Pannett, the James Herriot of policing, tiptoes his way through domestic issues, stag nights, and sword-wielding madmen bent on decapitation and tells his tales with warmth and humour. (Daily Express on You're Coming With Me Lad)
Move over James Herriot and Gervase Phinn - there is a new name on the North Yorkshire literary block. (York Press)
Think 21st-century Heartbeat meets James Herriot with the occasional white-knuckle ride of The Sweeney throw in. All delivered with a Yorkshire twang. (The Telegraph)
'After years in the Metropolitan Police, on the beat in central London, Mike Pannett is hoping for a quieter life when he moves back to his home county, Yorkshire. But crime lurks amid the hills and dales, moors, villages and towns and he finds some of the policing tactics he's learned in London come in very useful. More tales from this Yorkshire bobby, who is building a loyal collection of fans with his engaging books.' (Choice Magazine)
Following the huge success of You're Coming With Me, Lad and Not On My Patch, Lad, Yorkshire bobby, Mike Pannett, returns with new crime fighting stories.See all Product description

These books, in my opinion, are far more funny and interesting. I bought this one, read it cover to cover and then ordered all his other books and read them in double quick time too. If you have any interest in police work, rural affairs, North Yorkshire, or people, and have a sense of humour then I challenge you not to laugh at these stories.
My only, mild, criticism would be a lack of any story about his last days in the Met to put his arrival in North Yorkshire in context, but as I'm not an author, and in fact barely literate I wouldn't add any weight to that criticism if I were you.
Buy it now!
His descriptions of Country Policing, plus his experiences in The Met are forthright, practical, entertaining and informative.
Mixed with a large slice of humour and his ability to bring events, characters and the North Yorkshire Countryside alive in print there's nothing not to like and enjoy.
Let's hope there's more to come
