A unique and fascinating lot.
*A career police officer, Detective Sergeant 4676 Stuart Smith was one of the key officers in the hunt for John Humble ('Wearside Jack', the Yorkshire Ripper hoaxer). Not only did D.S. Smith arrest Humble after a DNA identification in 2005, but he led the following interviews that led to his confession. The story is told in full in the book which accompanies the lot and in an episode of Crimewatch in 2009.
