REVIEWS
-

A remarkable book. The story of the RUC is one that should be told. And it's told brilliantly.

- Talk Radio, London

Without the contribution of those in this book there would have been no peace process. They can be proud of what they did to defend democracy and the rule of law

- Lord Caine, former adviser to the Secrectary of State for Northern Ireland

It is the human element that makes this a powerful book, one that will not appeal to everyone, especially those who have no fondness for the police, but it a hard book to ignore as it is a candid reflection of some very bloody times in recent Northern Irish history, as told by real people. A Force Like No Other and A Force Like No Other: The Next Shift emphasise Colin Breen's professional and emotional attachment to his old force, and highlights his credentials as a very fine writer indeed.
