The Arduous Case of the Lost Princess, A Hercules Potato Adventure
Charlotte Easter Earl, author
Hercules Potato, famed detective and Belgian Griffon, sets out with his bright and sporty assistant, Tess of the Derby Villas, on what seems a straightforward case. Their purpose is to help a lost Borzoi retrace her path to her home and her true human hero before time and the forces of nature destroy the four scents that are their only clues. Their case is hounded by misadventure and peril, but they find help in unexpected quarters. Hercules Potato insists that all mysteries must be solved exclusively with the scents and the logic, and the tale unfolds through an exploration of different philosophical schools, references to classic literature, and a good deal of quirky humour.
