hobbes_bones_flatWilkie Martin continues the exciting comedy cozy fantasy adventures of the unhuman Inspector Hobbes with Inspector Hobbes and the Bones, the fourth book in his unhuman series. There’s going to be trouble. Andy Caplet’s wife goes away, someone is out to get him, and he loses nearly everything in a storm. Amazing both himself and his unhuman friend Inspector Hobbes, he heroically rescues flood victims and uncovers something shocking. Is Andy being set up for blackmail by the apparently charming young woman who attempts to seduce him, or is something even more sinister afoot? Hobbes certainly believes so, and he’s getting worried.

Suitable for teenage and upwards. Set in the English Cotswolds and featuring the unhuman British detective Inspector Hobbes as told by the chaotic reporter Andy Caplet. It is not necessary to have read the previous books in the series. It will be published on 16 Dec 2016 and will available in paperback, hardback, ebook and ibook.

“Amazing cozy mystery/urban fantasy
I loved this book. As a cozy mystery, it had the typical food stories, romance, dogs, and murder. But that is where any similarly to other cozy mysteries ends for this cozy is also urban fantasy with monsters and inhumans. And puns. Lot’s of puns. Author Wilkie Martin successfully blends the two genres into a great story. This is the fourth book of the series but the first one I read. Martin manages to explain everything on the run so the book works well as a stand alone. I recommend this book for fans of either genre. Readers of the Discworld series may also enjoy this series as Martin writes similarly to Sir Terry Pratchett.”Stephen Goldberg

“Wow, Wilkie Martin delivers another finely crafted tapestry of un-human mystery with a dash of incisive wit and provocative humor. Andy is a bit dense at times, almost too dense but seems to provide the comedic relief throughout the story line. The supporting characters are built solidly within the bounds of the movement which is elegantly constructed to provide a multitude of storyline threads.  A fun ride that is hard to put down.”Anders Mikkelsen
