In their second adventure, Bernie and Chet are called on to investigate threats made against an unlikely target – a pretty and pampered show dog called Princess. What seems like a lark of a case turns serious when Princess and her owner are abducted. To make matters worse, Bernie’s on-again-off-again girlfriend, reporter Susie Sanchez, disappears too. When Chet is separated from Bernie, he’s on his own to put the pieces together, find his way home, and save the day.
“Quinn has a gift for hardboiled and Kibbled dialogue, and his novels are a delicious mix of comedy, of quirky character studies (in the manner of Elmore Leonard or Carl Hiaasen) and Sam Spade-style action. I can’t think of a better break from the headlines.”
“Another refreshing spin. . . . Chet makes a clever narrator . . . and Quinn manages to keep things both humorous and suspenseful while delivering a proper, satisfying whodunit.”
– Publishers Weekly
“For all mystery lovers, even those with cats.”
– Library Journal
“The most winning detective duo since Shaggy met Scooby. . . Quinn mixes suspense and humor as Chet tries to puzzle out humans’ odd ways.”
