Born and bred in Edinburgh, Tom Wood is a well-decorated senior officer who has built a successful career in the Scottish police force, laterally serving as the Deputy Chief Constable of Lothian & Borders Police.
Now retired, Wood has penned three true crime books including the most recent, Ruxton: The First Modern Murder. This book details the pioneering forensic work carried out by forces during the 1930s investigation of a gruesome double murder, and draws upon previously classified documents to build a detailed, engaging story about criminal investigation and justice.
Wood is also well-known for his regular column ‘Inside Justice’, with The Scotsman, and for his lecturing across the country.
