Overview

Spencer Quinn follows the critical success of his New York Times best-selling Dog on It with this second mystery starring hapless private investigator Bernie and his four-legged partner Chet, a K-9 school dropout. While Bernie continues his struggle to pay the bills, Chet-with his sharp nose and even sharper teeth-keeps bringing down the perps. Told from Chet's perspective and featuring the humorous ramblings of a dog, Thereby Hangs a Tail is another winner.

If you love dogs and like detective stories this is the book for you. The author's voice of Chet, the dog, is thoroughly delightful. Just watch your dog, or even other dogs, and Chet's thoughts make perfect sense. The mystery part of the story is a little thinner but still enjoyable.

I almost ditched this book on the first chapter. How cutesy is a talking dog? I'm glad I didn't. It's exciting and suspenseful and I was admiring of an author who manages to have his human protagonist solve a mystery when his dog turns up clues but is unable to communicate with his human hero. I really enjoyed this book.
