Inspector Hobbes and the Curse
Unhuman II

Available as ebook, paperback, hardback or audiobook.

Set in the Cotswolds, this is the next installment in the adventures of Inspector Hobbes, Mrs Goodfellow and Dregs, as narrated by the still disaster-prone Andy Caplet. It is a rip roaring, funny and moving tale of Andy's infatuation with a dangerously beautiful woman, starting off during investigations into sheep deaths and the mysterious disappearance of pheasants. These incidents appear to be connected to a rash of big cat sightings, and something horrible seems to be lurking in the woods. Is Andy cursed to be always unsuccessful in love, or is the curse something much darker, something that will arouse his primeval terrors?
This is the second in Wilkie Martin's unhuman series of fast-paced, comedy crime fantasy adventures, with lashings of great food.

'Love may be on the horizon, but beware something wicked this way comes'


This is narrated by the award winning and brilliant Tim Campbell.
