About Bloody Scotland - Women on Both Sides of the Law: Alice Vinten and Mim Skinner

Alice Vinten was a cop on the streets of London for ten years. As a police constable in the Met, she witnessed at first hand the melting pot that is the UK’s largest city, complete with its inequalities, dangers and struggles. Her memoir of her time on the job, On The Line, is a gritty and gripping portrayal of contemporary policing.

Mim Skinner has seen the other side of the fence. As a former prison art teacher, she spent long hours with women behind bars – women whose story she has decided to tell. Her book, Jailbirds: Lessons From a Women’s Prison is darkly funny yet heartbreakingly poignant as it recounts individual stories of those caught in a crumbling system.

Together, they represent both sides of the law. If you fight it, can you win?
