Author(s): Spencer Quinn
A funny new detective novel featuring Bernie, a slightly down-at-heel PI; and his offsider, Chet, a dog, who is the captivating narrator of the story. Chet may have flunked out of police school, but he's just as much a detective as Bernie - superior, sometimes, in his insight into human foibles. In Dog on It, their first adventure, Chet and Bernie investigate the disappearance of a teenage girl who may or may not have been kidnapped, but who's definitely gotten herself mixed up with some very unsavoury characters.
Spencer Quinn lives on Cape Cod with his dog Audrey, and is hard at work on the next Chet and Bernie adventure.
