Publisher Description

There is a crime wave in the village.

“If we suffered three crimes in the district during a month, the local papers described it as a crime wave. These waves were very tiny, therefore, more like ripples on a village pond than the kind of waves that swamp ocean liners.”

A hay barn is set on fire at Low Dale Farm. It seems that an arsonist is targeting isolated barns.

Arnold Merryweather’s ancient bus helps catch a car thief.

And when Nick 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 Constable Nick is involved in a plot to force a penny-pincher to spend money.

In the beautiful North Yorkshire countryside of the 1960s, Constable Nick’s roles are as varied as the eccentric villagers.

About Nicholas Rhea

Nicholas Rhea (1936–2017) began to writing in the late 1950s after years of casual interest, having his first short story published in the Police Review. As he continued to rise through the ranks at the region’s police headquarters in Northallerton, he published his first novel, Carnaby and the Hijackers, in 1976. He is primarily known for his Constable Nick series, inspired by his many years of police service. He retired in 1982 to concentrate on his writing, encouraged by an interest in his Constable books from Yorkshire Television. This was to become the highly popular Heartbeat series, which ran for eighteen seasons and over 350 episodes.
