Mastering the Wolf is a history of policing and law enforcement over the last 40-plus years in the UK and beyond.
In an engaging, gritty, and authentically moving memoir, with a career in public service that spans the Army, Northern Ireland, the effect and fall out of the Miners’ Strike, a public order unit, undercover policing, domestic violence, child abuse and protection, management and a police adviser in post war Iraq, this book is a roller-coaster of a ride.
Fast-paced and packed with action and humour, Colin details the fear, loss, pain, sadness, and disappointment, amidst the pride, gratitude and overwhelming joy of the friendship and camaraderie felt from colleagues and the deep, unconditional love he feels for his children. These are the words of a very compassionate man who has pursued in what he believes. Mastering the Wolf is a highly personal story of public service that will resonate with many.
