Cirencester writer Wilkie Martin continues the exciting comedy crime fantasy adventures of Inspector Hobbes with Inspector Hobbes and the Gold Diggers, the third book in his unhuman series.
The still disaster-prone Andy Caplet continues to narrate his adventures with police detective Inspector Hobbes as they take a well-earned holiday in the Blacker Mountains where Andy discovers a skeleton, the last remains of his new love interest’s husband.
Back in the sleepy Cotswold town of Sorenchester Andy tries to make sense of Hobbes’s investigation into a gold-robbery at Grossman’s Bank, managed by a soup eating vampire, and sees Hobbes nearly floored by an unexpected American visitor.

This author has become one of my favourites as he uses his characters to showcase a dry wit in tense situations.
No one character leaves the story unscathed by this rapier like wit’ (Koeur’s Book Reviews http://koeur.wordpress.com/2014/09/29/review-inspector-hobbes-and-the-gold-diggers-by-wilkie-martin/)
