Line of Duty – The Real Story

£8.99

Ally D’Apliese is about to compete in one of the world’s most perilous yacht races, when she hears the news of her adoptive father’s sudden, mysterious death. Rushing back to meet her five sisters at their family home, she discovers that her father – an elusive billionaire affectionately known to his daughters as Pa Salt – has left each of them a tantalizing clue to their true heritage.

Ally has also recently embarked on a deeply passionate love affair that will change her destiny forever. But with her life now turned upside down, Ally decides to leave the open seas and follow the trail that her father left her, which leads her to the icy beauty of Norway . . .

There, Ally begins to discover her roots – and how her story is inextricably bound to that of a young unknown singer, Anna Landvik, who lived there over a hundred years before, and sang in the first performance of Grieg’s iconic music set to Ibsen’s play ‘Peer Gynt’. As Ally learns more about Anna, she also begins to question who her father, Pa Salt, really was.

And why is the seventh sister missing?

Description

Best-selling true crime writer Wensley Clarkson has encountered many of the UK’s most corrupt police officers by infiltrating the underworld and the secretive lives of these corrupt guardians of the law. Line of Duty: The Real Story is an astonishing expose from inside the secret world of police corruption, starring a cast of twisted, dishonest cops more chilling than any of the fictional characters watched by vast audiences in the hit TV series. These characters are synonymous with power, violence and even glamour, inhabiting a murky, amoral world leaving bloody chaos in their wake.

So who are the people who are tasked with hunting these corrupt cops, and how has corruption invaded today’s UK police forces? In Line of Duty: The Real Story we go behind the contemporary headlines to look back at the history of corruption, and the anti-corruption units that were set up to sniff out the bent coppers among the good. Referencing real-life historic and notable cases and people, from a range of sources and first-person interviews, Line of Duty: The Real Story tells the truth behind the fiction, and its hard-hitting impact on real life modern policing.
