Welcome to London. Population: 8.7 million. And it’s your job to keep them safe.

Girl on the Line - Alice Vinten

A unique insight to life on the streets of London as a female constable, Girl on the Line follows PC Alice Hearn throughout ten years in the Met, from rookie to officer. As she deals with violent criminals, heart-breaking domestic situations, petty crime, life, death, and everything in between, she builds up a portrait of a living, complex city, and what it truly means to look after it.

From routine procedurals to gripping foot chases to threats of terrorist attacks, this book covers all aspects of life in uniform, and how it really feels to wear the boots of a London copper.


‘Compelling … a portrait of the frontline which will fill you with admiration for those who, like Vinten, daily risk life and limb to keep us safe’ Sunday Express
