Publisher's Summary

Receiving unwanted attention after foiling an armed robbery, the unhuman Inspector Hobbes takes a long-overdue camping holiday with Andy, his accident-prone friend, and Dregs, the delinquent dog. In the bleak and dangerous Blacker Mountains, Andy stumbles across something shocking before falling for an attractive widow, while Hobbes wonders why an old gold mine has reopened.

On their return to the sleepy Cotswold town of Sorenchester, Hobbes is dumbfounded when Kathy, a reminder of his hippy days, turns up on the doorstep with her baggage. Since Hobbes has to solve a gold robbery and contemplate some perfectly ordinary rocks, Andy must entertain Kathy while trying to protect his new love from a monstrous opponent working for the sinister Sir Gerald Payne. Despite his usual blunders and an inability to throw straight, Andy displays genuine courage.

Can Andy survive dinner with a vampire? Can Hobbes recover the gold? And what is Kathy's relationship to Hobbes?

This, the third in Wilkie Martin's Unhuman series of fast-paced comedy crime fantasies, will reveal all.

Unhuman Book 3: Andy Grows a Pair

Loved it. I really enjoyed this one more than the second one. Finally Andy gets a little more development and things start going in his favour. The ending left me with a smile and even a little choked up.

I was hoping this would last me a bit longer as I usually only listen during my commute but I was so invested I kept listening to it at work and it didn't last too long then.

I did find the general plot pretty simplistic and managed to suss out what was going on less than midway through but I was still hooked on the characters and was gratified to know I was right.

Love the narrator and his american accent for one character is hilarious.

The next one is already queued up and I'm excited for it.

Creepy, Kooky, Mysterious and Quirky!!!

Creepy, Kooky, Mysterious and Quirky!!!  Hobbes and Andy are at it again!  Hobbes takes a vacation to the Blacker Mountains and Andy goes with him – they are going to rough it … and of course, poor Andy finds himself smack dab in the middle of a murder case, falling for a smart and beautiful widow, dinner with a vampire, and struggling to maintain his space in Hobbes’ home!

Hobbes is investigating a series of bank robberies, a reopened gold mine, ducking reporters, and dealing with Kathy, his alleged daughter who hails from America.  All the while, Hobbes keeps order and keeps Andy from getting hurt too badly!

The fun and action are non-stop.  One cannot help but love the slapstick humor of Andy and the puns of Hobbes. Andy’s growth in this book is far more than previous ones; one thing is certain – he is loyal and cares greatly for Hobbes, Mrs. Goodfellows, and Dregs.

Wilkie Martin delivers yet another delightful book of puns, crazy slapstick humor, and new interesting and dangerous characters! Each book is better than the last, new twists and character growth.  I enjoyed the first book and the second one as well but this one is even funnier and more dangerous for Andy and Hobbes than any of the others.  I also find that Sid, the Vampire Banker is downright lovable!

Tim Campbell’s performance is spot on!  Each character has their own voice and personality that shines due to Campbell’s amazing talent.  Campbell becomes each character, reflecting them and their personality accurately throughout the book.  Love to hear him perform the Hobbes series.  I cannot imagine another voice as Andy or Hobbes!  This was a great listen - it has everything, fun, mystery, intrigue, romance and of course unhumans!

There no issues with the quality or production of this audiobook.

One of the BEST series out there!

High re-readabilty and thoroughly entertaining! Terry Pratchett had a love child with Rex Stout! Punny satire with an excellent mystery solved by a great cast. Perfectly read. The only problem is I have read all of them at least twice and craving more please!!

Very good book

This book delivers exactly what it is supposed to. A cozy mystery with humour and and easy enjoyable listen. The first book took me a bit to get into, but I’m glad I stuck with it. Narrator is very good as well.

The worst in the series so far

About two thirds of the story plodded. The pathetic-ness is at an all-time high. At times I have to stop listening because it makes me sick.
Others have assured me that Book 4 is an improvement.

I almost quit the series but have pushed forward. I'm writing this after finishing and starting Book 4. That Book so far is a 2 star, compared to the 1 star I'm giving this.

The last 1/3 or 1/4 of the story actually has some legs.

Andy is as stupid as ever!

I love the characters but Andy the main character was getting on my nerves with his stupidity and lack of a job. The ending was great though and I'm glad I finished it. I just wish the author wouldn't make Andy so stupid.

Same great characters, easy plot to solve.

Love the characters in this series! The puns and play on words has me grinning while I sit in traffic!
At first, I disliked the new character, Kathy... but she grew on me, much like mold on cheese, and by the end of the book, she became a likeable character (at least in my mind.)
We get a bit more of an insight as to what Hobbes actually is, other than not-quite-human; Andy still seems to attract things that will cause him physical damage, but he muddles through as he often does!
This mystery seemed a bit easy to figure out, but perhaps it is meant to be that way. I still enjoyed the story and the narrator!
