Wilkie Martin – Inspector Hobbes and the Gold Diggers

This is the third in the Wilkie Martin’s unhuman series, and it’s at least as much fun as the first two.

The story this time involves Cunning Plots involving a gold mine, gold stolen from a vampire-run bank, Hobbes’ long lost (and unexpected) American daughter turning up, Andy getting into even more trouble than normal and more of the usual bad jokes.

But there’s more: Andy is actually developing as a character, becoming more responsible (though just as clumsy as ever) and generally a better person.

Along the way, we learn a little more about Hobbes, and find that he’s not as unique as we might have thought. And Andy starts a whole new phase of his life…

The books are presumably doing reasonably well – there’s a new one coming out later this month, and I’ll be getting that too.
