Inspector Hobbes and the Curse: Comedy Crime Fantasy Romance (unhuman 2) (Hardcover)
While the unhuman Inspector Hobbes investigates big cat sightings, slaughtered sheep, and the mysterious disappearance of pheasants, he is accompanied by the disaster-prone Andy Caplet. When Andy falls at the feet of Violet King, a dangerously beautiful woman, it seems his luck might change, even though he throws up on her shoes. For some reason she takes a shine to him, treating him to dinner in a romantic restaurant, where everything goes brilliantly until a man's throat is torn out.
Violet's millionaire brother, Felix, warns him off. Yet Felix may not be Andy's worst problem, for something nightmarish seems to be lurking in the Woods. Can Andy stand up for himself, or is he cursed to be always unlucky in love? Why is Dregs, the delinquent dog, so nervous?
This is the second in Wilkie Martin's unhuman series of comedy cosy mysteries with a dash of fantasy and lashings of good food.
