5.0 out of 5 stars – another laugh aloud Chet and Bernie – April 15, 2014
bkluvr on To Fetch A Thief:
In this Chet and Bernie mystery, Chet makes some unusual new friends, gets into some serious trouble, and of course saves the day. All of this happens in Mr. Quinn’s usual totally adult style, with real pathos, humor, and of course satisfaction at the end. ! can’t imagine a more engaging read than the Chet and Bernie books.
Welcome new friend (see galery) Max from Israel.
“You know how to do that?” says Admin.
“Giving it a whirl this morning,” Spence says. “Live Skyping with a bunch of Chet and Bernie readers at the Muskingum Library in Zanesville, Ohio.”
“Beautiful Ohio’s my second favorite state song,” Admin says.
Welcome Mico in CA; Cassie, please try uploading again.
Ms. Publicist: Fifteenth of the month, so it’s time for my little talk with Spencer Quinn, where he gives the inside dope on one of the characters from the Chet and Bernie series. What’ll it be today, Spence?
Spencer Quinn: Does anyone ever give the outside dope on something? But to answer the question, how about a character from PAW AND ORDER, which isn’t even out yet?
Ms. P: Nothing in the rules against it.
SQ: Then we’ll talk about Mr. Ferretti. I like every name to suggest something or other, but we have to be much more subtle about it than they were in Dickens’ day – with Mr. Bumble, and Gradgrind, and all that. With Mr. Ferretti – a perfectly plausible Italianate surname – we conjure up a hunting creature very good at digging things up.
Ms. P: The ferret, perhaps?
SQ: None other.
Ms. P: Thanks, Spence. Go do your taxes.
