For fans of this series, just mentioning that there is a new Chet and Bernie adventure is enough to get them excited and in the mood to read. This is the third book in the series, with many more to come, I hope!

Technically, Bernie is the human private investigator and Chet is his canine companion. However, Chet is the narrator of this suspenseful series.

In this outing, Chet (and Bernie, too) is on the trail of an elephant who has gone missing from a small circus. Popo the Clown has hired them to find out what happened to Peanut (the elephant) and his trainer, who is also missing. The case quickly becomes a lot more dangerous than either Bernie or Chet expected.

Chet is a charmer! The author does an outstanding job of combining suspense with humor. If you haven't tried this series yet, you're missing one of the most entertaining series being written today. A new Chet and Bernie mystery always moves to the top of my "to read" list.

Other titles in the series are DOG ON IT and THEREBY HANGS A TAIL. You may read a review of the previous books by clicking on the title.
