Mystery City is the sequel to Treasure Trove and is the second book in the Whitborough novel series. Mystery City is a light-hearted story with many threads, a large cast of people, two mischievous dogs and a rhino with depression. It combines comedy with tragedy, as well as mystery and chaos, to culminate in a tongue-in-cheek novel written in the style of popular writers of old. The first book in the Whitborough novels, Treasure Trove, documented the consequences of two men's bad decisions, which unleash a series of catastrophes that become too great to control. Mystery City continues the story, exploring the consequences of the events in Treasure Trove, covering the actions of the police, Home Office, and the Ministry of Defence. As the investigation into the events of the end of the first book get under way, new characters are drawn into the story, others are revisited and become more prominent in the narrative as the players try to uncover what has happened - and why. While the guilty parties go to ground, positioning themselves for what they assume must be the end game, the hunter become the hunted in this thrilling sequel.
