Description

Meet Knightley and Son - two great detectives for the price of one . . .

Darkus Knightley is not your average thirteen-year-old: ferociously logical, super-smart and with a fondness for tweed, detective work is in his blood. His dad Alan Knightley was London's top private investigator and an expert in crimes too strange for Scotland Yard to handle, but four years ago the unexplained finally caught up with him - and he fell into a mysterious coma. Darkus is determined to follow in his father's footsteps and find out what really happened. But when Alan suddenly wakes up, his memory is wonky and he needs help. The game is afoot for Knightley & Son - with a mystery that gets weirder by the minute, a bestselling book that makes its readers commit terrible crimes, and a sinister organisation known as the Combination . . .

A funny, warm, fantastical crime caper with an unlikely hero and a brilliant comic cast, perfect for fans of Sherlock and criminally good storytelling.

From Publishers Weekly

20 January 2014 – What if The Secret were evil? That's what 13-year-old Darkus Knightley and his father seem to be up against in Gavin's debut, in which a self-help book called The Code appears to be tied to a rash of criminal activity. Darkus adores his father, private investigator Alan Knightley, though it isn't always easy: Alan never betrays much emotion, and that's when he's conscious (he's been in a comalike trance for four years). Darkus has memorized his father's case files, which comes in handy after Alan suddenly awakens, ready to take on the Combination, a criminal organization he believes is "responsible for almost every unexplained crime, both great and small, in towns and cities across the country... and possibly even the world." Cerebral and humorless "disciples of reason," Darkus and Alan aren't the most engaging team, and the supporting cast is underutilized, especially the women, whether it's Darkus's mother, his revenge-driven stepsister, or his father's Polish housekeeper, who's the center of too many "jokes" about her stilted English. The action picks up toward the end, but it's a long haul to get there. Ages 10 12.
