Item description, condition report, payment options and related products below

First edition, first print hardback of CONSTABLE AROUND THE VILLAGE by Nicholas Rhea and published by Robert Hale Limited, London, 1981. The third book in the popular Heartbeat series.

The book is in very good condition (clean blue cloth boards and silver lettering on spine) with minor wear to the illustrated dust jacket, which is not price clipped (light creasing to edges and light rubbing to top edge corner). Internally, the pages are clean and tight, there are no tears and no inscriptions.

Constable Around the Village was the third Constable book, published in 1981.

"As he settles into the village life of Aidensfield, North Yorkshire, Police Constable Nicholas Rhea begins to understand the complexities of rural law enforcement, much of which proves to be very unofficial but highly effective. We hear of his dilemma as he is torn between his desire to prove the crippled Sidney Chapman's dog innocent of sheep-worrying, and the need to do his duty.

Farmer Lowe's sheepdog presents a different problem: the overworked old dog is pretending to be deaf and Rhea finds himself drawn into the crisis; without the dog, the cows cannot be milked. Local colours and characters abound.

The mixed creeds of the community provide more headaches for Rhea: for example James Bathurst's funeral goes quite smoothly except that the village grave-digger does not want the death-bed convert buried in Catholic ground and has omitted to dig the grave. Rivalry abounds between Anglicans, Catholics and Methodists, and Rhea has his work cut out.

More problems stem from the unlawful activities of Arnold Merryweather's bus, with its massive conductress, Hannah, a jockey who steals apples for his hungry horse and the old railway worker who vanishes as the last train passes through the village. In all, a vivid light-hearted insight into rural bobbying."

191 pages.
