Publisher's Summary

Whilst serving as an aide to the CID, Detective Constable Rhea is kept busy in the seaside resort of Strensford as he endeavours to trace a stolen garden spade, the thief of a makeshift hearse with a corpse onboard, and the phantom knicker pincher of Harbour Rise.

Throughout his early days, Nick, like many other detectives, nurses an ambition to arrest a murderer, but no opportunities come his way - until a killer on the run seeks refuge in Strensford and an elderly lady is found dead at home.

I love this audiobook

I was so pleased with the story and the narrator. I really like the characters in the story. I am going to buy more Nicholas Rhea audiobooks.

Interesting and charming

Since these stories are true, they are particularly interesting. The narration is great! I love the Nick Rhea (pron Ray) Constable books! Definitely feel-good stuff!!!

Very boring

Very disappointing. It's more like a documentary with loads of pointless detail. Performer had very little to work with.

Entertaining

Good listen as always in the Constable series, only gripe is the narrator, not that he did a bad job but the other books were read by Philip Franks, why change it for one book ? it’s distracting when they use a different narrator in the middle of a collection. Nick McArdle sounds about 20 years older than Philip Franks, I want consistency with Audio book series collections.

Thoroughly enjoyable

This story is better than his other books as there is less background information given and more stories and dialogue. Always interesting hearing about policing in the 50's and it is such a change to have policemen that are actually nice to each other. If you love Yorkshire, its people, customs and autobiography then this is for you.
