Having secured an advanced readers copy by winning the quiz contest on the Chet the Dog blog, it is indeed an honor and a privilege to post the very first review. Needless to say, it is one terrrific read (with apologies to you know who). The plotting, character development, suspense, and moral tone (highlighting the problem of exotic animal smuggling) will grab you from the first page and take you for the ride of your life through the rest of the book. And parts of it are just laugh out loud, fall on the floor hilarious, including one or two real surprises (at least for some). Spence's ability to channel Chet as the narrator offers a POV so totally unique, yet so believable, as Chet draws you in by his musings on human foibles, linguistic phraseology, and his ability to partially recall events of the past concerning things gone awry, probably because of Chet himself (or sometimes Bernie). And the evolving relationship between Chet and Peanut, the kidnapped circus elephant at the center of the plot, is both poignant and sweet. Gripping and exciting throughout, but leaving you feel really good by the end; can't ask for more than what Spence has delivered here. With the Little Detective Agency on the job, perps beware -- it will soon be jump suit time and breaking rocks in the hot sun! Thank you Spence, Bernie and Chet for once again saving the day and providing a tale so tantilizing and fun.

I was very disappointed that the author incorporated a homosexual couple into the book. I don't like agendas being put into stories. I loved the first two books and was happy to share them with neighbors, however, I would have been embarrassed to share this book with young people or with Christians. I didn't even finish the entire story once it started talking about a homosexual couple. I am so sorry I had to toss it in the fireplace.

I will purchase the next Chet and Bernie book with the hopes of being able to enjoy it and pass it on to friends and neighbors.
