Best friends, David and Bernice, turn Bernice's cubby house into the headquarters for The Walk Right In Detective Agency where they plan to solve the simple everyday mysteries which the police don't have time for. Problems such as finding out why Bradley's girlfriend has been avoiding him, where Mrs Posonivic's cat disappeared to, who took Mr Adam's undies from the washing line and why newspapers are disappearing from front lawns. But when Bernice and David's close friend Catherine discovers she is adopted, Bernice and David are given the trickiest case of all to find out about Catherine's birth parents. David, the obsessive note-taker and forensic science nut, and Bernice, the fussy perfectionist with a soft heart, join forces to not only solve these mysteries but also to try to make things right for their clients."--Provided by publisher
