Ex-policeman Colin Butcher had just set up his own pet detective agency. It was running smoothly but he realized he needed a partner. Enter Molly, an unloved and unwanted cocker spaniel rescued from a classifieds website. Clever and charismatic, she melts Colin's heart, the two are soon inseparable.

Molly & Me will take readers along some of the most dramatic pet rescues Colin and Molly have performed. From the search for Pablo the ginger tom who's kidnapped from a sleepy Devonian village, to Molly’s near deathly snakebite and to unearthing a treasure trove of stolen jewels in a north London wood, Colin and Molly's work takes them around the country.

This book gives a heartwarming insight into the country’s unbreakable bonds with their pets, the important connections we feel with them and how it feels to lose one. Pet + Detective: Colin's police experience plus Molly's uncanny nose for crime makes them the perfect pet detective duo, retrieving lost cats for desperate owners across the country. Molly & Me is a quintessentially British story full of eccentric characters and everyday heroes.

Following high-ranking careers with the Royal Navy and Surrey Police, Colin Butcher established The UK Pet Detectives in 2005. It has since become the market leader in the investigation of crimes against animals, and each year recovers hundreds of lost and stolen pets. An expert in the field of pet detection, Colin's vast experience as a crime investigator has given him an unrivalled insight into the behaviour of missing dogs and cats.
