Murder, Mayhem and Mischief
by Graham Bell

Police Ten 7 on TV2 brought Graham Bell into the living rooms of thousands of New Zealanders as he sought the help of ordinary New Zealanders to solve crime. Even before he retired from the police and took on the role as presenter for Police Ten 7 he was a regular on television first as media liaison officer for the New Zealand Police, and later in his career as a detective inspector working on some of the most sensational cases of the past two decades.

In this a very personal account of his career and the men and women around him in the ranks of the New Zealand Police, he reveals the day-to-day lives of everyday police men and women, the frustrations and satisfactions of the job. The villains and the low life’s that the police protect society from. The inter-departmental tensions, police hierarchy and working with the good and bad cops.

This is an honest no-nonsense account of every day policing as Graham Bell gives his views and takes us behind the scenes into the police investigations of some of the high profile cases that have gripped the media and the country.

A policemen’s lot my not always be a happy one but there is humour as well as tragedy and the quirks of the job and vulnerabilities of the author, suspects and others are exposed in this compelling first hand account of life in the New Zealand Police.
