The Face of Evil: The True Story of the Serial Killer, Robert Black  


The Face of Evil by Robert Giles and myself as co-author, is about Robert Black, who was convicted of the kidnapping, sexual assault and murder of four young girls, and sentenced to life imprisonment with a minimum tariff of thirty-five years. He died in HMP Maghaberry, Northern Ireland, in January 2016, aged sixty-eight, unmourned, and entirely unrepentant of his repellent crimes.


Robert Black undoubtedly committed further murders for which he was never tried, both in this country and on the Continent.

The Laughing Policeman: Policing in Norfolk 1966-1981


In this first part autobiography I have included various funny and sometimes ‘black humour’ events which occurred during my personal journey through life and eventual police career and into retirement. The following ‘warts and all’ account interjected with my own thoughts illustrates how humour and laughter can get oneself through the harshness’s of life. On occasions to protect the guilty identifiable names have been omitted changed or abbreviated.

Yorkshire Ripper: The Secret Murders


The Yorkshire Rippers' reign of terror is well known, but many remain unaware of the full truth behind the brutal attacks that shocked the nation many years ago. Countless crucial details of murder, manipulation and miscarriages of justice have been hidden from the public, and the true extent of the Ripper's crimes still remains hidden to this day. This book exposes the twist in the tale of the most notorious British serial killer of the last hundred years.


Here is a note from the executive editor at John Blake Publishing:


“I finally got a chance to read most of Yorkshire Ripper: The Secret Murders, and found it engrossing, if extremely uncomfortable in places. It is a remarkable piece of work, and, subject to confirmation, we have scheduled it for publication in July next year, in a hardback edition. I know that you were slightly worried about the TS being over-length as against the word-count specified in the contract, but to be honest I think this may even be an advantage; certainly at no point did I feel that the text dragged, or that it had diverted into areas not wholly relevant to the book’s purpose.”


With best wishes
