Inspector Hobbes and the Curse by Wilkie Martin

Inspector Hobbes and Mrs. Goodfellow are not exactly human.  Dregs is a dog, so he's OK.  But Andy is not quite sure about the other two.  He makes no complaints, though.  They are letting him live there and feed him excellent food.  He may have questions and concerns but he doesn't voice them.  After all, he has no place else to go...

The Witcherley Book Company and Net Galley allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It has been published, so check with your local bookstore for a copy.

It seems the good inspector has a wild side himself, as well as an exceeding long life so far.  He also has some very unusual habits.  He's very good at tracking things, though.  Andy just follows along and hopes for the best.

Andy doesn't know what to believe when folks start turning up dead, looking like they have been ravaged by a wild animal.  One animal in the woods is thought to be a black panther.  Hobbes tells him there's a werewolf there, too.  I wouldn't be playing in those woods, thank you!

In the meantime, Andy is dating and getting quite attached to the new lady in town.  If only her big brother wasn't so possessive...

This is a far out fantasy full of odd characters and action.  How often do you have conversations with skeletons?  I found it entertaining because I like outlandish fantasy.  I'm still not sure what Hobbes is but he's not all human.  In his line of business, that can be an asset.

I'll be watching for their next adventure.  After all, Andy lost his woman and life must go on.  You know Inspector Hobbes will be up to the next case that arrives.

Happy reading.
