Perplexing puzzles, mind-boggling mazes and cracking codes feature in this series of stories about a pair of guinea-pig detectives - Coco Carlomagno, the easily-startled Chief of Police, and his more sensible cousin, Alberta.

Coco is the well-respected, if somewhat easily startled Chief of Police in Buenos Aires. Alberta is his more sensible cousin. Together they crack the cases that confound this puzzling city.

Alberta is helping her cousin Coco, the Chief of Police, solve a top-secret case. In the beautiful Japanese garden of Buenos Aires, one daffodil will not stop drooping. Is someone trying to destroy the serene beauty of this oriental oasis?
