Awards for Knightley and Son Spring 2014 Kids IndieNext Pick, ABA Indies Introduce Pick, Kirkus Reviews Best Children's Books of 2014

London's Youngest detective is back . . . Darkus Knightley, tweed-wearing, megabrained, fiercely logical thirteen-year-old investigator of the weird, was just getting used to having his private-eye dad back in his life. Then Alan Knightley went off radar again, leaving Darkus with the family mutt, a traumatized ex-police dog, as his only partner in crime-solving.

Now a mysterious canine conspiracy is howling for the attention of Knightley & Son. Shadowy trained hounds are attacking policemen at the full moon. Family pets are being mauled by a beast at a top London tourist spot. And two curiously alert canines seem to be watching Darkus's house. No one is using the word "werewolf"--yet--but it doesn't take Sherlock Holmes to work out that someone or something sinister is messing with the minds of London's dog population. Will our intrepid father-son duo make it to the next full moon?

A criminally good detective adventure, perfect for fans of Sherlock and sharp-minded sleuths of all shapes and sizes.
