Inspector Hobbes and the Gold Diggers unhuman III (humorous mystery) by Wilkie Martin

Inspector Hobbes is back in his greatest adventure yet!

The Witcherley Book Company and Net Galley gave me the opportunity to read this book (thank you).  It has been published, so you can grab a copy now.  This is the third in the series, so check the other two out.

This is best one yet!  Hobbes takes Andy camping.  Andy should have known better, but it sounded like fun.  He finds sleeping on the ground isn't very comfortable but they have food and drink and the sights are beautiful, so he's content.  At least he is until he finds the dead body...

This is not a new dead body and the police are ready to write it off as an accident, but Inspector Hobbes isn't buying that.  He believes it was murder, so he begins to investigate.

Andy has no clue what's going on as usual.  Even when Hobbes gives him clues, it doesn't help.  He just bumbles along through the story being there for Hobbes.

This particular novel is enlightening because we finally get to find out what/who Hobbes is.  He's not human as such but he does have a background.  When the bank manager is a vampire, you know this book is enlivened with weird characters.

There's supposedly a gold mine going back into operation, there's murder and there's a bank robbery.  It's a busy story and it's good fun to read.  I enjoy how silly everything is.  It reminds me a bit of watching the Three Stooges.  Have a read, see what you think.
