I interviewed this guy for his first two books in his Chet and Bernie series but at that point his real identity wasn't known yet. I'll be interviewing him in December by email about his two new books, one of which is the latest in the series (which has the fun angle of a dog as a narrator - his human companion is a private eyes so it's private detective work from the dog's perspective leading to fun word play like when ...more
Book four in the Chet and Bernie mystery series. Bernie is hired to be a “bodyguard” for a woman who fears her ex-husband, as she goes to Parents’ Weekend to visit her son at a remote mountain camp. But when they arrive, her ex is no where to be found, and neither is her son, who’s gone missing on an overnight hiking trip. Luckily, they brought Chet along, a great tracking dog (and the narrator of this series).
I love Chet the Jet! Quinn has managed to give him a personality that befits a ...more

Bernie Little and his hundred-plus pound dog Chet run the 'Little Detective Agency', somewhere in the western United States (this story seems to be set in Colorado). The series is narrated by Chet, whose somewhat limited vocabulary, unfamiliarity with idioms, and doggie logic set the stage for plenty of smiles. Bernie is a West Point graduate, good at his job, and Chet is his invaluable partner, always ready to clamp his jaw on perps and drag them off by the pants.

When he has those epiphanous near-complex thought moments, I'm, like, dog savant...oh, so close.
But Chet isn't working on his own here. Bernie is the human part of the successful Chet and Bernie team. Each has their skills. And just like Harry Dresden, in eac ...more

This is the fourth installment in the Chet and Bernie series and it fits in beautifully with the other three books.
I you have not read this series the story is told from Chet’s perspective. Chet is the dog and it is quite refreshing to have a story that sees us humans from another view. It can be funny and confusing at times, at least from Chet’s vantage point.

Chet is a fantastic narrator. He’s a failed police K9 dog and he adores Bernie, frequently referring to things Bernie has said in the past. He takes things very literally at times, “keep your eyes peeled” and “keep your eye on the ball” being typical examples that have Chet puzzling. He can also go off at a com

Quinn avoids the mistake of portraying Chet as a super-intelligent, human-thinking dog by having him tell this tale (and other in the series) in a somewhat rambling narrative full of minor asides, distractions, and repetitions. Reviewers of other books in this series have called this repetition annoying, but it just proves Quinn has doggie thought processes down pat. Chet ‘reads’ h ...more

The story itself almost takes a backseat for me. I just love hearing about Chet's devotion for his "partner" Bernie and vice versa. Chet has amazing hero worship for his human.
I have to admit, whenever Chet is separated from Bernie, I get incredibly ...more
Newtome author, and I'm diving in at #4 - hope that won't matter too much.
It was okay, so I'll use the GR(rr)amazon guide for star awarding and give it a 2* with the subtext 'I'm blowed if I will read anymore of these.'
