Beginnings

On Sundays we do beginnings, taking a look at the start of all the Peter Abrahams novels including those written under the Spencer Quinn moniker (oh, no, “moniker” again). In the Chet and Bernie series, Chet makes more than one reference to the Teitelbaum divorce, “a nightmare.” You may not know that there’s an e-short story all about that case – TAIL OF VENGEANCE. (There are 5 C&B short stories, including UPPER STORY, which can be had free as part of the preorder campaign for HEART OF BARKNESS. Search this site for Heart of Barkness promo” to see how to do it.) Here’s the beginning of TAIL OF VENGEANCE:

“I think my boyfriend is cheating on me.”

We should have walked away at that very moment, me and Bernie, or better yet run, our tails between our legs. Not so easy in Bernie’s case, since, maybe like you, he’s stuck with living a tailless life, poor guy. Imagine that! Actually, I can’t. The good news is that I’ve got enough tail for two, a strong, bushy, pleasing-to-the-eye tail that even has a mind of its own. Sometimes it wags me! Or just about. I’m not so easy to wag, being a hundred-plus pounder, and strong for my size, Bernie says. And not just Bernie: ask some of the perps up at Northern State Correctional, although they may not have time for chitchat, what with being so busy breaking rocks in the hot sun. The point is we’ve taken down lots of perps here at the Little Detective Agency. Bernie’s last name is Little. I’m Chet, pure and simple.

… that makes it all worthwhile, and then some.

“Took care of my sis with dementia one winter and she loved listening to these as we cooked and drove. Thankful for the series.”
