Then one morning their mother fails to appear for breakfast. When the gatekeeper at Grant's factory tells Dora that no one by the name of Harriet Bentley has ever worked there, the children grow worried. Knowing that their mother wouldn't deliberately deceive them, they enlist the help of a neighbour, a former policeman, to help them investigate.
