Darkus Knightley is back, but this time his private eye dad has gone walkies, leaving the family mutt Wilbur as his only partner in crime-solving. Fortunately, Wilbur is an ex-police dog, and Darkus's stepsister Tilly has leads of her own, because they'll need all their animal instincts for this case. Mysterious trained hounds are attacking senior policemen at the full moon. There are rumours of a werewolf on the loose at one of London's top beauty spots. Darkus uncovers a suspect so diabolical it makes the Hound of the Baskervilles look like a labradoodle. Will he and his father make it to the next full moon? The hunt is on for Knightley & Son.
