Author of eleven books, Dick Kirby has also contributed to five anthologies, ten other true crime books and contributes to magazines and national newspapers on a regular basis; he also appears on radio and television and provides talks for groups on his experiences in the Metropolitan Police in which he roundly condemns political correctness, vapid senior officers and ‘soft’ policing.
