‘The Dog Sitter Detective’ by Antony Johnston

28th April 2023

Meet Gwinny, an unlikely bloodhound, and her four-legged friends determined to dig up the truth!

Penniless Gwinny Tuffel is delighted to attend her good friend Tina’s upmarket wedding. But when the big day ends with a dead body and not a happily-ever-after, Gwinny is left with a situation as crooked as a dog’s hind leg.

When her friend is accused of murder, Gwinny takes it upon herself to sniff out the true culprit. With a collection of larger-than-life suspects and two pedigree salukis in tow, she is set to have a ruff time of it…

The Dog Sitter Detective is the first in a new cosy crime series by Antony Johnston (Atomic Blonde) featuring dogs, murder mysteries, and plenty of laughs. 

PS: nothing bad happens to the dogs!

“A fun, witty page-turner and if Dawn French doesn’t play Gwinny in the TV series, there is no justice in the world” – Ian Moore

“A country house, a body in the library, a cast of dodgy wedding guests, and a prickly, dog-loving sleuth… Simply delightful” – Vaseem Khan
