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.

    "YEA! another Chet adventure"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, and I have


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

    I love dogs and really enjoy Chet's antics as well as his ability to read humans.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Made laugh many times and feel that anxious sense for Chet and Berney at different points. Really kept me engaged.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a great read and I can't wait for the next one. Hope the author is able to keep up the newness and freshness of the story line.

    "For Dog Lovers"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Dog Who Knew Too Much to be better than the print version?

    yes, because the performance enhances the author's intent, especially the inflection of Chet the dog. Chet exudes the bare faced simplicity and loyalty in belief in his pal/partner/master/, Bernie.


    Have you listened to any of Jim Frangione’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    NA


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I loved the small descriptions of things like Chet waking to the squirrel outside his window together with Bernie's misinterpretation of what made Chet bark.

    "Quinn & Frangione = Outstanding Combo!"
    Any additional comments?

    Spencer Quinn outlines a perfect Human / Canine companionship. Jim Frangione brings Chet to life in a way that no other can. Together, this combo tells an entertaining and intriguing story like no other. Quinn's imagery is brought to life by Frangione's brilliant narration. I couldn't ask for a more entertaining series. I hope to see and hear many more Chet and Bernie Mysteries.

    "Entertaining Perspective"

    I like Chet so much that I now believe my own dog has an internal monologue. He does get a little repetitive at times, but he is a lovable narrator and these are fun books to listen to.

    Story
    "Best dog character ever!"
    Would you listen to The Dog Who Knew Too Much again? Why?

    I would listen to it again and to other books in the series. Chet the dog detective has such a wonderful attitude toward life and is brilliantly portrayed by Jim Frangione. I often laughed out loud while listening. I'm not a dog person, but I fell in love with Chet after only a few minutes.


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

    I was very concerned about how Chet would rescue Bernie (as he often does). Also there's ongoing suspense about Bernie's relationships with women. The actual solution of who did what is usually the part of a mystery that interests me the least. I like an interesting setting and characters I can care about, which this has.


    Which character – as performed by Jim Frangione – was your favorite?

    Chet just steals the show. He has a marvelous attitude toward life. As long as there is food and he is riding in the shotgun seat of the Porsche, life is great. It's delightful to learn his interpretations of human conversations and behavior. Jim Frangione is absolutely wonderful.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I would have if I could - I did sit in my car a few times listening to the end of a chapter to see what happened next.


    Any additional comments?

    All the other books in the series are just as good.

    Story
    "Best series yet for dog lovers who love mysteries"
    If you could sum up The Dog Who Knew Too Much in three words, what would they be?

    Another great story


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

    The story line is always focused on what's happening in the present, because it's from the dog's point of view. And even though Chet doesn't always understand what the humans mean when they're talking, he knows what their actions mean, so he has the advantage of clarity, knowing the case isn't closed until he has his jaws around the perp's pants leg.


    Which character – as performed by Jim Frangione – was your favorite?

    Chet, of course.

    "You can't beat Chet"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yep, it's perfect for anyone.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Dog Who Knew Too Much?

    When Chet finds the gold nugget. I really wish he could speak.


    What about Jim Frangione’s performance did you like?

    He BECOMES Chet.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When the kid finds out that his Dad had died.


    Any additional comments?

    A dog that thinks and helps solve crimes. Hell yes! Chet rules
