About the Book

Meet RORY BRANAGAN – he eats bad guys for breakfast. Well, not ACTUALLY. But he IS the best detective in town. Second in a hilarious seven-book, comedy-crime series for readers of 8+

Hello. I am Rory Branagan. I am actually a detective.

One day, I will be the biggest detective in the world! And I will find out what happened to my Dad…

But today, a CRIME has been committed on my OWN road. Someone is stealing dogs!

What if they try to take Wilkins Welkin – my best friend who is also a sausage dog?

I need to find these stinking baddies and I need to stop them!

And THAT, friends, is what Rory does, with the help of his Accomplice Cassidy in a BOOMTASTIC adventure involving dogs, cats, a wheelie bin chariot, a brave and daring rescue and Mrs Welkin who fights crime in quite a surprising way. (Just you wait! Just you wait!). There are seven books in the RORY BRANAGAN (DETECTIVE) series and this is the second.
