A cheerful and entertaining insight into the daily life of a rural police officer. A book to make you laugh - and cry.
Crime comes to Aidensfield when haystacks are fired, and Arnold Merryweather’s ancient bus helps catch a car thief. And when PC Rhea arrests not only a pig thief but also the expectant pig, the police station cleaner is not very pleased.
But it’s not all crime. A glider crashes into a romance in a thatched cottage and then Rhea is involved in a plot to force a Yorkshire miser to spend money.
Nicholas Rhea is the pen-name of Peter N. Walker, formerly an inspector with the North Yorkshire Police, and the creator of the Constable series of books from which the Yorkshire TV series has been derived.
