Sniff Them Out, Brownlow!

Meet the cast of characters from Judy's latest novel.


Brownlow is a rescue dog who has been trained by private detective Sophie Gorrage to use his nose to find lost and stolen pets. The inseparable duo live in Sussex, England but their work sometimes takes them further afield as they track down missing animals.

You’ve reached the office of Brownlow & Gorrage.


On her desk in the Brownlow & Gorrage office, Sophie is trying to work out the whereabouts of a missing cat called Gregory. He’s a cat who has outsmarted the duo on previous occasions. He’ll go missing from home, the pet detectives will be called in to investigate, but while they’re still in the midst of their enquiries, Gregory will turn up looking smug. They’ve no idea where he’s been and he’s certainly not telling.

Lady Champignon (left) and Mr Merrytrees (right) are two Cocker Spaniels owned by interior design guru Rouki Bennett. When they are dognapped while being exercised by Rouki’s dog walker Carl, Sophie desperately wants to investigate, if Rouki will actually let her, that is.
