Cozy Mystery Unhuman Book is Multi-Category Finalist in Inaugural ABR Audiobook Listener Awards 2018

8 February 2018

The comedy cozy mystery fantasy book Inspector Hobbes and the Blood by Wilkie Martin narrated by Tim Campbell is a finalist in the Mystery, Fantasy and Humor categories of the Audiobook Reviewer Audiobook Listener Awards 2018.

A British detective story set in the Cotswolds, it is the first outing for Andy Caplet and the unhuman Inspector Hobbes and is book 1 in Wilkie’s 4 book ‘unhuman’ series. In it 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.

Although in a series, each stand-alone story of these diverting and amusing listens will change your perception of the Cotswolds forever. The audiobooks in the series are all narrated by the award winning narrator, actor and opera singer Tim Campbell. They are suitable for teenagers upwards.

‘a clever crime mystery with comedy and a good deal of fantasy mixed in’, ‘One cannot help but be charmed by the story and the characters.’
‘Tim Campbell, the narrator, was equally awesome in his talented reading’
AudioBookReviewer Charla White
