Product Description

Product Description

Inspector Bill Brock of the Sussex Police has his life changed forever the day he finds a naked man in his marital bed.
Banished to the sleepy March town of Llanwart, Bill needs all his natural ingenuity to keep his 2 Welsh sargeants in line not to mention the amorous advances of Mrs. Jones.
The little matter of a burnt down cottage - could it really be a resurgence of the Sons of Glyndwr? - a deadly explosion in the Major's garden and the unnerving habit of Lady Dorothy of firing her shotgun out of the window whenever visitors come to her door all fade into insignificance when 'the body' comes to town.
All in all, there is much farcical Trouble on the March.
Please note for authenticity, there is some strong language in this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good aprt from obscene langauage 25 April 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am not a prude and regularly swear in conversation. However, I found the c78t word within chapter one somewhat off-putting as it was quite redundant to the story.

However, I persisted and found an engaging read with believable characters in amusing situations. Hero Bill's demolition of a Welsh Marches town centre is most enjoyable.

Worth a read, IMHO.

3.0 out of 5 stars Surprised. 28 April 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
From the style of the cover and the blurb about the content I had expected a nice read, easy and relaxed in the style of a Hamish Macbeth tale. I was a little shaken therefore to encounter somewhat ripe language within a few pages, especially since my daughter occasionally borrows my Kindle! (She's 24 but I don't want her wondering just how much the menopause is affecting me!)However, on persevering, it seems to be a well written and funny book. I'm still at the beginning of it but I'm hoping it keeps up the hilarity of the first rather expressive chapter.

5.0 out of 5 stars Had me laughing for ages 24 Jun 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was a super book, obviously written by an ex police officer or someone who has spent alot of time with police officers. Great story with great charachters. This book really brought a smile to my face, and the odd tear of laughter too. The central charachter, Insp Brock is superb. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes a chuckle. Ex police officers especially will identify with quite a few of the starring officers in the story. Well written C A Marriott and thankyou.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth it! 4 May 2012
By Marc
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Tried it on the spur of the moment, downloaded the sample and got hooked. A bit dated in ways I can't really put my finger on ( apart from mention of the Granada) but a nice style, reminiscent of Tom Sharpe. Off now to see if I can find any more from the s Author

5.0 out of 5 stars Revenge is it ever sweet? 28 April 2012
By Bugly
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
What a book, if you are male and have been through a divorce as the innocent party boy will you love this one. if you like a laugh out loud that is just spot on in its true to life characters and is well-crafted, then this is for you. It does have a few swear words but they are in context and if you have ever been in any of the situations in this book you will no doubt have used the same language yourself. This is a great tale, a fun read and great entertainment. So many times these books end with a girlie `and along comes a rich lover to make everything happy' cliché, but this one just delivers life as it is.
I enjoyed every word, every twist, it is not a book that will make you change your life or think about anything in detail. It is a comedy, a total farce about the misfortunes of others and the potential hilarity that can come about as a result. Life is crap, we all know this, it just starts to go right and some idiot upsets the apple cart, from then on it is all downhill until you see the chance for revenge, an outlet for your misfortune. Read this and you will giggle, laugh and join in with the mischief that unfolds. Anyone who has had a life will see parables and wish that they could have had the `balls' (read the book to understand the joke) to repay those who seek to make life difficult in a similar way.
Great fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny read 10 May 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Have read this in a day and loved it. I too was a bit taken aback by the strong language at the start of the book but great to see that the author has now removed this following other readers' feedback.
A great read, quite reminiscent of Tom Sharp. Had me laughing out loud.
Would definitely recommend it.
