Overview

"Spencer Quinn speaks two languages -- suspense and dog -- fluently." -- Stephen King
There is trouble brewing in the Louisiana swamp -- Bowser can smell it. Bowser is a very handsome and only slightly slobbery dog, and he can smell lots of things. Like bacon. And rawhide chews! And the sweat on humans when they're lying.
Birdie Gaux, the girl Bowser lives with, also knows something is wrong. It's not just that her grammy's stuffed prize marlin has been stolen. It's the weird rumor that the marlin is linked to a missing treasure. It's the truck that seems to be following Birdie and the bad feeling on the back of her neck.
When Birdie and Bowser start digging into the mystery, not even Bowser's powerful sniffer can smell just how menacing the threat is. And when the danger comes straight for Birdie, Bowser knows it up to him to sic 'em.

This book was wonderful. Spencer Quinn told an engaginging story, but James Frangione's narration brought it to delightful, realistic life! Of course dogs talk--and think--like that! He nailed it! I listened to this children's book as an adult and it has been my favorite read of the summer. Now to purchase it for my 11year old great neice--who just rescued Max.

I listen to my audio books while walking my dogs at the dog park. The book was enjoyable, held my attention, and made me wonder what my dogs are thinking! I will get the sequel soon. Even though I'm an adult, I felt it was a great book, and recommend it for all ages!

Humor, suspense, a wonderful dog, and good human characters, over all a fun book for kids. I also liked the details and information brought about from the setting (swamp country, Louisiana). The narrator was also good.
