Publisher's Summary

The fourth entry in the irresistible New York Times best-selling 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 best-selling 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.

Hot dog: listen to another Chet and Bernie Mystery.

    "Talking dog made charmingly believable."
    Any additional comments?

    I want to meet Bernie and he is fictional. Good story aside from the outright delight of a dog detective helping the humans. Not sappy in the least, as was an actual good detective story that simply had a dog on the case. Will read the rest in this series. Fun. Charming. Well written. Good story. Focused on the story, not the trick of the talking dog so it was first a good detective story and second a good dog story.

    Story
    "Too many "F" bombs"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Someone who doesn't mind listening to vulgarity


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    The plot was great.


    What didn’t you like about Jim Frangione’s performance?

    Loved Jim's narration - the voice of Chet made you think you were really listening to a dog talk and think. I just cannot get past the vulgarity.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Redeeming quality was the plot and the characters.


    Any additional comments?

    Thousands of people would still buy these books if you removed the "F" bombs and taking God's name in vain - they are so well written EXCEPT for the foul language. I would really love to listen to a G rated adult book by this author and narrator. I would buy them every time. However, I cannot buy anymore because of the foul language. Very disappointed as I love the character of Chet and Bernie. :-(

    I've always loved books. Even before I could read I've loved them. Fact or Fiction, I love books. I'd sooner read a book than see a movie.

    "Spencer Quinn hits a home run"

    this is one of Quinn's best Chet and Bernie stories. Taking the case to be a chaperone for a woman and ending up looking for her lost son at Big Bear. Wines Chet and Bernie in real hot water. Susie comes to the rescue. Chet finds a little look a like at home. I can't wait for their next adventure.

    "As always - Chet and Bernie put a smile on my face"
    Any additional comments?

    If you have ever looked at a pet and wondered what they were thinking...
    If you also happen to like a mystery and / or Private Eye books.
    Additionally, if you have a little quirky sense of humor and enjoy looking at the world "a little off center" prepare to have a really good time.

    "Another great Bernie and Chet book!"

    The series is so entertaining. Spencer Quinn does an amazing job of telling a story from q dog's point of view. I would bet that if dogs could talk, they'd speak just like Chet. The books are both intense and laugh out loud funny. I own several of the books, but once I found the audiobooks, I was even more hooked. Jim Frangione totally captures Chet and brings him to life.

    "Too funny"

    I loved hearing Chet's view of the flawed yet somehow perfect Bernie. Chet's dialogue is truly entertaining and to me the repeat phrases give a sense of credence to our main character which is in fact a dog.

    "Why the "f" word?"

    I really enjoy these Chet and Bernie stories. Chet has a great sense of humor. My question is, why does the "f" word have to be used so often? I can't play these stories out loud. I'm around children and that word plus many others are not used in this house.

    "a story to make a dog-lover's heart sing"

    These are superbly narrated, really finely done. I love the dog's thoughts that ramble, and almost make comprehension leaps, but no. Still Chet is a highly intelligent, well-trained dog anyone would love to work with. And Bernie is a real guy, not too smart when it comes to women, but very smart about bad guys. These are not silly books, but just delightful. Frangione's narration can make you cry and laugh. The human emotions and drama are real and poignant. Great series. I hope they never end.

    "Chet the Dog Detective Entertains"

    This was a good mystery story, told from the perspective of Chet to dog. In addition to keeping our attention as we listened around the campfire, we enjoyed laughing at how typical a dog Chet really is - easily distracted and ready for a good time - as well as being totally loyal to his master and partner at the Little Detective Agency. We now want to read the first story by this author.
