I’ve just finished reading this book, the third in the series of the Chet and Bernie murder mysteries.
As with the previous two books, I loved reading about Bernie and Chet’s latest investigation, from Chet’s point of view with Chet as the narrator.
In this tale, a lead trainer and an elephant go missing from the circus when they are in town. Bernie and Chet’s services are retained by the missing trainer’s partner, a clown with the circus.
I didn’t like a scene involving a snake, but other than that – it was a thoroughly enjoyable read.
I have lots more Chet and Bernie mysteries to get through. Author Spencer Quinn is prolific writer – and I only have so much time to read books and magazines as I run a business.

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.
I’ve just finished reading Dog On It by Spencer Quinn and happily recommend it for all my followers.
This book was a New York Times bestseller and is the first in the “Chet and Bernie” series of mysteries. The narrator of the story is Chet, canine partner of Bernie Little of the Little Detective Agency.
Chet rides shotgun in Bernie’s old, but loved, Porsche. He is an intelligent dog, with interesting observations about human traits and habits. He’s also got a sense of humor.
In this story, Bernie is hired to investigate the disappearance of a teenage girl. Along the way, Chet is kidnapped and narrowly escapes death; he’s critical to solving the case.
This book was both an entertaining and relaxing read. Highly recommended.
I’ve just purchased Thereby Hangs a Tail, the next in the Chet and Bernie series. Can’t wait…
