Max & Maddy and the Chocolate Money Mysteryby Alexander. McCall Smith
Synopses & Reviews
Max and Maddy Twist have a flair for solving crimes. You might even say it's in their blood. That's because their parents once ran a thriving detective agency--until the notorious Professor Claude Sardine shut them down. But now Max and Maddy are ready to pick up where their parents left off.
When a Swiss businessman asks for their help in catching a bank robber, Max and Maddy can't wait to take on the case. But little do they expect to find themselves hot on the trail of a gang of thieving St. Bernards!
Bestselling novelist Alexander McCall Smith introduces readers to a delightfully funny new set of heroes--and the tricky villain who's always keeping them on their toes.
Meet Max and Maddy Twist: brother and sister and budding detectives. In The Chocolate Money Mystery, Max and Maddy are called upon to help figure out who is robbing Swiss banks. In The Bursting Balloons Mystery, somebody is sabotaging a hot-air balloon race. In both books, the sinister Professor Sardine seems to be involved. But can Max and Maddy make their case?
