Constable Along The TrailBook - 2005
Coffins and graveyards are among the topics featured in this latest 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 pound]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.
