Brian Paddick’s autobiography Line of Fire is due out next month.
According to the publishers:
From early days on the beat, including searing experiences such as the Brixton riots, he went on to gain successive promotions despite what many in such a traditional organisation would have perceived as the ‘handicap’ of his sexuality. And yet he himself would argue it was another characteristic that led him to clash with superiors and ultimately made him conclude his career was over: his honesty. Full of colour, candour and cracking stories, this hugely compelling book provides the missing link between police memoir, true crime and celebrity autobiography.
