From solving grisly killings and foiling would-be pirates to talking suicidal Londoners down from Tower Bridge, the Thames River Police have always had a tough and varied range of duties. This book explores the history of the force from its foundation in 1798 by Patrick Colquhoun and John Harriott to today's hi-tech operations. Its grisly catalogue of shipwrecks, smuggling, ritual murder and organized crime sheds valuable light on a little-known aspect of the life of the metropolis.
