My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Biographical memoirs of a police detective of Victorian Manchester and surrounding area from the 1870s, 1880s and 1890s. For historical crime buffs, this is a good read of personal recollections. I enjoyed it, but the most interesting cases seemed to be at the start. Then the following chapters were good and informative, but not as interesting as the first stories. Still, I would recommend this as not everyone will be as fussy as me. It does make one wonder about the crime of the time. People that say things are dreadful today and it never happened years ago; are so very wrong.
