Constable by the Stream



Constable by the Stream

In the splendid countryside of North Yorkshire, there's barely time to stop for Constable Nick Rhea...

Not when missing sheep need locating, stray dogs need homing and thieves need identifying!

As Britain's most popular copper continues his work around the village, he has to cope with an array of eccentric characters: a postman who can't read, a helpful lady who steals from the elderly people in her care, and a delightful small-time villain called Tin Lid Talbot.

Winning an aged tin of sardines in a local raffle and upsetting the villagers by getting first prize at the local whist drive, PC Nick Rhea must contend with the variety and humorous exploits of a Yorkshire village.

Constable by the Stream is the lively tale of a young PC and the small rural community he calls home.

Praise for Constable by the Stream:

"Stories of a constable on his village beat in North Yorkshire. All very gentle and far, far removed from the hurly burly of modern day city policing"
Daily Telegraph

"A fascinating insight into the life of a rural constable... the book makes splendid reading"
Police Journal

"Rhea's real strengths are his sharp portraits of people, and absorbing detail of a country copper practising his craft"
Northern Echo

Constable by the Stream has long been out of print, but is now once more available in both paperback and Kindle editions.
