If anything suspicious is reported in the peaceful Yorkshire village of Aidensfield, it's a fair bet that loveable scoundrel, Claude Jeremiah Greengrass, is not far away...
Whether he's trying to squash six sheep into a Ford Anglia, bottling "holy"
water with insanitary results, or running a coconut shy where the coconuts are not all they seem, Claude Jeremiah Greengrass - and his dog, Alfred - always have some dodgy scheme afoot. So it's down to Sergeant Blaketon and P.C. Nick to keep one step ahead of them - without falling over their own feet in the process.
A delightful history of the chequered career of Aidensfield's most unregenerate rogue.
