Knightley & Son: 3 of a kind

Publisher: Bloomsbury

Knightley and his teenage son Darkus are clever detectives in the style of Sherlock Holmes. They even wear tweed!

When their housekeeper Bogna is kidnapped, Knightley, Darkus and his stepsister Tilly set off to rescue her.

The group quickly discover that they are being led into a dangerous game by an evil criminal organisation - The Combination. They follow a trail that takes them to Hollywood, Area 51, Las Vegas, and a confrontation with a supervillain whose identity is a shocking surprise.

This action-packed adventure combines humorous characters with parent issues, cutting-edge technology and narcolepsy. It would be best to read this instalment after the first two episodes in the series.
