Book 2 in new humorous mystery series - Inspector Hobbes and the Curse

By Wilkie Martin

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


Again set in the Cotswolds, this is the next instalment in the adventures of Inspector Hobbes, Mrs Goodfellow and Dregs, as narrated by the still disaster-prone Andy Caplet. It is a rip roaring, funny and moving tale of Andy's infatuation with a dangerously beautiful woman, starting off during investigations into sheep deaths and the mysterious disappearance of pheasants. These incidents appear to be connected to a rash of big cat sightings, and something horrible seems to be lurking in the woods. Is Andy cursed to be always unsuccessful in love, or is the curse something much darker, something that will arouse his primeval terrors? Suitable for a wide readership, from teenage upwards.




Wilkie Martin has lived and worked in the Cotswolds for 30 years. In the distant past he studied Agricultural Science, beer, and rock and roll at the University of Leeds, having attended school in Sutton Coldfield, near Birmingham. He was born in Nottingham. He is a member of the Catchword writers' group in Cirencester, and has been writing a series of novels, short stories and some poems, following a creative writing course with Dr Rona Laycock at Cirencester College. Wilkie has been a scuba diver for more than 20 years, diving in many locations around the world and in the UK. He is a diving instructor and a keen shark watcher. He is an enthusiastic cook, a hobby guitarist, a music fan and an avid reader. He lives with his partner of 30 years in the Cotswolds.
