Playing with Fire

The True Story of Fireman Scam

“In my 23 years of policing, I have never encountered a man as manipulative as Greg Wilson… a compulsive liar who has shown absolutely no remorse… If somebody wrote this as a script for Coronation Street, it would be too outrageous.” – Detective Constable Chris Bentham

Coleen Greenwood was overjoyed to meet James Scott, a heroic firefighter and man of her dreams. Little would she know her dreams would soon become a nightmare as his web of lies started to unravel.

The astonishing true story of one man’s lies and a family’s fight for justice.

This is the full untold story that was made into the BBC Sounds podcast series “Love-Bombed with Vicky Pattison” which reached No1 in the UK Apple podcasts playlist within the first week of its release.

A portion of proceeds from all book sales will be donated to “Women’s Aid” –
