Meet Bernie, the P.I., and Chet, the dog (and narrator), as they take on a possible kidnapping case. A mother is frantically looking for her daughter, a teen-ager, who may or may not have been kidnapped.

The clues lead Chet (and Bernie) to some unsavory places.

While I'm not big on animals-as-detective stories, I couldn't put this book down after reading the first page. Chet is endearing. I hope he works (and the author writes) about a hundred cases! Mystery buffs, P.I. fans, dog enthusiasts -- I can't think of anyone, off hand, who won't enjoy this book and be waiting impatiently to get their hands on the next book in the series and the next...

Chet and Bernie are a winning duo.

DOG ON IT is the first book in this amusing, suspenseful new series. THEREBY HANGS A TAIL is the second book in the Chet and Bernie series. Click here to read a review.
