    The Disappearance of Polly Dixon and The Persistent Pet Napper. 
    "Funny and insightful." 
     
    Best friends Paige and Sophie are putting their psychology skills to the test – they've opened an investigations agency. 
      
    They'll be a detective duo like no other! 
      
    At least, that's what Paige believes. No one else thinks they'll make something of this new and unexpected venture. But why wouldn't they be a success? Paige understands the mechanics of the mind and Sophie can read behaviour like a book. They're a little light on investigative experience or, erm, practical life skills, but they make up for it with intelligence, tenacity, and diligence. 
      
    After a couple of frustrating months without even a whiff of a client, they finally get a break. Someone is kidnapping pets, and the head of the Remuera Ladies Bridge Club wants them to find out who. As they start investigating with gusto, the possibility of another case appears. Nineteen-year-old Polly Dixon has disappeared. 
      
    Can they prove everyone wrong and find the missing girl?
