With each new book in the Chet & Bernie series, Spencer Quinn just keeps getting better and better at capturing the world from a canine perspective. The interplay between Chet and Bernie, co-partners in the Little Detective Agency, transcends all the great buddy pairings in detective fiction, whether on the big screen, television or print. What you have is an incredibly readable tale with all the elements one could possibly desire in mystery fiction - great prose mixed with fast-paced action and an element of suspense, counterbalanced with a touch of humor and an endearing affection for the nation within a nation, as Chet's kind are referred to throughout. Readers are torn between a desire of tearing through the book as quickly as possible and of going slow so as to savor every word and nuance. Whichever course the reader chooses, one is left feeling just tip-top at the end of the journey, as Chet would say, while anxiously awaiting the arrival of the next book in the series. Who could ask for more than this?

The past couple years August has brought added anticipation. I am more than ready for my beach vacation to relax with a pile of books. Also, there has been a new Chet and Bernie mystery to read and review. I was excited to recently receive the fourth installment of Chet's adventures a few days ago. THE DOG WHO KNEW TOO MUCH by Spencer Quinn went to the top of my mountainous reading pile. I would have gulped the novel down in one day, but a silly thing known as my day job at a public library got in the way. For readers who have not had the pleasure of reading Spencer Quinn's charming tales, Chet is a dog and the narrator. Bernie is a private investigator who always seems to fall for get rich quick schemes that even Chet knows are doomed to failure. Chet keen senses and skills do help track down the bad guys. Bernie has his own intuitive skills and bravery to overcome obstacles and save the day. With THE DOG WHO KNEW TOO MUCH, Bernie turns down an offer to sell Chet, but hires on as a bodyguard. The action quickly changes gears as the focus of Chet and Bernie's case becomes a young boy who goes missing at a camp. Is the boy a victim of bullies or is his father hatching a nefarious plan in a custody battle? As Chet and Bernie pursue the clues, they realize they could become crime victims themselves. As a dog, Chet takes all conversations literally, which provides comic relief and heartwarming charm. I am not usually a "dog person", but I could not help loving Chet from the start. The author adds some background to help those who have not read the earlier novels in the series, but you will not get the full effect unless you start with DOG ON IT. You won't want to miss the humor, suspense and pure fun. Spencer Quinn is the pseudonym for writer Peter Abrahams. I am sorry to say I have not read any books by Mr. Abrahams, but I will have to add them to my to be read pile very soon. You can be sure I will read the next Chet and Bernie story as soon as it is available.

How could anyone write a complicated mystery/crime story using first person narrative by a dog? Mr. Quinn has done it...it's BELIEVABLE! Amazing...body-language, dog-senses (I never get tired of Chet catching himself already in-the-act before he finishes his thoughts. Some of the time, before he begins to think), communicating with us humans and just simply SO VERY MUCH FUN!

While this book can stand on its own, references to cases in previous books make for a much better understanding. I love these books and will continue to read the series as long as it is fresh.

A 230 page very enjoyable .99 book and 4th in series of the Little Detective Agency partners, Bernie and Chet. An unscrupulous rival, a distressed mother and client, and a missing boy at a summer camp as told by the canine partner Chet, pure and simple. Adult situations, language, and humor are all part of this engaging tale.

I just could not get into this. I don't want to be unfair. I think I need to read the first book to get some understanding about the characters. I will try again after I see the first of the series. But for now putting it on the shelf.
