This is the book that the Metropolitan Police tried to ban. It contains shocking letters between police and the chief suspect of this terrible crime, that will make you wonder if justice was really done...No one could have imagined that when beautiful young Rachel Nickell went for a walk on Wimbledon Common with her little son, it would have resulted in a wicked, sickening crime that appalled a nation; or that the police investigation that followed would cost over a million pounds. This is the inside story of that operation by the police detective that headed it up. It reveals information that has hitherto been withheld, and spectacularly prints letters from the police involved in the operation to the chief suspect that will astonish the reader and bring the details of this terrible case right back into the public eye...

He later moved to Tower Bridge, where he served for more than five years with the famous 'Sweeney' (The Flying Squad) where he says, 'I spent most of my time nicking armed robbers.' He was promoted to Detective Inspector in 1992. Rachel's case was one of the first he conducted in that role.
