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.

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.

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.

Another Great Adventure with Chet and Bernie

Spencer Quinn is excellent in his narrating the story from Chet's point of view, and Jim Frangione is perfect as the narrator! The Dog Who Knew Too Much delivered all of the mystery and the antics of Chet that one would expect. My only criticism is this story had more foul language in it than was necessary. Other than that, well done, gentlemen! I look forward to listening to the next adventure!

Chet always there is same Bernie!!

Just when you think there isn't any possibility of getting out of the current jam. Chet comes along to save Bernie!

A bit more mystery in this one which is great. Some romantic trouble for Bernie as well. Overall a great story and wonderful series.

Quinn and Frangione are well suited!!

Dog lovers only

I had no idea the story would be told in the third person? narrative by a dog. I should have sent it back but kept thinking the detective would eventually take a larger part. Nope.

Lots of laughs

This was a delightful book, with many smiles and laugh out loud moments, all due to the dog's perceptions and lack of them. There was enough of a plot to keep things moving along, but the charm is really seeing things from the dog's point of view. It's brilliant and charming, plus the narration makes it perfect. I'm sure I'll read more.

WARNING: Will make you want to hug your dog.

Dog Chet tells this story with so much humor and wide-eyed wonder, you can't help but love every minute of it. As he doesn't quite understand everything going on around him and can't communicate his own findings, the human hero and the reader have the perfect amount of information asymmetry to keep things suspenseful. And did I mention how ridiculously charming Chet is?

The narrator is absolutely outstanding. Chet's confidence, his naivete, his ego and his all over adorable dogness sparke throughout the book, I couldn't tell you if I smiled more at the writing or the narration. They are a perfect combination.

My first of the series, absolutely works as a standalone.
