The fifth book of the New York Times bestselling Chet and Bernie mystery series.
Everyone’s favorite detective team returns in a new adventure as canine narrator Chet and his human partner P.I. Bernie Little find that Hollywood has gone to the dogs.
While Tinseltown bad boy Thad Perry is in town shooting a big-budget Western, Bernie and Chet have to keep him out of trouble. But soon they discover Thad has a mysterious connection to the Valley, and the only people who know his secrets keep turning up dead before they can talk.
As Bernie’s love life goes long-distance and Chet’s late-night assignations give rise to an unexpected dividend, it’s all our two sleuths can do to keep the actor in their sights. Worst of all, Thad is a self-proclaimed cat person, and his feline friend Brando has taken an instant dislike to Chet.
Like the winning books before it, this fifth book in the series combines a topnotch mystery with genuine humor and a perceptive take on the relationship between human and dog that will stay with you long after the case is solved.
“Between Chet’s insightful and humorous takes on human events, the fast-paced plot, and the wealth of fascinating secondary characters, this is a fine entry in a not-to-be-missed series.” – Booklist
“Amusing, intelligent and exciting… A fun romp through a genre that’s been around for decades but in the right hands (or paws) still has the power to entertain us.”
– Cesar’s Way
“Once again, Quinn…effectively uses a dog narrator while avoiding the sentimentality that marks many animal-centered cozies.”
– Publishers Weekly
“You would think that by the fifth series title, Quinn might have run out of ideas and quips—he hasn’t. Fans of Janet Evanovich or Donna Andrews will enjoy Quinn’s humorous and entertaining mysteries.”
– Library Journal
“Chet, who continues as narrator in this exciting fifth installment of the series…always gets it right in the end.”
