Baby Blues

WPC Samantha Barrie has survived her first few years at Wyre Hall police station in the Peninsula. Station politics, sexist colleagues and belligerent busybodies are just some of the things she has to deal with on a daily basis, and that’s before the day job itself.

But now comes her toughest test yet, as a series of cases thrust her right into the heart of the action – but this time Sam, and those close to her, are the ones under investigation.

Baby Blues is the next instalment in the story of WPC Sam Berrie, a gripping story of policing and life in 1970s England.
