Inspector Hobbes and the Blood by Cirencester author Wilkie Martin is the first in his unhuman series of humorous mysteries. It has reached the number 2 position in’s Comedy bestseller category for Kindle books. It has also featured as the Top 14 book for British Detectives and Top 27 for Cozy Mysteries.
Wilkie said ‘my publisher, The Witcherley Book Company, ran a small promotion on the books and I’m delighted with the results, especially in the USA. The main character in the books was inspired by Alan Titchmarch’s portrayal of a Neanderthal during a documentary. The books narrator, Andy Caplet, fills the same role as Dr Watson in Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Homes stories since the eponymous Hobbes is so different it provides the reader with a way into his character, although Andy has far more character flaws than Dr Watson.’
It is set in the Cotswolds and is a story of murder, mayhem and missing violins, introducing a cast of memorable and engaging characters, who also feature in the following book, Inspector Hobbes and the Curse.
Cotswold Life’s Katie Jarvis reviewed the book as ‘odd, inventive, and genuinely very funny indeed’ and other reviews love the characters and humour, demanding more in the series. The third book Inspector Hobbes and the Root of All Evil is planned for publication later this year. They are suitable for anyone with a quirky sense of humor, from teenagers upwards. The first two books in the unhuman series are available on Amazon in Kindle and paperback.
