This title is ninth in the brilliantly addictive series of murder mysteries by an acclaimed and popular writer. The wife of anchorman Dermot O'Flannery dies during a bungled burglary and the killer is never caught. Six months later Poppy and Graham are faced with a long, hot summer dog-walking for Poppy's next-door neighbour. This strange, parallel universe of Planet Dog seems a million miles away from the dreadful events that tore the news-reporter apart, but after a malicious prank is played on their fellow dog-walkers, Poppy and Graham find themselves crossing paths with Dermot O'Flannery. With lethal consequences...In 2010 Tanya Landman won the Red House Children's Book Award and the Leeds Children's Book Award for "Mondays Are Murder", the first title in the series.
