Inspector Hobbes and the Gold Diggers (2014) Wilkie Martin

The third Inspector Hobbes / Unhuman book.

Andy Caplet is still living with Hobbes, and slowly (slowly) becoming a better human. Hobbes might not be human, but he’s good at being human.

We finally discover things about Hobbes!

‘I expect,’ said Sid, with a glance at Hobbes, ‘that Wilber told you part of the story, just enough to get you worried.’

‘Would I do anything like that?’ said Hobbes, trying to look innocent.

‘Yes,’ I said, nodding, ‘you would. Umm … Wilber?’

‘It’s short for Wilberforce,’ said Sid.

Hobbes remains Hobbes, with his super fast reflexes and healing ability and terrible sense of humor.

‘What do you mean private land? We’re not trespassing are we?’

‘Only in the legal sense,’ said Hobbes.

Andy is visiting his parents when Hobbes makes the news–chasing gold thieves. Andy hurries back to Hobbes house, to discover that the press really want to know more about Hobbes, and are prepared to sit outside his house for days until they learn more.

So Hobbes, Andy, and Dregs head off to the mountains for some late fall camping.

This is another perfectly fine story. The mystery seemed to hang together a little less well for me than the previous stories, but it was interesting and distracting, so it was fine.
