    Mike Pannett(Author)

Policing rural Yorkshire is a far cry from Mike's old job hunting down drug gangs and knife crime in Central London. Settled back in his native Yorkshire, the former Metropolitan Policeman finds that life as a rural beat bobby is no picnic.
After a crazed swordsman threatens to take his head off, he finds himself confronting a knife-wielding couple bent on carving each other up. When a stag night turns ugly he ends up with the groom, the best man and the bride-to-be all banged up in the cells - and the wedding just hours away.
With record-breaking floods and politicians to escort, will Mike find time woo the woman of his dreams?

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)Move over James Herriot and Gervase Phinn - there is a new name on the North Yorkshire literary block. (York Press)

    Please can you write another one, we've read all four so far.

    Mr Pannett's books are easy to pick up and relax with for a while. The names of villages in his tales are familiar to me because we've spent years cycling through the area. This was my second book of his, and I'll look for anotther one.

    Boring took long to read

  • By George Dixon on 26 June 2009

    I couldn't wait for the next installment of Mike's adventures in North yorkshire and like all good things it was well worth the wait.Being a retired rural bobby myself and with family residing in the area that I have good knowledge of ,I was not to be disappointed.Mike has an easy style about his writing which makes this such a pleasurable read.You can easily identify with the situations that he finds himself in and the descriptions of the countryside and characters are second to none.Never mind five stars...I would give it ten out of ten.My only question would be,when is the next installment out?Well done,Mike,keep the stories coming!.

    I read Mike's first book "Now then lad" which I thought was fantastic. Now, having just finished "You're coming with me lad" I must say i am hooked. The book starts with drama and ends with romance. I found the stories both compeling and interesting. Each chapter is told with passion and wonderful detail of "what it's like been a rural beat bobby". The setting for the book is also based in a beautiful part of the country-North Yorkshire. I am so pleased I read the 1st,delighted with the 2nd and now can't wait for the 3rd. Brilliant
