A tale inspired by, and based upon, an account of a detective and an informant spanning twenty years.
You’ll need to live like a tramp for a while, eat on the hoof, fill the car’s glove compartment with chocolate bars and energy drinks, walk for miles, ride Tail End Charlie in a surveillance operation, end up abandoned and lost in the middle of nowhere, and meet someone in the most bizarre of situations who will tell you ‘what’s going to happen next’…

Based almost entirely in Cumbria, it’s a tale that takes you for a walk on the wild side, and might cause you to wonder how you can get out of the most dangerous situation you could ever imagine?

Who trusts who, why, when, and where, and for how long? Particularly when there are bad apples in both camps. Very bad apples!

Mayhem and mystery dominate a life-changing story that deals with victory and defeat in equal proportion. Buckle up and join Maguire’s surveillance squad to find out what really happens on the wild side of policing. It’s a simple journey from A to B. What could possibly go wrong?

Reader’s Review: Devastatingly brilliant…. The author captures the psychological impact of the relationship between the detective and a victim admirably. An excellent crime thriller. (Meg Johnston, Book Critic)
