Chet and Bernie are at it again in this second installment of the Chet and Bernie series by Spencer Quinn, entitled Thereby Hangs a Tail.
Like the first book, Dog On It, the narrator is Chet – the canine partner of Bernie Little of the Little Detective Agency. Bernie’s romance with reporter Susie Sanchez isn’t a smooth ride and she goes missing at a time when Bernie is hired to investigate threats made against a show dog, Princess.
When Princess and her owner are kidnapped, the mystery deepens. Once again, Chet finds himself in the middle of the action – and along the way his nose helps him to identify tasty treats to inhale.
Will Chet and Bernie find Susie alive? You’ll have to read the book!
I didn’t enjoy this story as much as the first book – but well worth a read for summer.
