Christopher lived with his mum and dad in a quiet neighbour hood with his neighbours Mr and Mrs Shears.
Christopher gets told by his dad that his mum is in hospital because she is not doing very well and feels very ill.
Christopher's dad says that her mum has sadly passed away and christopher could not see her otherwise he could become ill.
One day when Christopher was coming back from school.Suddenly,he saw his favourite dog dead in Mrs shears garden, so he went over to see it and it had a garden fork inside it. It was from their garden he would start his investigating!!!
First he asked all of his neighbours if they had seen anything suspicious around town but none of them had.
Back at home his dad said that he can not do anymore investigating ever again.
