This is the unique story of Manchester's first Royal Detective, James Wood, a former 'sharp shooter' in Queen Victoria's mighty Army of the Empire, who gradually progressed through the ranks of the City Police force to become the youngest Superintendent in their history - and a highly successful 'thief taker.' For many years around the turn of the century, he also helped protect a number of prominent VIPs and several visiting members of the royal family - in particular, the Prince and Princess of Wales - during a time of political unrest and specific threats against the Monarchy from 'foreign agents & agitators'. James was also involved in a host of other memorable events relating to the development of Manchester United, the Daily Mail air race, and major social reforms. This book commemorates the 90th anniversary of his death and reveals his secret diary notes, news cuttings and personal photographs from a memorable time long forgotten.
