Review of Inspector Hobbes & the Gold Diggers by Wilkie Martin

9 Comments

4.0 out of 5 stars A full cast of characters adds to the appeal of this stand alone novel.
This review is from: Inspector Hobbes and the Gold Diggers: Humorous Cotswold mystery (unhuman Book 3) (Kindle Edition)
I received a free kindle copy of Inspector Hobbes & the Gold Diggers unhuman III (humorous mystery) by Wilkie Martin published by The Witcherley Book Company from NetGalley for fair review. I gave it four stars. It reached my quirky sense of humor.

Andy Caplet, the disaster prone side kick of Inspector Hobbes might have found romance on a visit to the Blacker Mountains. <Spoiler Alert> He discovers a skeleton, the police are called, the widow arrives to identify the remains & over it, Andy was struck by the appeal of the widow, Daphne.</spoiler>

This is the third of a series but it serves well as a stand alone novel.

The characters are interesting: the unhuman (seriously large & strong) Inspector Hobbes, his housekeeper & excellent cook Mrs. Goodfellow, Sid the wealthy banker who is a vampire, Billy the multi-talented little person & Dreggs, the big black dog. It also has a full cast of dastardly villians: Sir Gerald Payne, Denny & Rupert. The bartender is Featherlight. This quote describes him well. “…attempted a look of wide eyed innocence that suited him as well as lipstick suits a fish.”

After a narrow escape of a bullet Andy speaks of the attractiveness of new experiences being less attractive than a rut.

Can Andy escape his own clumsiness? Will Sir Gerald Payne meet his comeuppance? Where does Kathy fit into Hobbes’ life?

I’m a happily married, retired mother of two adults & grandmother of four children. Adjusted at last to my move from WA state & all the green trees & abundant moisture to a different beauty of desert mountains in AZ. The winters in the Mojave Desert are bliss, the 127 degree summers are a test. It is a climate change for sure. I’ve learned to bloom where I’m planted. I must remember, plants have roots, people have legs & to use mine! I am an avid reader of almost all genres & usually have a baker’s dozen books being read at the same time. I craft greeting cards & enjoy sharing my creativity with family & friends. I also surf the internet looking for artists, photographs, quotes, etc. for my Joy is a Choice! Choose Joy Moment by Moment webpage. http://www.facebook.com/Joyisachoice I also make online jigsaw puzzles. http://www.facebook.com/Injoyspuzzlesforfun I'm a voracious reader & have started a book review page on facebook. I now have the freedom to read all night long, should I so choose & don't suffer the repercussions since I can nap the following day. It's the best time of my life.

  1. This is not a stand alone. INSPECTOR HOBBS AND CURSE IS # 2. I got from Netgalley earlier in the year. The reason I asked for this one. The first one is INSPECTOR HOBBS AND THE BLOOD which I haven’t read.

  2. Thank you for reblogging this.

    I described it as a stand alone novel even though I knew there were two others. It was my first introduction to Inspector Hobbes & his cast of characters & I didn’t feel lost as I have with other books in a series.
