Paul Verhoeven's ex-cop dad, John, spent years embroiled in some of the seediest, scariest intrigue and escapades imaginable. One day John offered Paul the chance of a lifetime: he'd spill his guts on tape. What unfolded in Loose Units was a goldmine of true-crime stories, showcasing John's dramatic experience of policing in Sydney in the 1980s and brilliantly twisted sense of humour. But what happened next in John's career was twice as weird.

Electric Blue spans the final years of John's stint in the New South Wales police force, when he took up an offer to move into the grimy, analytical world of forensics. Paul unpicks his father's most terrible cases. There was the case of a rapist hiding in the walls of shower block, a body that was quite literally cooked, and the bizarre copycat suicides.

But what's it actually like to have a heroic ex-cop as a Dad? Paul and John delve into their unique father-son relationship and how they ended up so different to each other. They figure out how to deal with the choices they've made ... or wish they'd made. And Paul's mum, Christine, reveals what it was like to be a pioneering female cop in the eighties when misogyny was rife in the force.

Thrilling, fascinating and unexpectedly laugh-out-loud funny, Electric Blue is another high-octane adventure in policing, integrity and learning what family is really all about.

Paul... I did like the book. It was great, however I thought the chose your own adventure chapter was interesting, but after the 2nd telling, it put me into to torpor and I drifted off and nearly missed my bus stop. After saying that, you are a great narrator with variable voices and it was a great listen. I was a little disenchanted to hear the majority was the same adventures from the podcast, but that will not stop me letting other friends not to get the book. As I said, I did enjoy it. Your family lived an amazing life and you captured their police work well. for those who have not listened to the podcast, buy this book first.
