Tim has won multiple Earphone Awards from AudioFile Magazine for his readings of audiobooks and we are delighted he agreed to read this comedy cozy-mystery fantasy series. He has really brought the odd-ball characters to life.

Inspector Hobbes and the Blood
Inspector Hobbes, a monstrous police detective, investigates grave, ghoulish, goings-on. A mad pseudo vampire with the dagger of Vlad Tepes is behind robbery, and murder. It is a funny tale with a troll, human sacrifice, blood and great cooking.

‘How to describe the books? Well, if you like Terry Pratchett, Tom Sharpe or Tom Holt then this is the book for you. If you like absurdity, good writing, mouth-watering descriptions of food and humour then you will love this book. I did.’
(Inspector Hobbes and the Bloods Book Reviews item created by old_fat_and_hairy arrse.co.uk/community/reviews/inspector-hobbes-and-the-blood.469/)

Inspector Hobbes and the Curse
Andy becomes infatuated with a dangerously beautiful woman during Hobbes’s investigations into sheep deaths and the mysterious disappearance of pheasants, which are apparently connected to a rash of big cat sightings; and something horrible seems to be lurking in the woods.

‘I had fun relaxing with this novel, cigar in hand’
