Humorous crime fantasy The story is narrated by Andy, jobless, broke and homeless he is taken in by Inspector Hobbes and his housekeeper Mrs Goodfellow. Both treat him somewhat like a small helpless child. After reading an article in the local paper about a sheep being killed then a large number of pheasants also go missing, Hobbes decides it’s time he started investigating these strange happenings. First stop is Bob Nibblet the local poacher. Bob, known to have a drink or two, tells them he saw a large black cat like a panther. Their investigation now turns to whether the black cat sighting could possibly be true or is there something more sinister stalking the woods. Follow Hobbes and Andy as they battle through unlikely suspects as another death occurs. What a great, funny read! The competent laidback Inspector Hobbes and his bumbling sidekick Andy! Every good country cop needs a sidekick. Someone to bounce those laughable jokes off! Hobbes and Andy are an excellent duo. The prose is in a friendly relaxed style, like a friend telling a story. The reader really gets to know Andy in this story as he fills you in on little episodes from his past. If you think you’ve had a bad day, spend a day in Andy’s shoes. Had me chuckling non stop! The story was well thought out and it all pulled together at the end to finish well. I’d recommend it to anyone that enjoys a good crime novel with a lot of laughs. I also learnt a few new words ‘wolfifesting’ being by far my favourite. Inspector Hobbes, himself, is intriguing and now I really need to go back and read Wilkie Martin’s first Inspector Hobbes novel to get a greater insight into this character.
