This book was truly terrible. How often do you fall asleep while reading the last ten pages of a mystery, when the murderer is about to be revealed?
I found Randolph to be completely pompous and dull. I won't spend any time on the rest of the books in this sad series.

A funny, often hilarious mystery narrated by a well-read Labrador retriever. I thoroughly enjoyed this engaging, well-constructed novel.

Very funny book. It's interesting to see the world through a labrador's eyes.

I still love Randolph, but the books are losing their appeal.
