-- Wilkie Martin’s humorous debut novel, Inspector Hobbes and the Blood (http://www.amazon.com/
dp/0957635109 ), is set in the Cotswolds and described as ‘Odd, inventive, and genuinely very funny indeed’ by Cotswold Life magazine. It is the first outing of his endearing and memorable characters and hits ‘the road running with more double entendres than a Carry On film’ (Amazon.com Top 100 reviewer). This comedy crime fantasy series starts by introducing Inspector Hobbes’s investigations into a murder and a series of thefts as described by the clumsy narrator Andy Caplet, whose own incompetence and occasionally well-meaning mishaps are reminiscent of the adventures of Inspector Clouseau.
