‘Never, ever eliminate the impossible.’
Clarity Jones

When Mutt gets a job as an apprentice at the leading detective agency in the realm of Rillia, he’s not expecting to work with ex-princesses, snow gnoblins and the most notorious assassin of the White Hand Clan.

And he’s definitely not expecting to be thrown in the deep end on the agency’s toughest and most dangerous job yet – the mysterious case of the vanishing jester . . .

‘A laugh-out-loud funny and exciting adventure!’
Cressida Cowell on Frankie Best Hates Quests
