The fourth entry in the irresistible New York Times bestselling mystery series featuring canine narrator Chet and his human companion Bernie—”the coolest human/pooch duo this side of Wallace and Gromit” (Kirkus Reviews).Combining suspense and intrigue with a wonderfully humorous take on the link between man and beast, Spencer Quinn’s exceptional mystery series has captured widespread praise since its New York Times bestselling debut, Dog on It. The Dog Who Knew Too Much marks the duo’s triumphant return in a tale that’s full of surprises.
Bernie is invited to give the keynote speech at the Great Western Private Eye Convention, but it’s Chet that the bigshot P.I. in charge has secret plans for. Meanwhile Chet and Bernie are hired to find a kid who has gone missing from a wilderness camp in the high country. The boy’s mother thinks the boy’s father—her ex—has snatched the boy, but Chet makes a find that sends the case in a new and dangerous direction. As if that weren’t enough, matters get complicated at home when a stray puppy that looks suspiciously like Chet shows up. Affairs of the heart collide with a job that’s never been tougher, requiring our two intrepid sleuths to depend on each other as never before. The Dog Who Knew Too Much is classic Spencer Quinn, offering page-turning entertainment that’s not just for dog-lovers.[dcs_head top=”0″ color=”#666666″] [/dcs_head]
As Spencer Quinn, Peter Abrahams writes the Chet and Bernie mystery series, the first of which, DOG ON IT, reached #7 on the New York Times bestseller list. The second Chet and Bernie book, THEREBY HANGS A TAIL, came out in January 2010, and was also a New York Times bestseller, as was the third, TO FETCH A THIEF (September 2010). In a starred review, Publishers Weekly said To Fetch A Thief “radiates pure comedic genius via Chet’s doggy bright narrative. You don’t have to be a dog lover to enjoy this deliciously addictive series.” Book four in the series, THE DOG WHO KNEW TOO MUCH, will be published in September 2011. Abrahams lives with his family on Cape Cod. Chet the Dog has a website – www.chetthedog.com, and that Peter guy does too – www.peterabrahams.com.[dcs_head top=”0″ color=”#666666″] [/dcs_head]
