Description
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.

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

* "Gadgets galore, action-filled brushes with death, and show-stopping settings . . . A totally satisfying third round of bonding à la Knightley (you know, with kidnapping, sleuthing, disguises, and murder)." — Kirkus Reviews, starred review
* "Gavin has created a fun 'Sherlock Holmes'–style adventure, with modern twists and a bit of humor. The combination is skillfully done. This is a quick and fun read; a great choice for choice looking for a new mystery to dive into." — School Library Journal, starred review, on Knightley & Son

* "Heroes, villains and settings are all fully realized through proficient description, and contemporary technology gives way to sheer brainpower. A rousing page-turner with one fault: It ends." — Kirkus Reviews, starred review, on Knightley & Son
