Of Mutts and Men by Spencer Quinn

Chet the Dog makes stories about Bernie Little, PI, complete.  He adds to the story, usually saves Bernie, and he shares his thoughts with you, no matter how disjointed they may be.

Forge Books and Net Galley let me read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published July 7th.

They have been invited to see Wendell in his work location.  He's making records about the aquifers in the area.  When they get there they find him dead.  His throat has been cut.  Bernie picks a suspect and finds him with the dead man's wallet.  The suspect said he was dead when he got there and he wouldn't need his wallet, would he?  The cop  sent is none too brilliant and he books the guy and closes the case.  Bernie isn't satisfied and keeps looking and asking questions.

His girlfriend has found a new man and is getting married.  She's also working for a new company.  As he checks this new company he has new questions but no one will answer them. 

They meet one lady that says she likes dogs but Chet knows different.  She may be a professor but she's wicked.  She tries to seduce Bernie but Chet puts an end to that.  The lady is a killer and she plans to kill Bernie, too, but Chet takes care of her.

I really like Chet...
