What's Tha Up To Nah? by Martyn Johnson


What's Tha Up To Nah? by Martyn Johnson

'Many times I heard people say that you'll have no friends if you're a policeman. How wrong they were. If you were right with them, they were right with you.'PC Martyn Johnson is back on the beat with more hilarious and heart-warming stories from the golden age of policing. With his nose for trouble and a knack for mischief, there's no such thing as a quiet shift for the friendly Yorkshire bobby - from drunken dogs and runaway horses to high-speed chases after Burglar Bill, there's always something to keep him busy and always another troublemaker to put to rights. And with a cuppa-tea stop and a familiar face on every corner of his beat, he's never far from a friend.


This is a heart-warming read, well written with compassion and humour--New Books A wonderful slice-of-life autobiography . . . vividly atmospheric--Daily Express

Lovereading is like booking a holiday, you don't know what it will be like and it is a whole new experience.

The selections are so varied and the reader reviews are so helpful. A fantastic website for those who love books.

Ann Quintilla

I love reading books I wouldn't normally choose before everyone else gets to read them!

Dawn Lynch

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

Jen Rainbow

I 'Lovereading' because it lets me see what new books are around with a detailed synopsis and readers' reviews.

Judith Sharp

If you LOVE reading then you will love LOVEREADING! It's a 'novel' idea. Seriously though I could not recommend them enough.
