Dog on It: A Chet and Bernie Mystery

by Spencer Quinn

Chet, the wise and lovable canine narrator and Bernie, his down on his luck private investigator partner are trying to track down a missing teenage girl who may or may not have been kidnapped, but definitely has a penchant for unsavory characters. The duo’s hunt for the answer takes them to the desert, to biker bars, exotic locales...and into danger. A romp of a read.

LAPD cop, Scott James is still reeling from the murder of his partner Stephanie eight months ago. Maggie, a bomb sniffing German shepherd who survived three tours in Iraq and Afghanistan but lost her handler to an IED is working her way through a bad case of PTSD. And according to critics, “The most multifaceted and appealing new protagonist in crime fiction may just turn out to be a dog--and a hard boiled dog, to boot.”
