'I applied my super-sniffer to the job. The strange dog scent was stronger. That meant the strange dog was in the dog den. Had the dog-nappers struck already? Were they planning a wave of dognappings all over Doggeroo? When Jack and Sarge move to the town of Doggeroo, Jack soon notices that things are going missing. He doesn't mind when an old boot from the yard disappears, but when his squeaker bone, dinner, dinner bowl and blanket vanish, Jack knows that something sinister is afoot. Jack Russell is a dog-detective with a nose for whodunit and, though he is often hampered by the well-meaning but bumbling 'Red', he always manages to sniff out his quarry in the end.

About the Author:

Darrel and Sally Odgers were both born in Tasmania in 1957, and have been married since 1979. They have two grown up children, James and Tegan. Their first book together was published in the 1990s. The Jack Russell series is their most successful collaboration so far, and they thank their inspiration, Ace, for that: " She was lively, opinionated, busy, and always curious. She loved swimming, and playing ball games of her own invention. We were out walking one day and Ace, as usual, was sticking her nose into everything. "She's a real detective,"said Darrel. We spent the rest of the walk planning the adventures of a dog detective! When we wrote up the proposal for the series, we had Ace sign it with a paw print, for luck. It must have worked, because the Jack Russell: Dog Detective series has grown to eight books, with more to come."
