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.

The character of Chet the Dog
It enhanced the story.
Chet's admiration for Bernie
Me and my partner are hooked on Chet and Bernie!
This series is purely enjoyable. The unfolding of each mystery keeps me involved and entertained until they solve it! The character development is also wonderful, creating 3 dimensional individuals that now feel like old friends. I can't wait to go on another adventure with this duo!
I love Jim as a narrator, his depiction of Chet and Bernie is exactly how I would envision their mannerism and speech to be!
I love books and animals.I enjoy all sorts of genres, anything from history to supernatural.
Very high. This series is so much fun and is the narration is enjoyable to listen to. I can't wait for the next book.
Without giving anything away - Chet wandering the mine.
Chet- I think he truly captures the spirit of a dog through his narration.
When Chet sees Bernie locked up.
Spencer Quinn does a fantastic job of creating an intriguing murder mystery through the eyes of dog. The narrator also does a fantastic job of bringing the characters to life. If you haven't read this series yet and you love animals - start.
As always, the world as seen from Chet's view is always a great listen and makes you look at your own dogs sideways as you hear it. Chet may think Bernie is the smartest man in the room at any time, but Chet is the super dog who always saves the day, solves the crime, and saves the humans.
I have read the other Bernie and Chet books and enjoyed them, so I ordered this book. I like the book, but the narrator is horrible. His narration is extremely disjointed and jerky. Read the book. I won't ever listen to another book with this narrator.
Mystery lover from waaaay back when.... Especially love those dark police/detective procedurals and the comic caper. I'm pretty tough as a reviewer. Writing must be smart and well-edited. Plots must be credible and a bit of twistiness and surprises are always welcome. Favorite authors [partial list]: Donald Westlake, Tana French, David Rosenfelt, Ruth Rendell, Ed McBain,
I was very skeptical about this book. The idea of the Dog being the narrator seemed soooo contrived. Even though I love the dog mysteries written by other authors--but the humans are the narrators.
Well, after about 20 minutes of listening, I was totally won over. The author is brilliant at making this very believable. I found myself totally enjoying this book, and I'm looking forward to new adventures of Chet and Bernie!
What would have made The Dog Who Knew Too Much better? There were problems with the plot line, mostly the fact it was very difficult to follow. I also found that I could not submerse myself into the characters and that their development fell flat.
The performance was dry and monotone -- I did not care for it and it did nothing to peak my interest in the novel. Listening to the performance, however, did often times literally put me to sleep.
