I was quite looking forward to reading this because of the unique storyline; a combination of private detective and modern-day social media marketing, but I approached the book with no small amount of trepidation, mainly because of some of the review comments, ‘Packed full of wit,’ ‘Dark humour,’ ‘Darkly funny’ and so on.

I scribble a bit myself; I’m a humorist and raconteur, and because of that people are always getting in touch saying, “Your stories are hilarious. We have the same sense of humour. Why don’t you read some of my stories? I’m sure you’ll love them.” So because of this, the descriptive reviews such as “Packed full of wit” and “Dark humour” were a little off-putting, and I couldn’t help thinking, “Here we go again.”

Well, let me tell you that I absolutely loved this book and I am smitten – is that a bit of a girly word? I quite like it all the same – I was smitten by the writing style of Nick Bryan. I loved Hobson and Choi! What a combination! Hobson with his acerbic aphorisms and innocent Choi, who just wants to be everyone’s friend. Hobson is coarse, blunt and on target. 16-year-old Choi is unblemished by the world and far too audacious for her own good.

Hobson’s answer to most situations is to punch people in the nose, or at least to threaten to. Choi’s answer is to give them a little awkward wave. “It was the kind of twee hand-flutter Hobson hated, but it seemed to strike a chord with these bastards …..”

Choi is on work experience, by the way, and Hobson takes on the role of guardian with no small measure of earnestness whilst marching her through some of London’s seediest pubs – “You’re under the legal drinking age, so you’ll fit in better than me” – and when questioning potential murderers.

16 year old, Angelina Choi is on her first day of a two week internship at Hobson's detective agency. Hobson is unsure what to do with her, so asks Choi to create a twitter account and to get him a few hundred followers.

Choi does a quick bit of reading about social media, and eventually tweets "If We get 400 followers, John Hobson will solve that nasty wolf-murder case for free! Fight the thing himself is he has to! #HobsonVsWolf"

Clearly it was a master stroke of social media management and it doesn't take long for the follower count to rise and when Hobson comes back he is shocked to find that he has to take on this murder case, when previously he had been dealing with missing people.

Despite it being arguable a tasteless piece of marketing Hobson along with Choi set out to solve this case, and solve it before the police can. The murders in question, appear to have been carried out by a wolf, or at least a large rabid animal, so a lot harder to solve than trying to work out motivation.

As Hobson and Choi progress with the case, there are more murders, and it starts to be a really interesting crime story.

Hobson and Choi could not be a more mis-matched pair if you tried. Hobson is older and set in his ways, and unsure about most modern technology. Choi is a teenager, tech savvy and very keen to learn.

The Girl Who Tweeted Wolf is a slightly humorous, very interesting first book in the Hobson & Choi series, and they are a detective team that I would like to know more about. Well paced story from a talented new writer.

There is also a bonus story included at the end featuring a location from The Girl Who Tweeted Wolf, which was an unexpected extra, but gave some useful back story. that I can't help may be useful to know in a future book.

Wow! I LOVED this book with a capital L! The girl who tweeted wolf is a fab introduction to the world of Hobson and Choi! I literally could not put this down. A great mix of adult crime, but with a crossover appeal to YA...just perfect.

The story is told from alternating perspectives by Hobson, the presentable clean shaven punctual detective with a slightly unpredictable fiery side and Choi, 16 year old intern on work experience for two weeks. On her first day of work experience in an office the size of a rich mans cupboard Hobson asks Choi to set up a twitter account for his detective business and get him followers. What Hobson doesn't bank on is Choi's imagination and marketing skills quickly gaining followers by marketing Hobson as a detective who will solve the current Wolf murders for free if he gets 400 followers and quickly establishing a twitter trend of #hobsonvswolf. With Hobsons followers going through the roof the hunt for the murderer begins!

I loved the characters in this book so much. The determination and willingness yet slightly frightened Choi. The head strong, twitter hating Hobson who loves a good old munch on a Subway (yummy) and once hit someone off a bike so that the bike kept going and knocked over a suspect. Some dead bodies and a brilliant range of suspects including the best suspect name ever an angry character called Violet Vole - love it!

I also loved the relationship between Hobson & Choi. As the book progresses Choi very often puts Hobson in his place although Hobson just ignores the advise and ploughs on anyway! It gives a kind of comic feel to the book and story. The work well together on the page and are both individual.
