Keeping the streets of Glasgow safe has never been an easy task. From the pre-war razor gangs through to the drug lords of recent times, the city streets have never been free from peril. But without the men who relentlessly fought crime year after year, the citizens of Glasgow would have been in far greater danger. The Real Taggarts examines the lives of Glasgow's post-war crimebusters and is based on exhaustive research which has uncovered new and previously unpublished material, including the personal papers of key police officers which have never before been in the public domain. Many of these officers became legends in the Force: Joe Beattie, who worked on the Bible John investigation; Tom Goodall, Glasgow's Maigret, who battled against an unprecedented rise in violent crime in the city; Gilbert McIlwrick, the 'Quiet Man of the Force', who had to deal with five murders and a huge bank robbery in a single week. The Real Taggarts is a fascinating insight into the men whose job it was to keep Glasgow safe and the remarkable contribution they made, much of which has never before been revealed.
