Coffins and graveyards are among the topics featured in this collection of constabulary tales from Heartbeat country. There's a puzzle for Constable Nick when hikers find an empty coffin and another head-scratching problem for Claude Jeremiah Greengrass when he's asked to tidy two local graveyards. A wealthy lady from overseas is heading for Aidensfield to seek the resting place of long-lost relatives. During his rustic duties, Constable Nick discovers the romantic legend of Witch Hill and learns that old-fashioned methods of dealing with wrongdoers prevail on the moors when he finds a village lock-up complete with occupant. There is concern when all thirty competitors on a motor rally get lost and bafflement when a box of chocolates, a raffle prize, is found to contain GBP 100 - but no one wants it. Constable Nick's constabulary duties must be done when a thief steals a murderer's driving licence, a miser fakes his own death and a lady identifies a detective as the man who stole her handbag. There is romance among the ruins too, and a fleeing ghost to set pulses racing. It's all in a day's work for Constable Nick of Aidensfield.

All very gentle and far, far removed from the hurly burly of modern day city policing.' Daily Telegraph 'Rhea's real strengths are his sharp portraits of people. The best humour comes from the author's close understanding and affectionate portrayals of the character of Yorkshire country folk.'

Yorkshire Post 'Filled with Yorkshire characters to make you laugh and cry... shows life through the eyes of a village bobby.'
