'a warm and entertaining read'.
Pannett, the James Herriot of policing, tiptoes his way through domestic issues, stag nights, and sword-wielding madmen bent on decapitation and tells his tales with warmth and humour.
Move over James Herriot and Gervase Phinn - there is a new name on the North Yorkshire literary block.
Think 21st-century Heartbeat meets James Herriot with the occasional white-knuckle ride of The Sweeney thrown in. All delivered with a Yorkshire twang.
'After years in the Metropolitan Police, on the beat in central London, Mike Pannett is hoping for a quieter life when he moves back to his home county, Yorkshire. But crime lurks amid the hills and dales, moors, villages and towns and he finds some of the policing tactics he's learned in London come in very useful. More tales from this Yorkshire bobby, who is building a loyal collection of fans with his engaging books.'
