Detective Gordon: The First Case


Almost from the first page, I was smiling. ‘Detective Gordon: The First Case‘ is a quirky, appealing, almost whimsical tale. It begins with Detective Gordon, forgoing his cakes and tea, to aid a squirrel whose nut haul has been thieved. Who could it be? With snow, hunger and the pains of old-toad age, Inspector Gordon realises that he needs an assistant. Luckily, a rather small one is at the scene of the crime…..

I love ‘The First Case‘ and can see the series being a great hit that will really engage emergent readers. I recommend it highly.

The First Case‘ is a  charming, convincing and beautifully structured opening book in the Detective Gordon series. Detective Gordon runs a tight ship, albeit with tea and cake breaks. Yet age, the theft of a squirrel nut haul and responsibilities create a need for an assistant; who will he choose?
