I'm David. Thanks for stopping by and visiting my blog.
I'm a former Scotland Yard Investigator with twenty years' policing experience. I have particular specialisms in Counter Terrorist Operations and Organised Crime, with in-depth experience of working on the London 7/7 and 21/7 bombing investigations.
