Straight from the Pig's Mouth: The Life and Crimes of a Kiwi Detective

Al Lester is best known for his tales of hunting and bush life. Few would know that Al was also a Detective Sergeant and this has been the foundation of this authentic collection of stories reflecting on 31 years as a Kiwi policeman. “This book takes you into the life of a New Zealand police detective. I tell it how it was and spare a few details so that you too can see the world through one policeman’s eyes. The stories contained in this book range from the humorous, strange and bizzarre to extreme violence and murders.” Full of stories, this is a book you will not be able to put down – the police have a tough job trying to keep criminals in check or turn chaos into order but what shone through with each story was the heart commitment to the job. Well, not so much a job but a full immersed life. I’m sure it would be an understatement to suggest that ‘you can’t switch off’ after your shift has ended. Whilst Al’s tales are set around serious harm and injury – he never loses sight of the lighter side of the job and brings his trademark humour to the pages. This is perfect for those that love highly readable non-fiction.
