Harvey's Law

Roger Harvey

This is the story of Roger Harvey – a man who dedicated his life to the police force, from February 1956 up until his retirement in August 1983 and the stories he has to tell about his time on the job.

At the centre of Harvey's Law is a man committed to and successful at his job, but that doesn't mean that he didn't know how to enjoy himself. Through Roger's world, we are offered an absorbing story that is at times moving, at times laugh out loud funny and which reflects the changes of himself, the country and the criminals at the end of the twentieth century.

A fascinating story told with pathos and humour, Harvey's Law is an enthralling memoir.
