The Hickory Stick

By Ted Bocking
Published by Thistle Publishing
ISBN 9781910670729
Category Historical
Autumn 2016 (Sept - Nov)


In January 1840, 19 year old Barnaby Madden becomes a constable with the new Norfolk County Constabulary, having been given just three days’ instruction and then sent on his way.

Author's Biography

Surviving the Blitz, an inconspicuous grammar school education and a bemused service in army Intelligence make for an odd background for an author. Remnants of Ted Bocking's great grandfather’s scribbled notes formed the basis of the Barnaby Madden books - The Hickory Stick and The Ashen Rung.
