Deadly Beat

By Richard Latham

‘You go to work, and you might be shot dead. You imagine being horribly maimed in a bomb blast. You come home and wonder if you’ll be shot at the front door. You go to bed with a revolver on the bedside cabinet. At times you wonder if this is really part of the UK.’

This was the world inhabited by Richard Latham during his service with the Royal Ulster Constabulary – a force that was an institution of contradictions and intrigue to many outside observers. Considered by some to be one of the finest police forces in the world, its officers were looked upon by others as evil storm-troopers of Unionism and the British Government.

This is the story of one officer, giving his insight into the grim reality of policing Ulster. The book exposes incidents of anti-English feeling and religious bias experienced by the author himself.
