Humor and intrigue combine for a “thoroughly entertaining comic mystery” (Booklist) as Spencer Quinn’s engaging and unlikely team of crime solvers takes on the case of a boy gone missing from a wilderness camp.

The kid’s mother thinks her ex-husband snatched their son, but Chet’s always reliable nose leads Bernie in a new and dangerous direction. Meanwhile, matters at home get complicated 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 intrepid sleuths to trust each other even when circumstances—and a rival PI—conspire to keep them far apart.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tricia Douglas | 2/15/2014

    " This is the fourth Chet and Bernie detective book where Chet, the dog, interprets the human world through his master Bernie, the detective. Well written, funny, and this cat lover is almost learning to love dogs too! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maryellen | 2/5/2014

    " What a fetching book! THE DOG WHO KNEW TOO MUCH was such a fun read. This is the 4th book in the 'Chet and Bernie Mystery' series. I have not read books 1 through 3 and that didn't make a bit of difference in reading this book. The entire book is written from the perspective of Chet. Chet of course being the dog who knew too much. Bernie and Chet are a private investigating team hired to find a missing child and just about everything that could go wrong, does go wrong along the way. For a time Chet is on the case on his own and it doesn't stop him from trying to sniff out the bad guys! Aside from a few instances of questionable language, this book is would be a fun read for the younger set as well. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Margo | 2/2/2014

    " I'm not big on mysteries and detective stories per se, but this was a lot of fun, being told from the perspective of Chet, the dog half of the detective team. Pretty complicated plot, too. I'm definitely going to look for the other three Chet and Bernie mysteries at the library. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Deena Scintilla | 1/27/2014

    " Love this series! If Dona, my Lab, could talk she's sound very much like Chet esp. when it comes to losing a train of thought. Laughed out loud a couple of times which drew some looks at the YMCA while I was on the treadmill. A very quick read for me-a day. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Debra Daniels-zeller | 1/22/2014

    " This is the second book I've read in the Chet and Bernie mystery series. I chose it because I really like the narrator--Chet the dog. He's one of the funniest crime solving detectives I've ever had the pleasure to read. It's obvious the author has a dog he can relate to because his narration is very believeable, Bernie, Chet's partner, gets into trouble and Chet saves him. It's a very similar format to Dog On It, the first Chet and Bernie book I read last year. I'm not a great fan of formula and I'm not a great fan of missing children stories and that's what The Dog Who Knew Too Much is about. Also mysteries tend to be less character driven and more about solving a puzzle. Give me a good suspense story anytime over a mystery. Still, when you peel off the layers, Chet is a great main character and I'd probably try one more in this series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Richard | 1/22/2014

    " Chet is the happiest character in mystery fiction. I keep expecting this series to wear out its welcome, but the writing stays fresh and Chet keeps the pace moving swiftly. Having a dog think like a dog is a tough job, but Quinn does this exceptionally well. The kidnapping plot isn't anything special, it is interesting and moves along through Chet's eyes, and they are keen. Hard not to like this series, I'm waiting for the next one. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Valerie | 1/17/2014

    " Great, light hearted reading, written extremely well and thoroughly entertaining. I highly recommend the audio book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joe O'c | 1/10/2014

    " Excellent; Continuing characters: Chet and Bernie; a boy goes missing from a camp and it seems some locals are tied into a conspiracy that set up Chet and Bernie as targets; Chet the dog's personality continues to unfold and offers hilarious and poignant insight in turns "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Newgirl | 1/7/2014

    " Not deep, but fun :D "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Vionna | 12/30/2013

    " A fun mystery narrated by Chet the dog who, along with his owner Bernie Little, run a private detective agency. They are in search of a kidnapped little boy. Quite a cast of characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Annie | 12/12/2013

    " Good book for a quick mystery read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Colleen | 12/7/2013

    " I really enjoy these books. It's fun to read from Chet's (the dog) perspective. However, I wish there wasn't so much swearing and taking the Lord's name in vain. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lark | 12/4/2013

    " I wish my dog was as smart as Chet. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brenda | 11/28/2013

    " I love this series! It's told from the dog's point of view and is so funny, usually, although sometimes a little sad. Very clever! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy | 5/27/2013

    " This is a fun mystery series told from the dog's perspective. The best part? It's a series, so your beloved canine doesn't die at the end! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cindy Turner | 3/15/2013

    " I always look forward to Bernie and Chet's next great adventure. So far I have not been disappointed! This is the fourth in the series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Caryn | 12/23/2012

    " Chet and Bernie books always make me happy. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Becky C. | 6/11/2012

    " I always "ear read" these books because I love the way the reader does the voices of Chet and Bernie. Even if the story is less than thrilling the presentation more than makes up for it. I can never look at my own dogs without wondering what their voices sound like:) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joan | 2/3/2012

    " Gotta love that Chet!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cynthia | 1/12/2012

    " I love Chet and Bernie! They hate Chetster and Bern, never call them that. They get in trouble, they get out of it. They find lost people and objects. All told from Chet's viewpoint including Squirrel! moments. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rita | 12/2/2011

    " Another Bernie and Chet adventure. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lorraine Kelly | 11/25/2011

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John | 11/1/2011

    " Enjoyed it. A little too much of Chet in this one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Isabel | 10/24/2011

    " Some leaps in logic but when the story is told from the dog's perspective I supposed the logical police detecting gets lost in translation. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cindy | 10/21/2011

    " I always look forward to Bernie and Chet's next great adventure. So far I have not been disappointed! This is the fourth in the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lori | 10/16/2011

    " These are far better than you'd think. Funny, a really good exercise in point of view, and the guy has total command over his story. You do need to like dogs, though, no question. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tricia | 10/3/2011

    " This is the fourth Chet and Bernie detective book where Chet, the dog, interprets the human world through his master Bernie, the detective. Well written, funny, and this cat lover is almost learning to love dogs too! "
