Their search for clues takes them into the desert to biker bars and other exotic locals, with Chet's highly trained nose leading the way. Both Chet and Bernie bring their own special skills to the hunt, one that puts each of them in peril. But even as the bad guys try to turn the tables, this duo is nothing if not resourceful, and the result is an uncommonly satisfying adventure.
With his doggy ways and his endearingly hardboiled voice, Chet is full of heart and occasionally prone to mischief. He is intensely loyal to Bernie, who, though distracted by issues that Chet has difficulty understanding -- like divorce, child custody, and other peculiar human concerns -- is enormously likable himself, in his flawed, all-too-human way.

Two dewclaws up!
A fun listen with an interesting twist on the typical detective novel. OK, it's no Arthur Conan Doyle, but there are some twists and turns that keep it interesting. But what makes the story is the narrator, Chet. I share my home with a pack of "his guys", as Chet would say, and he seems like one of my big goofy ones ("Oops, was that me barking?") I wish I knew what my dogs were thinking sometimes, and with Chet's stream-of-consciousness thought process and memories that come and go, he seems like a pretty good approximation. A good "tail" for long drives and long distance running.

In my opinion, this book captures the essence of what we love about dogs. I don't have a dog, but I've been around many of them and I enjoy their different personalities and antics. Jim Frangione,the narrator of this recorded book, makes this enjoyable tale about a dog and his master a real delight. Spencer Quinn,the author, writes convincingly as Chet the Dog, but Frangione really brings him to life. I laughed out loud many times. Highly recommended.
