Found this at the author's website:

"Detective Inspector Scholes joined the Metropolitan Police in 1888, just before the Jack the Ripper Murders plunged the East-End into the public consciousness. This is his story of the crimes and criminals he met during his illustrious career spanning nearly 40 years, from lowly Police Constable Scholes to lofty Detective Inspector Scholes of Scotland Yard. In 1913 Scholes left the Met Police and joined the fledgling Port of London Authority Police Force as Detective Inspector. It was here, in 1922, that Scholes boarded the SS Morea and took possession of love letters written by Edith Thompson to her young lover Frederick Bywaters. The letters would be instrumental in sending the two lovers to the gallows for the murder of Percy Thompson, Edith's husband. The case still resonates today, but was Edith Thompson innocent of murder, as some suggest, or a calculating, desperate woman, who was ultimately responsible for the deaths of two men in the primes of their lives?"

"Due for publication on Kindle, Kobo and in Paperback in early October"

Author G.S. Burroughs writes nonfiction and biography. Sounds like an interesting read, as you say.

I agree, I believe he started his career in D Division, I hope the book devotes a bit to his time as a PC seconded to H Division during the hunt for the Ripper. But the rest of it sounds good as well mind.

Took a gamble and bought a copy................

I can confirm that the first chapter of the book is devoted to his time as a PC seconded to H Division (page 15 to page 42).
