I enjoy puns, and, as always, the book is full of them. The slapstick physical comedy still doesn't work well for me on the printed page, though with my somewhat immature sense of humor, I suspect I'd crack up if I were viewing a live version of it.
After i finished the first book, though I liked it, I debated a bit before getting the second one. I liked the second one even more, and this time, got the third one immediately after finishing it. This third book was even better, and I bought the 4th one before finishing the third. These books get better, continue to make me laugh, and I'm liking the characters more and more with each novel.
It feels like the pacing was better but that might be due to a number of factors. I still can't believe I'm enjoying a series from an unknown writer as much as I am. For the money you won't find a better series out there.
That's not to say the writing is without flaws but in some ways those flaws make things that much more believable and the rest comes down to editing. Overall the whole of the Inspector Hobbes series is amusing and the tropes are done well. I'm off to grab the next pretty much straight away.

I liked Andy as a character, but I really loved Hobbes and I hope Wilkie Martin decides to write more of his adventures, maybe focused on other sidekicks as by the end of this novel Andy's life has improved for the better, though I'm sure he can still be very involved in Hobbes's investigations. These books are charming, delightful, funny reads, inventive and warm-hearted, packed full of entertaining minor characters and set in a suitably silly but strangely authentic-seeming Cotswold environment, a little bit Carry On Cotswolds but with moments of real tension and conflict, and some genuine character development.
