Review by

So far the best adventure in the series. Gone is the overt racism and political agendas. Here is Tintin and Snowy at their best, trying to solve a mystery. After witnessing a plane crash while out walking Tintin rushes to help only to be fired upon. So begins a chance across the English Channel through Britain to Scotland.<br/><br/>The main stand out in this book is the prominence of Snowy. Here he evolves from annoying follower to active adventurer, helping Tintin get out of (and sometimes into) trouble. And he also gets a taste for Scotch whisky. <br/><br/>I'm glad to see Tintin how I remember it. A man and his dog solving mysteries not involving a multi-coloured van and suspicious snacks or racist, colonial overtones.
