Book 1 in new humorous mystery series - Inspector Hobbes and the Blood

By Wilkie Martin

Fantasy, Crime & mystery | Paperback, Hardback, eBook, Audiobook


Inspector Hobbes and the Blood, the first in the unhuman series of humorous mysteries, is a fast-paced comedy crime fantasy set in and around a fictional town in the English Cotswolds. When Andy Caplet, an inept local reporter is assigned to Inspector Hobbes, a police officer with a troubling reputation, he has no idea what horrors his future holds. Besides coming to terms with Hobbes’s weirdness and with the bizarre eccentricities of Mrs Goodfellow, Hobbes’s housekeeper, he soon realises that not everyone is what they appear to be. Who is behind the crime wave in town? Is it possible to catch vampirism from false teeth? And why is the secret to the mystery in the blood? These are just some of the questions Andy must answer as he struggles to make sense of the world he’s been plunged into. Suitable for a wide readership, from teenage upwards.
