Max and Maddy Twist have a flair for solving crimes. You might even say it's in their blood. That's because their parents once ran a thriving detective agency until the notorious Professor Claude Sardine shut them down. But now Max and Maddy are ready to pick up where their parents left off.

When a Swiss businessman asks for their help in catching a bank robber, Max and Maddy can't wait to take on the case. But little do they expect to find themselves hot on the trail of a gang of thieving St. Bernards

Bestselling novelist Alexander McCall Smith introduces readers to a delightfully funny new set of heroes and the tricky villain who's always keeping them on their toes.
