Bernie Little and his narrating sidekick Chet—“a canine Sam Spade full of joie de vivre” (Stephen King). Chet has smelled a lot of unusual things in his years as trusted companion and partner to Bernie, but nothing has prepared him for all the exotic scents he encounters in To Fetch a Thief, when an old-fashioned one-ring traveling circus comes to town. After Peanut, the headlining elephant, and her trainer go missing, the Little Detective Agency is hired to find out what has become of the duo. Soon Chet and Bernie are led south of the border in hot pursuit of some dangerously cool criminals and a decidedly uncooperative pachyderm. In The Dog Who Knew Too Much, Chet and Bernie take on the case of a boy who has vanished from a wilderness camp. The kid’s mother thinks her ex-husband snatched their son, but Chet’s always reliable nose leads Bernie in a new and dangerous direction. Meanwhile, matters at home get complicated when a stray puppy that looks suspiciously like Chet shows up. Affairs of the heart collide with a job that’s never been tougher, requiring our intrepid sleuths to trust each other even when circumstances—and a rival P.I.—conspire to keep them far apart.

    Super Another great adventure with Chet & Bernie! I'm not sure how you could top the combination of a solid detective story and a hilarious narrator, who just happens to be a dog.

    I like the premise that these are written from the Chet the dog's point of view. But I don't think I'll read them as an anthology again. One of the jokes is that Chet repeats himself quite a bit. ("Bernie - the smartest human in the room if I haven't already said so"). But by the time I was into the third volume (or book 5), I'd read a few key sentences a lot of times. Having said that, I found the mystery engaging, and the dog's point of view enlightening.

(If you strip away the presumed reasons we do things, some of the things we do are pretty odd.) I think Quinn captures the joy of having a dog in your life very well. The serial elements in the books that are Bernie's relationships with various people also progress, making these more than just a set of mysteries. All in all, I probably give the anthology edition a 3.5 star rating, rounded up to 4 stars.

    This book was a gift. After reading it to Olivia as a bedtime story I realize somehow it was overlooked that it was not for her age group. Nice to have a book that brings up the idea of being kind to "working animals" but there were too many scenes set in bars with prostitutes. There were joints, which I changed to cigarettes and Madames became bartenders. I don't think I would agree with Stephen King (who wrote a thumbs up on the book jacket) that this author is a master of suspense. I paraphra This book was a gift.

This book was hard to judge from its cover...blurb.

    Read the third book in the Chet and Bernie series, To Fetch a Thief. I get it but the voice of the dog narrator was unbearable for me: 1 Star; therefore will not be continuing with the series.
