In the irresistible second installment of the New York Times bestselling Chet and Bernie mystery series, Chet gets a glimpse of the show dog world turned deadly.

What first seems like a walk in the park to wise and lovable canine narrator Chet and his human companion, Bernie—to investigate threats made against a pretty, pampered show dog—turns into a serious case when Princess and her owner are abducted. To make matters worse, Bernie’s on-again, off-again girlfriend, reporter Susie Sanchez, disappears too. When Chet is separated from Bernie, he’s on his own to put the pieces together, find his way home, and save the day.

Spencer Quinn’s masterful series combines genuine suspense and intrigue with humor and insight for a tail-wagging good time that listeners won’t soon forget.

Quotes & Awards

  • “This fast-moving and fun series entry will certainly please Chet and Bernie fans as well as gain new readers with its all-ages appeal.”


  • “Chet makes a clever narrator, thinking like a human but often confounded by figures of speech (‘crocodile tears,’ ‘red herring’), and Quinn manages to keep things both humorous and suspenseful while delivering a proper, satisfying whodunit.”

    " This is probably as good as the first book in the series, but I don't like to give everything five stars. I love mystery series because I know I don't have to let go of fictional characters I have grown to love. Chet really puts me into a more in the moment frame of mind. "
