent knew Jane was pregnant, but his wife also knew and kept it a secret believing John Crocker to be the father. When Meredith is told John was sterile she realizes her husband murdered Jane. She confronts Paul but decides to stay with him for their two children's sake. Johnny sees a photo of Vincent and recognizes him as the man smooching with Jane an hour or so before she got killed and realizes he'd been set up . He stirs up trouble by sending Paul, Vincent and Det. Symonds an identical bin to the one used as the Leyden jar that killed Jane. With it he sends a collage of heavily pregnant Jane holding hands with Paul and Vincent, all blessed by the judge who arranged his incarceration. The wives take delivery of the bins, understand the awful meaning and mayhem results. Vincent has a fatal accident trying to evade justice whilst Paul's intended apology to Johnny is misconstrued and Johnny accidentally kills him but is able to cover it as suicide.
