Escapism and crazy, quirky adventures in Wilkie Martin's unhuman series.

Set in the English Cotswolds, the series includes: 
Inspector Hobbes and the Blood - unhuman Book 1
Publisher: The Witcherley Book Company
Publication Date: January 12, 2014
Print Length: 313 Pages

A reporter with nothing to lose. An inspector with something to hide. The Cotswolds’ newest odd couple is on the case…

Of all the journalists at his small-town paper, Andy Caplet is far and away the worst. At least he has a job. But when his latest expose on the strange and scandalous Inspector Hobbes backfires, Andy is left broke and homeless. The inspector’s offer of a spare room for a few days (or months) seems like the only option…

Andy agrees to accompany the inspector to investigate a sudden surge in crime and soon finds himself immersed in a world beyond humanity. It turns out that Inspector Hobbes eats raw bones, their housekeeper collects teeth, and their guests include trolls, dwarves, and ghouls. As Andy tries to piece together the inspector’s true identity, his new partner is hard at work solving unexplainable murders, suicides, and robberies. If they can’t learn to work together and solve the mystery in time, the chilling fate of their charming town will be sealed…

Inspector Hobbs and the Blood is the first book in a series of comedy crime fantasy novels. If you like intriguing characters, hilarious wit, and small-town whodunits with fantasy flair, then you’ll love Wilkie Martin’s fast-paced supernatural tale.

Shortlisted for the Impress Prize for New Writers 2012


Inspector Hobbes and the Curse – unhuman Book 2 
Publisher: The Witcherley Book Company
Publication Date: October 28, 2013
Print Length: 355 Pages

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’s comedy romance cursed to be unsuccessful, or is the curse something much darker, something that will arouse his primeval terrors?

'Love may be on the horizon but, beware, something wicked this way comes.'

This new comedy fantasy book series is suitable for teenagers and upwards.

Read these new humorous mysteries and you'll never look at The Cotswolds in the same way again. This is the second novel in the series featuring the same memorable characters, but it is not necessary to have read the first, as all the books are stand-alone novels and can be read individually.


Inspector Hobbes and the Gold Diggers – unhuman Book 3
Publisher: The Witcherley Book Company (January 12, 2014)
Publication Date: September 27, 2014
Print Length: 329 Pages

Receiving unwanted attention after foiling an armed robbery, the unhuman Inspector Hobbes takes a long-overdue camping holiday, with Andy, his accident-prone friend, and Dregs, the delinquent dog. In the bleak and dangerous Blacker Mountains, Andy stumbles across something shocking, before falling for an attractive widow, while Hobbes wonders why an old gold mine has reopened.

On their return to the sleepy Cotswold town of Sorenchester, Hobbes is dumbfounded when Kathy, a reminder of his hippy days, turns up on the doorstep with her baggage. Since Hobbes has to solve a gold robbery and contemplate some perfectly ordinary rocks, Andy must entertain Kathy while trying to protect his new love from a monstrous opponent working for the sinister Sir Gerald Payne. Despite his usual blunderings and an inability to throw straight, Andy displays genuine courage.
Hobbes: 'I always knew you'd get ahead one day'

Can Andy survive dinner with a vampire? Can Hobbes recover the gold? And what is Kathy’s relationship to Hobbes? This, the third in Wilkie Martin’s unhuman series of fast-paced comedy crime fantasies will reveal all.


Madcap Tales, cult following for his whacky books, as inventive as they are entertaining - Cotswold Life

Wilkie Martin is a bestselling comedy writer. He lives in the Cotswolds, UK with his partner Julia in a town remarkably similar to the fictional Sorenchester of his unhuman series, although he has never come across a policeman there like Inspector Hobbes. 

He loves cooking, especially curries which is why his characters tend to like things spicy and despite living as far away from the coast as is possible in the UK, he is a qualified scuba diving instructor.
