Publisher's Summary

Orphaned at 18, a naïve and solitary Chris Pritchard joins the Metropolitan Police in search of a family, friends and a regular income. He is posted to Stoke Newington police station in London’s tough East End. Despite barely concealed contempt for her hapless new charge, his experienced instructor, WPC Dawn Matthews, puppy walks him through a journey, which is regularly amusing, frequently sad and occasionally bizarre. You will not listen to a more accurate account of how London was policed a generation ago.

Great book, very believable!

This is a great book, some of the accents of the narrator are not the best but the storyline of the book is fantastic. It’s a shame the rest of the series of books have not been recorded as audiobooks as I would love to listen to the rest! Well Done Jonathan an amazing book.

Boys in blue

Predictable and not helped by narrator,
just wanted it to get going, too much emphasis on personal lives.

Soooo good!

Please, audible - you HAVE to get the other six in the series, and the sooner the better!! (I’ll even forgive the brilliant narrator his hilarious mispronunciation of “indictable”…)

More of the series on Audible would be good

An enjoyable listen with some good early 1980s procedure even if more happened to the main character on his Street Duties course than some 30 year careers.

I understand there are more books in the series and if put on Audible I would buy them

A 5* belter of a listen!

I thoroughly enjoyed this listen & relish the prospect of further instalments. There is a raw honesty on every page as you follow the protagonist’s journey from grass root naïvety to fully fledged “Bobbyhood.” The narrative is cleverly woven with a subtle balance of pathos & humour that gives our lead character a humility & candour that is all too compelling. A very candidly & perceptively crafted listen that will make for a very welcome addition to your audible library, as it has mine!

A cracking read, or rather, listen

I’m in my late eighties, so reading a physical book is getting challenging. I decided to try Audible. The experience was absolutely brilliant. Chose this book because of the fantastic reviews on Amazon and a friend’s recommendation. Follow Nostrils amazing journey from a boy to a man. Funny but bursting with pathos.
