Rate this:
Police Constable Nicholas Rhea continues his enthralling account of rural bobbying on the North Yorkshire Moors and finds himself dealing with a host of intriguing characters who live and work on these spectacular heights. Among the hilarious anecdotes are the cases of witchcraft used by Katherine Hardwick to rid herself of a troublesome suitor and the insurance man who covers a dog against its persistent theft and unscrupulous love-making. Contrasting with the humor and joy of rustic life there is sadness and Nicholas Rhea tells the poignant tale of the man who came to bury his wife on her beloved moors. The book is packed with stories of a country flavor and it provides a colorful picture of police work in a large rural district. There is humor and pathos and above all a love of human beings and concern for their welfare.
