"If we get 400 followers, John Hobson will solve that nasty wolf-murder case for free! Fight the thing himself if he has to! #HobsonVsWolf!"
Angelina Choi was only trying to drum up some Twitter followers and make a good impression on her first day interning at John Hobson's one-man detective agency.
But the campaign went viral and now they have a murder to solve, no money coming in, and an unwilling Hobson faced with battling some enormous beast.
With both follower and body counts rising, can they crack the case without offending everyone or being eaten by a huge dog?

A different take on the classic private eye mystery. The characters of Hobson and 16 year old Choi are a perfact match for each other. The author's descriptions of settings and people are so real it feels like your there watching the story unfold.
You people should just read this novel yourselves and write you own review on this novel. I really enjoyed reading this novel very much so. ShelleyMA
