This story is a combination of Sherlock Holmes mysteries, exciting adventures, and a bit of humor. Both boys and girls will be riveted as the crime and solution unfold.
A bit like the bumbling Keystone Cops of silent films, these characters stumble their way through investigating the theft of a Golden Haggis in rural Scotland. The humor mounts as the characters develop. The characters’ names are often an indication of their traits. For instance, Scotland Yard officer Sergeant Widebottom reveals that he is a constant eater and seems a bit dim; however he does help the investigation in unusual ways. The thief turns out to be royalty, but even that doesn’t end up being the plot’s thickest moment.
Fresh and original, Mike Blyth writes a colorful tale of thievery and intrigue. He cleverly describes the characters, scenes and action with narrative set to enhance the readers’ vocabulary while whizzing along in the adventure. The vibrant illustrations by Mike Motz are modern and easily compete with the superior visual characteristics of video games designers.
This book is written to match the life-experiences and vocabulary of the pre-teen age group so well that it is hard to guess that the author, Mike Blyth, is a retired Royal Marine Commandos Major and currently a COO of a risk management corporation. His humor pokes through at the most unexpected times. His characters have enough personality to be real for his audience. The action moves right along so parents may catch their young readers under the covers with a flashlight to finish one of the Inspector Rumblepants’

About The Author
Mike Blyth, a retired Royal Marine Commandos Major, is presently the chief operating officer of a risk management company supporting government and commercial projects in high-risk environments. He has worked or lived in over forty-three countries, most of them rather dodgy in nature. He also published a book on security management and commanded more than 650 security personnel in Iraq.
Mike is married to Kristen, who is retired from the US Navy and frequently points out she has a much higher IQ than her husband. They have five children together. Mike enjoys writing the Inspector Rumblepants books every time his wife gives birth in order to escape changing diapers (which happens rather frequently).
