    Crossing the Line

    As a society, we are captivated by policing; we watch police procedurals and fly-on-the-wall documentaries and absorb the headlines on the rolling news. Yet how much do we really know about the world that policing inhabits and reveals? In his eye-opening new book, John Sutherland invites us to step behind the cordon tape and bear witness to the things that he has seen in his 25 years of service. Tackling ten of the biggest challenges facing society today – from alcohol abuse, drug addiction and domestic violence to knife crime, terrorism and sexual offences – we are introduced to people who have been pushed to the limits. In doing so, we gain a clearer sense of what needs to be done in order to make the cities we live in better places for us all to live. Deeply revealing, courageous and moving, this is a book that will change what you see when you walk down the street.

    The Prosecutor

    Nazir Afzal knows a thing or two about justice. As a Chief Prosecutor, it was his job to make sure the most complex, violent and harrowing crimes made it to court, and that their perpetrators were convicted. From the Rochdale sex ring to the earliest prosecutions for honour killing and modern slavery, Nazir was at the forefront of the British legal system for decades. But his story begins in Birmingham, in the sixties, as a young boy facing racist violence and the tragic death of a young family member – and it’s this that sets him on the path to his groundbreaking career, and which enables him to help communities that the conventional justice system ignores, giving a voice to the voiceless. A memoir of struggle and survival as well as crime and punishment, ‘The Prosecutor’ is both a searing insight into the justice system and a powerful story of one man’s pursuit of the truth.
