I actually bought a copy of this. I have read all the others in this series thanks to the local library. ( )

Bernie Little and his dog Chet (the narrator of the book) are once again involved with a case for the Little Detective Agency in this, the fourth installment in the series. Looking for a missing child, that may or may not be a parental abduction land Bernie and Chet in more danger than they have encountered to date. Separated for a good portion of the book, they both discover clues in their own way … of course, Chet has a little difficulty getting Bernie, a better than average human, but human none-the-less, to understand what is really happening in this case.

It all works out for the best, but I am looking forward to next book, because after all, what is going on with this little pup that has shown up. The one that bears such a striking resemblance to Chet? Hmmmmm?

Chet and Bernie are hot on the trail of kidnappers and the readers have fun on the ride. I do get tired of hearing the same things over and over again from Chet about what he knows about Bernie, especially when I get them more than once in a book. Really? Padding maybe, Mr. Quinn. The plot of this one, though not a real 'mystery' as such, was entertaining and sometimes amusing and, as always, a quick read. I do want to know more (and see more) of the new puppy which was introduced. We could use some new meat and entertainment in these books. ( )

I am reading this series in order and this is the 4th. The first book is Dog On It. Bernie is a private eye with high principles and a teeny tiny bank balance. Like often he has only five dollars and he is "upside down on his house", yet he tears up checks if he doesn't respect the person who wrote it. Chet is the wonderful dog and his partner, who narrates much of the book. This is brilliant writing from inside the mind of a dog. There is a lot of humor here, with bits like Chet imagining what "upside down on his house" could possibly mean. Oh, they chase and catch bad guys. ( )

I've listed this as "set in California," but I think part of it is set in Nevada. Chet and Bernie are hired to provide escort service (not THAT kind! more like moral support)for a divorced woman who will be going to Parents' Weekend at her son's wilderness camp and expects to see her ex there. Not only is the ex not there, her son is missing. Before the happy ending, there will be some tough times for Bernie and still more for Chet, his canine partner. I continue to enjoy this series; the dog thinks and acts like a dog, and Bernie is a pretty engaging character too. Recommended quite highly. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 143915709X, Hardcover)

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.
