The Dog Who Knew Too Much by Spencer Quinn
Chet and Bernie are looking for a missing boy, but the case has a dark side...
Simon and Schuster allowed me to download an egalley of this book for review (thank you). It will be published the first week in September so if you've been waiting to visit with this duo, you'll get a new fix real soon.
This book sounded very interesting to me because it's written from the dog's point of view. If you've owned a dog (or a dog has owned you), you know they view the world differently and are often disappointed by their human's lack of understanding. Chet and Bernie have been together long enough to have a silent communication thing going on, but it's still difficult when things get complicated.
Bernie didn't want to take the case, but decided he needed the money. He sure didn't expect to be framed for murder. Or to have someone making a good effort to kill him. But he's not about to give up. And Chet is working real on hard on the case with him.
Just to read the dog's perspective makes this story worth reading. Bernie's a good guy, but there are times Chet is the one with the brains. How could you not enjoy a doggone good tale like this?
