Admin will be on The Point with host Mindy Todd and librarian Jill Erickson this Wednesday 9-10 AM, discussing mysteries. That’s WCAI-WNAN, Cape and Islands radio. It’s a call-in show, so call in!

Amy’s voice came through the speakers. “And – the results were negative.”
The blood drained from Bernie’s face. All at once he went from looking great to looking terrible, like this sick old guy who sometimes goes past our house in a wheelchair. “Oh, God,” he said. “Negative?”
“That’s good news, Bernie,” Amy said. “The best. Negative is good.”
“Negative is good?”
“It means no malignancy,” Amy said. “It’s just a benign growth, may shrink and vanish on its own, and easily removable if not.”
The blood came rushing back to Bernie’s face. It turned bright red – I had no doubt about that, no matter what anyone says about me and color – and he smiled a smile so big his eyes practically disappeared. What the hell was going on? “Thank you,” Bernie said. “Thank you, thank you, thank you.”
Amy laughed and said goodbye. Bernie patted my head, kind of hard, actually. “Good boy,” he said. “Way to go.”
Nice, but what had I done?

5.0 out of 5 stars – Chet reduces human interactions and speech to his level of understanding yet “produces” a great “can’t put it down” mystery … November 20, 2014
M. Benson on DOG ON IT:
“Not since Anna Sewell wrote “Black Beauty” from Beauty’s perspective, have I encountered another author so in tune with the animal psyche. While Sewell’s tale was dark and filled with tragedy, Mr. Quinn delivers a light hearted, fast-paced mystery, from the canine perspective.
I am a dedicated dog lover, and it is obvious the author is as well. I found myself laughing out loud again and again. Chet reduces human interactions and speech to his level of understanding yet “produces” a great “can’t put it down” mystery full of wonderful humor. I am now reading my third “Chet and Bernie” mystery.
These books are so believable, I have to keep reminding myself that dogs can’t write. Or can they?”
