Summary
CRIME & MYSTERY. Young Rhea is appointed as an Aide to the CID, an essential part of every constable's training. Adopting civilian clothes, he joins the Criminal Investigation Department to learn about the work of the men in plain clothes. Asked to keep a watchful eye on a house thought to be used as a brothel, Rhea quietly climbs the roof and sends a tile crashing through the window. When the woman resident and her five brothers set about the neighbours for causing the damage, the police turn out in force and arrest everybody ...meanwhile Rhea lies low on the roof. Investigating a series of housebreakings, the CID visit a local snooker hall. There the Detective Sergeant challenges two strong suspects to a match on the understanding that if he wins, they will admit to the crime. Packed with stories that reveal the joys and sorrows of country folk, "Constable in Disguise" creates a colourful picture of Rhea's foray into detective work in North Yorkshire
