In the irresistible second installment of the New York Times bestselling Chet and Bernie mystery series, which has been hailed as "enchanting [and] one-of-a-kind" (Stephen King), Chet gets a glimpse of the show dog world turned deadly. What first seems like a walk in the park to wise and lovable canine narrator Chet and his human companion Bernie-to investigate threats made against a pretty, pampered show dog-turns into a serious case 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. Spencer Quinn's "brilliantly original" (Richmond Times-Dispatch) and "masterful" (Los Angeles Times) series combines genuine suspense and intrigue with humor and insight for a tail-wagging good time readers won't soon forget.

"Private Investigator Bernie Little and his dog, Chet, are hired to protect Adelina Borghese and her tiny champion dog, Princess, until the Great Western Dog Show is over. The story is told from the point of view of Chet, who recounts it as only a wise dog can (though many of the things people say are still a mystery to him). Narrator Jim Frangione gives voice to Chet in a straightforward but no-holds-barred manner. There's nothing cutesy in his narration--indeed, there are white knuckle moments for all involved. Chet's account is also filled with asides, bacon, and biscuits--all the things that make up a dog's world. B.H.B. (c) AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine"
