Publisher's Summary

"I was grateful for having been born human."
There's going to be trouble. Andy Caplet's wife goes away, someone is out to get him, and he loses nearly everything in a storm. Amazing both himself and his unhuman friend, Inspector Hobbes, he heroically rescues flood victims and uncovers something shocking.
Is Andy being set up for blackmail by the apparently charming young woman who attempts to seduce him, or is something even more sinister afoot? Hobbes certainly believes so, and he's getting worried.
This is the fourth in Wilkie Martin's Unhuman series of cozy comedy crime fantasies.
Praise for Wilkie Martin:
"Odd, inventive, and genuinely very funny indeed" - Katie Jarvis, Cotswold Life
"I enjoy how silly everything is." - Jo Ann Hakola, The Book Faerie

Slapstick Adventures

I’ve listened to all 4 of Inspector Hobbs books by Wilkie Martin. I didn’t think I would like them as they are not my usual read. I was pleasantly surprised. They are sort of crime novels with lots of slapstick comedy. Set in a small Cotswold town, Inspector Hobbes Books (Inspector Hobbs and the Blood, The Curse, The Gold Diggers and The Bones) are fast-paced comedy, mystery and fantasy books about the adventures of Andy, an incompetent reporter. Andy gets sacked from his job as he is no good at it, his flat catches fire the same night and he is rescued by Hobbs and ends up staying in Inspector Hobb’s spare room. Contending with murder, suicide, and robbery, as well as Hobbes's weirdness, is the just the start; he must also get to grips with Mrs. Goodfellow, Hobbes's eccentric old housekeeper who teaches marital arts and who’s wonderful cooking, he feels is the best in the world, plus a huge dog named Dregs rescued by Hobbs. The three of them solve various crimes together (well Hobbs does), Andy is a bit of an idiot and very accident prone which makes for some funny slapstick scenes. He meets some of Hobb’s friends, a Troll, a Vampire, a Dwarf, a Warewolf who act more human than their lineage expects of them, together with a very large pub landlord with a bad temper, who become Andy's friends as well. A great listen and a good laugh. Brilliantly narrated by Tim Campbell who does a very good job of all the different voices.
