I was a successful gay police detective; good at my job, content with helping others, motivated by a sense of justice and trust I held both with my colleagues and ordinary people.
I always strived to be compassionate, diligent, and friendly to people around me. My future was seemingly bright.
That was until one day in March. Within five seconds, I turned my life upside down. I got arrested and was put through the criminal justice and media machine.
This is an authentic story of who I was and how I survived the most difficult period of my life.

About the Author
I was born in a small city in central Poland. In November of 2004 I emigrated to the UK and initially settled in the North of England before moving to London in 2006.
After years of struggling with my sexuality, I was able to come out as a gay man – something I would have never been able to do in Poland. For many years, I held a variety of ordinary jobs before a traumatic event in March of 2023 forced me to re-imagine my future and take on the role of a writer. “Behind The Headline” is my debut into the literary world written from the heart and with passion of someone who was in the centre of his life being turned upside down.
