Sherlock Bones, the world’s greatest dog detective, and his trusty sidekick Dr Jane Catson are back for another crime-solving adventure.

Young readers aged 5+ will love the latest in this series of mysteries with beautiful artwork and illustrated puzzles – including search-and-finds, mazes and number riddles – all woven into the action, so the reader feels immersed in the exciting detective plot.

We love these interactive chapter books for newly independent readers. Packed with humour, fun and, best of all, puzzles galore, these are ideal for reluctant readers or anyone who enjoys a good mystery!


Bones and Catson are visiting New York when the local police chief asks for their help. The city is being terrorised by a masked villain who is threatening the police with chaos if they don't solve his riddles. After thwarting a fiendish plot in Manhattan, Bones and Catson are hot on the heels of the mysterious criminal on an epic coast-to-coast chase across USA. Along the way, they take in Niagrowl Falls and scale the faces of the great dog presidents on Mount Ruffmore until the adventure concludes at the walls of Aldogtraz prison in San Francisco.

But there’s a greater mystery to solve while all this is going on. Who is the villain? And how can they unmask them?

Tim Collins is originally from Manchester, but now lives near Oxford. He is the author of over thirty books including Wimpy Vampire, Cosmic Colin, Dorkius Maximus and Sherlock Bones. His books have been translated into over 30 languages and he has won awards in the UK and Germany.
