5.0 out of 5 stars Another great book - "Not On My Patch" by Mike Pannett, 17 April 2012
This review is from: Not on My Patch, Lad (Paperback)
Not on My Patch, Lad
This is the third book in the series by ex Met and North Yorkshire policeman Mike Pannett. I have previously reviewed "Now Then, Lad" and "You're Coming With Me, Lad" on my blog and here. If you are not familiar with these titles, or have never read Mike Pannett before, then I recommend you read the review of "Now Then, Lad" to get an idea of the direction that the books take.

As with the second edition, this third edition flows seamlessly from its predecessor. In a few years time, I can imagine the complete series being sold either as a complete, single bound edition, or a boxed set. In fact, I predict that these books will be as well known and fondly remembered as the James Herriot books. Pannett continues to tell his tales of crime, police work, and personal life in North Yorks with endearing honesty and passion. His descriptions of the countryside and the idyllic lifestyle do a great service to his home county, and it's no surprise to find that he has now teamed up with "Welcome To Yorkshire" to promote tourism in the area.

The book also continues to capture the unique nature of Yorkshire folk; friendly yet fiercely proud and independent. There's also some gentle fun poked at the legendary Yorkshire stinginess! The pace is always good, but there are times when it accelerates to a rush, such as when Mike in involved in pursuit of some serial criminals, or attending a fire at a remote farmhouse in treacherous icy conditions.

The book ends with Mike at a crossroads in his career, and I eagerly await delivery of the fourth book, "Just The Job, Lad".
