Publisher Comments:

In the irresistible second installment of the New York Times bestselling Chet and Bernie mystery series, which has been hailed as “enchanting [and] one-of-a-kind” (Stephen King), Chet gets a glimpse of the show dog world turned deadly.

What first seems like a walk in the park to wise and lovable canine narrator Chet and his human companion Bernie—to investigate threats made against a pretty, pampered show dog—turns into a serious case when Princess and her owner are abducted. To make matters worse, Bernie’s on-again, off-again girlfriend, reporter Susie Sanchez, disappears too. When Chet is separated from Bernie, he’s on his own to put the pieces together, find his way home, and save the day. Spencer Quinn’s “brilliantly original” (Richmond Times-Dispatch) and “masterful” (Los Angeles Times) series combines genuine suspense and intrigue with humor and insight for a tail-wagging good time readers won’t soon forget.

Sheila Deeth, May 1, 2015 (view all comments by Sheila Deeth)
Thereby Hangs a Tail is Spencer Quinn’s second Chet and Bernie mystery, but the first one I’ve read. Told from the point of view of hundred-pound canine Chet, it’s a tale of mystery and suspense, with occasional squirrels, dog biscuits, car chases and the chance to chew a bad guy’s pant leg. The voice reads like a cross between Mr. Ed and LA Noir. The digressions are fun and thoroughly canine. And the plot is nicely drawn, becoming clear despite the curious viewpoint, with just the right amount of human dialog caught between the lines.

Okay, it’s a fairly twisted plot, with a few seriously convenient coincidences. But it works, it yields its fair portion of serious bad guys, and a reasonable number of characters (human and canine) survive. I’ll certainly read more, while Chet will undoubtedly seek more treats from the coffee shop, and Bernie will maybe see a little more of his son sometime. With humans a little more flawed than their pets, Chet and Bernie are well worth following as they seek out more mysteries to solve.

Disclosure: I’d been waiting to read one of these for ages.
