He has an impeccable record and detection and clear up rate second to none.He retires north to Cheshire but he is recalled to duty from, time to time to assist the local provincial police forces with complicated cases.He is assisted by Inspector Scott-Ling who being a serving officer she has the necessary powers of arrest, search and entry.She joined the police service on leaving university on the direct entry senior officer scheme. Having no practical experience she was ridiculed by long serving officers.There is some animosity at Jack being called in and so he works not from the police station but from the police museum, an old police station retained in its original décor and fittings.The duo have from time to time investigated a number of serious cases with one a hundred percent clear up rate.On this occasion Jack is called to give a lecture to a group young police officers on their initial detective training course.He is introduced to the course then relates some narratives of some very unusual cases he has dealt with.
