I love Chet and Bernie! They hate Chetster and Bern, never call them that. They get in trouble, they get out of it. They find lost people and objects. All told from Chet's viewpoint including Squirrel! moments. ( )

Bernie Little runs the Little Detective Agency ably assisted by Chet, or as Chet says "me and Bernie" run the agency. Their stories are related by Chet, who has a unique dog's understanding of things, offering lighthearted humour and an appealing take on crime. Quinn obviously has an excellent understanding of canine qualities and makes the most of them. I love this pair of sleuths. ( )

I like Chet and I like Bernie- mostly. I do not like the bad things that continually happen to Chet.... Bad things happen to dogs all the time yes, but in a book I dont expect it to be sooo bad to a dog we've all come to love that I want to stop reading it....Honestly can there be at least one in this series where Chet doesnt get hurt, or need rescuing....

? ? 1/2 for Chet the Jet

I ?'s Chet the Jet......

So, although this books begins true to form..... the fact that Bernie signed legal papers, UNREAD, from a Known con-artist... was totally Out-of-Character..... In fact he loses Chet.....

I'm angry that Spencer Quinn has stupidized Bernie to the point where he signs over Chet without so much as a glance....

The rest of the story is pretty good, searching for a lost child, who just might have been kidnapped by his father....... ( )

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.
