Author of twelve books, Dick Kirby has also contributed to five anthologies, a dozen 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.
With a bare two years in the rank of detective constable, Kirby was selected for the prestigious Serious Crime Squad and spent the next five years catching international crooks from all over the world. ‘The Sweeney’ – the Yard’s élite Flying Squad - was his home for eight years where he dealt with the most formidable and violent armed robbers.
The Wrong Man:
