Journal Entry 2 by futurecat from Christchurch, Canterbury New Zealand on Sunday, September 06, 2009
The sequel to The Laughing Policeman, detailing Wood's short-lived career in the police.

Having spent a lot of time around the police in my younger days (no, not as a criminal - my mother worked for them), much of what he describes was familiar to me, so it was interesting to look back into that world again.

What was really interesting though was his description of the 1981 Springbok tour, and its effect on NZ. Quite different seeing it from the other side of the lines, compared to the way the media usually present it. (Reading the chapters about the tour just before bed was probably a bad move, in retrospect - I had some pretty horrible dreams that night!)
