'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
'Extraordinary' Mail on Sunday

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

A no-holds-barred account of life on the front line of policing, On the Line follows PC Alice Hearn throughout ten years in the Met, from rookie to constable. 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 means to look after it.
