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

First edition, first print hardback of CONSTABLE ACROSS THE MOORS by Nicholas Rhea and published by Robert Hale Limited, London, in 1982. Signed by Rhea on the front endpaper. The fourth book in the series that was later adapted for TV (Heartbeat).

The book is in very good condition (clean black cloth boards and silver lettering on spine) with minor shelf wear to the illustrated dust jacket, which is protected in mylar and is not price clipped. Internally, the pages are clean and tight, there are no tears and no other inscriptions.

Nicholas Rhea is one of the six pen-names for Peter N. Walker, formerly an inspector with the North Yorkshire Police and the creator of the Constable series.

As Peter N. Walker, he is the author of Portrait of the North York Moors and many murders and mysteries. He joined the North Yorkshire force as a beat bobby in Whitby. He also began to write seriously after years of casual interest, having his first short story published in the Police Review.

In 1967 his first novel, Carnaby and the Hijackers, was published. He retired in 1982 after 30 years' service to concentrate on his writing, encouraged by an interest in his Constable books from Yorkshire Television. Nicholas Rhea has written around 130 books in the last 40 years.

He has been writing books, drawing on his experiences in the police force, his never-ending enthusiasm for Yorkshire and his continuing interest in crime fact and fiction.

His best known work, the Constable stories, provided the inspiration for the hugely popular Heartbeat TV series, and he remained involved as a consultant until filming ended in 2009. Nicholas Rhea is also the author of many other books, among them the Pemberton series and the most recent of these is Murder under the Midnight Sun.

Constable Across the Moors was the fourth Constable book, published in 1982.

"Police Constable Nicholas Rhea continues his enthralling account of rural bobbying on the North Yorkshire Moors and finds himself dealing with a host of intriguing characters who live and work on these spectacular heights.

Among the hilarious anecdotes are the cases of witchcraft used by Katherine Hardwick to rid herself of a troublesome suitor and the insurance man who covers a dog against its persistent theft and unscrupulous love-making.

Contrasting with the humour and joy of rustic life there is sadness and Nicholas Rhea tells the poignant tale of the man who came to bury his wife on her beloved moors.

The book is packed with stories of a country flavour and it provides a colourful picture of police work in a large rural district. There is humour and pathos and above all a love of human beings and concern for their welfare."

172 pages.
