‘And I thought I’d never see it: a TV presenter developing a deep and thoughtful interest in his subject. Diving beneath the surface where cameras and Autocue cannot follow, Nick Ross explores a theory of crime so simple and universal – and in its way obvious – that it’s almost shocking. He has turned my assumptions upside down.’ – Matthew Parris.
‘A fascinating and beautifully written corrective to the many myths and false legends surrounding the issues of crime and punishment, from fraud to paedophilia. Nick Ross’s book is an evidence-rich zone which our policy-makers – and we the citizens – would do well to spend some time in.’ – David Aaronovitch
‘Hold on to your hats: Nick Ross’s book on crime is actually not bad.’ – Alan White, Spectator
‘Brilliant. Incisive and full of insight, cutting through so much of the nonsense that is talked about crime. A voice of sanity amongst the politicking and posturing that comes with tackling crime.’ – Fiona Bruce
