Publisher's Summary

Spencer Quinn follows the critical success of his "New York Times best-selling Dog on It with this second mystery starring hapless private investigator Bernie and his four-legged partner Chet, a K-9 school dropout.
While Bernie continues his struggle to pay the bills, Chet - with his sharp nose and even sharper teeth - keeps bringing down the perps. Told from Chet's perspective and featuring the humorous ramblings of a dog, Thereby Hangs a Tail is another winner.

I laughed out loud throughout this book

Because I'm not a dog, I can't say for sure that the author and reader of this delightful story have perfectly nailed what goes on in a dog's mind. But it sure sounds like it. The reader, Jim Frangione, is fantastic. Everything about Frangione's delivery portrays Chet, the engaging animal who tells the story, just as I imagine Chet would sound to another dog.

This book is the second in the series. I suggest starting with the first in the series, but it's not impertive to do so. The second book is even funnier than the first. I hope this series continues for many dog years to come.

with Tail wagging ....

Having thoroughly enjoyed the first Chet & Bernie mystery, I was delighted to find the second, and I was not disappointed. Again, the character of Chet comes through and rings true -- dog lovers will recognize the mannerisms and behaviors in their own dogs. And even if he tends to repeat himself or wonder off into wild tangents, well, dogs do that! The mystery was a bit better this time, too.
