Just finished reading this one with my son. A friend gave it to us, and even though it's the fifth in a series, it was easy to follow and understand. My son really liked the mystery and now wants to go back and get the previous four books. Anything that involves mystery and dogs is bound to be a hit in my house. We loved the relationship between McGrowl and Thomas. Who wouldn't want to have the ability to telepathically communicate with his dog?!?
