'No Comment is essential reading for anyone interested in the questions being asked of the Met today' Katherine Faulkner 'A must-read for anyone who has ever wondered what happens after they've called 999 and a shocking indictment of a system not fit for purpose' Angela KirwinJess McDonald was a true crime junkie and Line of Duty sofa sleuth with a strong sense of justice. Under a year later, thanks to a controversial new initiative, she was a detective in the London Metropolitan Police Service.

The Met Police’s Direct Entry Detective scheme was aimed at turning people with no experience of the police into detectives. When it was launched, to tackle an unprecedented recruitment crisis, over 4,500 people, Jess included, applied.

But why, within just a year of qualifying, had the majority of Jess’ cohort resigned?No Comment is Jess’ candid, eye-opening and often shocking account, exploring the reality of being a detective in the Met and responsible for ‘keeping London safe for everyone’. In her incisive book she explores the challenges of life on the front line, dealing almost exclusively with serious crimes against women, and what that reveals about the Met Police now.
