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?
