Sweet and Sour

Sweet and Sour

The working world of police, judges, gaolers and occasional villains

By Rod Settle

CONTENTS

Professionals working in the criminal justice system – be they police or social workers, solicitors or barristers, magistrates or judges, gaolers or god-botherers – share a life of sordid tedium punctuated by moments of exposure to human tragedy in a stark, face-to-face manner. Sweet and Sour is a collection of short stories representing such sharing of experiences with colleagues.
