Publisher's Summary

Santa doesn't just deliver gifts - he takes them too! - in this delightful holiday audio short featuring New York Times best-selling sleuths Chet and Bernie.

He sees you when you're sleeping. He knows when you're awake. This year, jolly old St. Nick knows Bernie has been sleeping on preparations for a special Christmas celebration with his son, Charlie. Enter Plumpy Napoleon, fresh from a short stint in prison, to save Bernie from the naughty list. Plumpy calls his latest business plan "Santa 365". For a small fee (that only gets bigger), he'll fill your life with holiday cheer, including elves, a festive party, gifts, and even a Christmas tree delivered right to your front door. Bernie signs on for the full yuletide experience. But after the blowout holiday bash, Bernie and Chet the dog discover one of Santa's helpers helped himself to more than Christmas candy.

The intrepid duo sets out to find the sticky-fingered perp and reclaim the stolen goods. Add in a surprise visit from Bernie's mom, two elderly sisters seeking their own brand of justice, and an elf with a stocking full of secrets, and you have a Christmas mystery that only Chet and Bernie could possibly unwrap.

Another tip-top episode!

The worst thing about this is that it is a short story! Otherwise it is cute and delightful, and something to keep Chet fans going until the next full book comes out (and we do hope there will be more).

Bernie gets suckered into letting an old con play Santa for a Christmas party at his house. You can imagine what happens, but you will probably be wrong!

Despite its shortness, there are still plenty of very Chet-ish details here. Both Chet and Bernie are fully-fleshed and the story sets off right away. There are a few laughs, Chet grabs the perp's pant leg, and everyone ends up happy, even the perps! There is even a surprise character and a little hope for future eyebrow waggles!

And you are reminded that you should always be carrying some Slim Jims in your pocket or purse for some member of The Nation.

Jim Frangione does his usual fantastic job, and brings it all to tip-top life.

Not worth a credit, but definitely worth the $6 to complete your Chet collection.

Chet and Bernie plus perps

This is a cute, seasonal, short story about our friends and their adventures. As always, a fun listen.
Jim Frangione continues to be the ideal narrator for this series.

A great Christmas “tail”!

Bernie, Chet and the gang celebrate Christmas, not once but twice! This story is easy to listen to and can be done in one sitting. Get your jollies on and read this to celebrate! It’s a familiar “tail” with all the people you already know. Merry Christmas!
