In this gritty, true-crime-inspired collection of thematically linked short stories, you'll meet the dangerous men that are The Night Police, and listen as real-life urban policing is exposed from the inside. Written by two who have been there, The Night Police and its rogue trooper Max Golden take dark journeys from which no one emerges unscathed.
Rebel trooper Max Golden isn't content to spend his career as a humble, rule-following civil servant. Refusing to seek out danger isn't his style. And in the squalid, crime-ridden streets of Bristol City, he finds danger in spades. Undercover drug deals, murder and more keep him and the other members of The Night Police bonded tightly together in their self-made fraternity. Escape, when it's needed, is found in the dark and nondescript Solly's Tavern, where on a damp, cold evening in 1991, this down-at-the-heels saloon hosts four of The Night Police for a cathartic night of drinking. The plan is to let loose and forget for a few hours, but the swapping of ever more graphic tales leads to the unfolding of a stunning revelation.In true ripped-from-the-headlines fashion, the stories related in The Night Police may seem improbable, but are all based on true events. The Night Police provides truth and insight into the demons behind the badge.
