Seeking escape from a boring job, in 1962 Len Norman joined the Northern Rhodesia Police.
Over the next three years his yearning for adventure was amply fulfilled with postings to the Victoria Falls and Kalomo, a bush station covering the Kafue National Park, and a brief detachment to deal with a violent uprising in the Northern Province.
After independence he was one of a handful of British officers who stayed on in Zambia, a frontline state confronting racist regimes in Rhodesia and South Africa at a vitally important juncture of Central African history.
Within five years he was running Lusaka CID and over the following twenty served in law enforcement agencies investigating cases all over the world. His last assignment was to establish a powerful commission to investigate corruption, reporting directly to the President.
He describes the political and social changes after independence and how his perception of Zambia and its people evolved over time. Alongside his remarkable career he led an enviable lifestyle in a near-perfect climate, raising a family more African than European in a surprisingly carefree environment.
The story of his experiences in a country he loved and regarded as home provides a fascinating insight into life in Central Africa during those turbulent times.
