Publisher Description

Spencer Quinn's Heart of Barkness is the latest in the New York Times bestselling series that the Los Angeles Times called "nothing short of masterful". Chet the dog, "the most lovable narrator in all of crime fiction" (Boston Globe) and P.I. Bernie encounter heartache and much worse in the world of country music. They're both music lovers, so when Lotty Pilgrim, a country singer from long ago, turns up at a local bar, they drive out to catch her act. Bernie's surprised to see someone who was once so big performing in such a dive, and drops a C-note the Little Detective Agency can't afford to part with into the tip jar. The C-note is stolen right from under their noses - even from under Chet's, the nose that misses nothing - and before the night is over, it's stolen again. Soon they're working the most puzzling case of their career, a case that takes them back in time in search of old border-town secrets, and into present-day danger where powerful people want those secrets to stay hidden. Chet and Bernie find themselves sucked into a real-life murder ballad where there is no one to trust but each other.

    " After events in the prior book, “Scents and Sensibility “, put poor Bernie in the hospital I was really looking forward to this book and seeing the Little Detective Agency get back on track. And in the beginning it seemed to happen. But this story sort of bogged down in the middle. There were times I wanted give some of the characters a stiff shake and tell them to “wake up and smell the coffee”! And I was disappointed that it appears the relationship between Bernie and Suzie may be at its' end. You always want a 'happy ever after' ending for the good guys. Maybe all's not lost, we'll see. Overall, this wasn't one of my favorite Chet and Bernie books, but it was worth the time to listen. "
