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.

The author of the eternally popular No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency series for adults introduces the brother-and-sister team of Max and Maddy, who first turned up in England a decade ago. The children's parents run an ice-cream store, having been forced out of the detective business by the sinister Professor Claude Sardine. Max and Maddy are so good at the game of Clue that a banker from Switzerland invites the children to figure out why Swiss banks are being robbed—by dogs! Of course, Sardine is behind it all, and, of course, Max and Maddy, along with a faithful Saint Bernard, retrieve the money, although Sardine escapes until the next escapade. Featherweight yet fun fare for those just mastering chapter books. Max & Maddy and the Bursting Balloons Mystery is another title in the series. DeCandido, GraceAnne A.
