Why would anyone break into 19 Gentilly Lane? That's where the Gaux family lives, and everyone knows they have nothing worth stealing. More important, the house is usually guarded by Birdie Gaux's dog, Bowser, a large and handsome fellow with a big set of sharp teeth.

Now Birdie is looking worried and Bowser is on the trail of something rotten. Who was behind the break in? Why is a girl with green hair asking odd questions about what happened to Birdie's dad, a policeman who was killed in the line of duty years ago? Worst of all, why is the whole town starting to stink of limeade aftershave and CAT?!?

The death of Birdie's father may be a cold case, but Bowser can tell it's heating up fast. Someone is coming after Birdie and her family, and Bowser must be ready to protect them from anything. Even that awful cat.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Spencer Quinn speaks two languages—suspense and dog—fluently.”

    Stephen King, #1 New York Times bestselling author, praise for the series

  • “The suspense builds nicely, and the Louisiana bayou setting and lively cast of characters (mostly white and Cajun) give the story home and heart…Fans will enjoy the brouhaha in the bayou and hope more mysteries are on the way for their favorite sleuths."

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “Since the story is told from Bowser’s perspective, it often has a funny and silly tone that is amusing and entertaining, but the story line can turn dark at times with Birdie’s discovery of a dead body, murder plots, and potential kidnappings. As the protagonist, Birdie is a strong, independent, and smart character; Bowser provides comic relief…This page-turner will leave readers looking forward to more mysteries with their favorite canine and his favorite human, amateur detective.”

    Children’s Literature

  • “Narrator James Frangione is the best voice for the job…Though generally light in tone, Frangione adds a sinister undertone when the duo discover a body in the swamp. Bowser’s delightful canine insights will surely garner this series new fans.”
