How and why does a police officer come to commit murder? When he does, what advantage does his professional expertise give him in planning or concealing his crime?

Ex-policewoman Joan Lock investigates and presents us with a fascinating and sometimes macabre collection of homicides in which the police officer became a suspect: the young constable who planned his wife's murder and even planted false clues to mislead his colleagues; the bizarre tale of the detective called in to investigate the murder he had committed; the country copper who waited in armed ambush for his sergeant and, perhaps the most chilling of all, the story of the ex- policeman whose cold-blooded execution of his old buddies is unparalleled in police history.
