Laura Huff on A FISTFUL OF COLLARS:
Spencer Quinn’s fifth book in his mystery book series is called A Fistful Of Collars. In this book Bernie and Chet solve a mystery about the death of two people. Spencer Quinn’s books are fun to read for dog lovers or anyone in fact because the main character of the book is a dog named Chet and he is telling the story from his point of view. Spencer Quinn continues to leave you loving Chet with his fifth book with the humor of Chet and the great descriptive words to visualize in your head. And an ending that will make you want to read his other books in the series.

Here’s part of an interview Michelle Bowles of What’s That Book About did with Spence … and Chet.
Q: Do you tend to watch dogs and other animals more closely now to mine them for good Chet behavior?
A: Curse and blessing, but I’ve always been a close watcher, period. I don’t dial it up in order to be productive – it’s just sort of there. That said, I’m a dog lover and of course you pay attention to what you care about.
Q: What’s your favorite part of interacting with your fans?
A: The online community that’s arisen around the Chet and Bernie series on Facebook and at www.ChettheDog.com is wonderful. We’ve got dog lovers, mystery lovers, and story lovers in general. But my favorite part is the question period after I give a talk. Imaginations connect!
Q: What can humans learn from dogs?
That’s a huge subject, and a main theme of the Chet and Bernie series. Boiling it down, it’s about an attitude toward life: in the now, optimistic, physical, loving. And not overthinking things.
Q: OK then, Chet: Cats: take them or leave them?
A: I don’t have the slightest problem with cats, unless one escapes up a tree, or yawns in my face, or lounges on a couch in that annoying I’m-better-than-you-are way, or otherwise crosses my path.
Q: Do you prefer car rides or walks?
A: That’s like asking what’s better, Slim Jims or steak tips? I prefer them both.
Q: Are clues best dug up or sniffed out?
A: Sniffing is huge in my business – I’m a partner in the Little Detective Agency, in case that needs mentioning. Sniffable clues are in the air just about all the time when it comes to humans, perps or not. The things I’ve learned from sniffing people! Don’t get me started. Digging is more of a specialized thing, important sometimes – take that Greyhound bus I once dug up, and what was with that name, anyway? – but on lots of cases I don’t dig at all, except for my own pleasure.
