The Dog Who Knew Too Much
by Spencer Quinn
This is the fourth book in the Chet and Bernie series. Chet is a dog who tells the story of helping his owner, Bernie, on their cases, as Bernie is a private investigator. In this book, Chet and Bernie are hired by a woman to find her missing son, who was at a wilderness camp and never returned for an overnight hike. Not a simple missing persons case, as the boy's father has a criminal bent and got involved in some shady dealings with people local to the camp. Chet and Bernie take a few shots along the way but continue to try to track down the boy.
This series is a fun one to read. The books are good mysteries. Chet and Bernie are great characters and have a nice connection. Secondary characters like Bernie's girlfriend Suzy are also well-developed. There is a lot of humor in these books, especially in Chet's telling of the story. I recommend this series.
