About the Book

Sherlock Bones, the world’s greatest dog detective, and his trusty sidekick Dr Jane Catson are back for another crime-solving adventure.

When a wealthy dog spots a ghostly figure haunting her castle in the Catpathian Mountains, she come to Bones and Catson for help. Bones is convinced there’s no such things as ghosts … but even he’s at a loss to explain the creepy sounds and strange goings-on that he and Catson encounter after a night in the crumbling castle. Things get even more spooky when Bones is suddenly called back to London, leaving Catson to crack the case on her own. Can Catson unmask the ghost and escape the haunted castle in one piece?
