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.

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.

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.

Another good entry in the Chet and Bernie series

Chet and Bernie go to the circus. As usual, they end up finding a dead body. Always fun hearing Chet (Just Chet, the dog) tell a story.

Great listen

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.

Horrible narration.

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.
