The Rules of Modern Policing is brought to you by Gene Hunt, by way of DC Chris Skelton. Apparently, the higher ups wanted a policing text, or rules to live by, and who better to offer up words of wisdom than the CID's very own DCI Gene Hunt? He does, after all, get results, even if his methods are a little...informal. All the informal rules you could hope for are offered in this text, delivered with Hunt's signature gruffness and wit from the show. Plus, you get to see Chris navigate the quizzes Hunt lays down at the end of each chapter, along with his comments about the Guv and fellow officers. Fans of Life on Mars (or any police show set in the seventies, for that matter) will love this. There is some crude humor and mild nudity, but nothing you wouldn't see in the show. ( )
