Steven was a police officer with London's Metropolitan Police for 30 years, with over half of that time spent as a Scotland Yard detective. Now retired from the force, his first book, Murder Investigation Team allows the reader to step inside the mind of an investigator in a never-before-seen look into what it takes to catch killers and bring them to justice. His second book, Murder Investigation Team: Jack the Ripper, is a fresh, new assessment of the unsolved Whitechapel murders, from a modern-day police expert. Steven provides consultancy to film, TV, and documentary makers, and runs a YouTube channel, Murder Academy, providing walk-through videos on a wide range of criminal topics. He regularly appears on true crime and criminal justice podcasts, and provides freelance consultancy to film, TV, documentary makers and news outlets, helping to make our favourite police procedurals as close to the real thing as possible.
