It's the 25th Century and after a cleaner unplugged his cryogenic freezing machine by accident, Detective Inspector Capstan awakes to find that he's been in a state of suspended animation for over four hundred years.
Space Police Book One: Attack of the Mammary Clans
Forced to adjust to life in the future, Detective Inspector Capstan finds himself reinstated as a policeman, and together with the great great great great grandson of his former subordinate, Sergeant Dewbush, he's put on the case of a missing cow.
Space Police Book Two: The Final Fish Finger
Detective Inspector Capstan and Lieutenant Dewbush have somehow managed to prevent the destruction of their home planet by the Mammary Clans. With a much deserved day off they decide to visit the British Museum where the last ever fish finger is the key exhibit. But it's about to be stolen, and the evidence leads them to Ganymede, a moon orbiting Jupiter, where they come face-to-face with the mysterious Gorgnome Obadiah.
Space Police Book Three: The Toaster That Time Forgot
As Detective Inspector Capstan becomes increasingly used to his new life in the future, he's asked to track down a mad and rather disgruntled scientist who's just escaped from a maximum security prison asteroid. But when the scientist in question threatens to travel back in time to punish the person he feels responsible for having had him locked up, it's up to Capstan and Dewbush to do whatever they can to stop him.
Following immediately on from the original Inspector Capstan series, this, the first three books in the brand new Space Police series, is a hilariously funny Sci Fi space comedy that's just perfect for fans of the humour of Douglas Adams' Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Terry Pratchett, and the Space Team books.
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT DAVID BLAKE'S WORK
"Absurd comedy of the style Douglas Adams used to grace us with has been in short supply since he left for what has been, I must say, an unreasonably long tea time. Though many have attempted to fill in during his absence, this work comes closer than anything I've since read without sounding like it's specifically trying to fill those sweaty, beer-soaked loafers."
Clifford Hall, Amazon.com
"This has all the characteristics to make it a cult classic and I can't wait to start the follow ups."

“Funny, quirky, absurd, and silly and altogether BRILLIANT.”
"Just read it, honestly, its great. Odd. But great."
"Very funny, unpredictable, good pace. I'm now reading his second book and so far just as good and just as unpredictable. If you have a sense of humour and want to be amused and entertained this is the writer for you."
