‘I’m interested in one thing and one thing only, and that’s catching bent coppers.’

Line of Duty: The Real Story is an astonishing exposé from inside the secret world of police corruption, starring a cast of twisted cops more chilling than all four H’s put together.

In Line of Duty: The Real Story, bestselling author Wensley Clarkson goes behind the headlines and the hit show to look back at the history of corruption, and the AC-12 units which sniff out and expose the crooked coppers among the good.

Referencing real-life historic and notable cases and people, from a range of sources and first-person interviews, this book tells the shocking truth behind the fiction, and its hard-hitting impact on real-life modern policing.

Get ready to go undercover, infiltrate the criminal underworld – and uncover the secretive lives of these corrupt guardians of the law.
