Sophie Gorrage and her trained sniffer dog Brownlow work as pet detectives. On any normal day they’ll track down all kinds of lost creatures, reuniting them with their grateful owners. But when the Cocker Spaniels of reality TV star Rouki Bennett are snatched from a Sussex common, Sophie is keen to take on the high profile case.


To her dismay Rouki doesn’t think that hiring the pet detectives will lead to the recovery of her beloved dogs. Before the demanding diva can decide, Sophie and Brownlow hear from chart-topping rapper Medalsum, whose dog Tasha has been grabbed during a violent carjacking in east London. He wants them to investigate.


In a brief period, two more canines in the public eye are stolen. Sophie suspects the cases are all related, and it appears she and Brownlow are dealing with a serial dognapper.


The pet detective duo has encountered dog thieves before, but those criminals were after fashionable breeds to sell on for quick profits, rather than targeting the dogs of celebrities. Why snatch their dogs though?


Sophie needs all her deductive skills and Brownlow his first class nose as they attempt to discover who is stealing the dogs, where they are taking them, and why. But just as they are getting close to their quarry, the stakes are dramatically raised, and the lives of both human and dog are put in peril.
