Many thanks for your questions yesterday. Answers tomorrow! Meanwhile Sunday is for beginnings, when we take a look at the start of a Peter Abrahams novel, including those written under the Spencer Quinn moniker™. How about Bark To The Future, the most recent Chet and Bernie novel, now available in all formats – in a series that can be read in any order!)?

“Let’s see what this baby can do,” Bernie said.

And there you have it. Bernie’s brilliance, lighting up the whole oil-stained yard at Nixon’s Championship Autobody. Let’s see what this baby can do. Can you imagine anyone else saying that? I sure can’t. I wouldn’t even try, and who knows Bernie better than me? Sometimes humans talk to themselves, as you may or may not know. Humans have a lot going on in their heads. Too much? I couldn’t tell you. But I wouldn’t trade places. Let’s leave it at that. The point is that when they’re talking to themselves they’re trying to dig down through all the too-muchness and get to what’s at the bottom, digging, as it happens, being one of my very best things. Maybe we’ll get to that later. For now, the takeaway is that Bernie talks to himself in front of me. So I know what’s at the bottom of Bernie, way down deep, case closed. Closing cases is what we do, by the way, me and Bernie. We’re partners in the Little Detective Agency – Little on account of that’s Bernie’s last name. Call me Chet, pure and simple. Our cases usually get closed by me grabbing the perp by the pant leg. Although there were no perps around right now and we weren’t even working a case, my teeth got a funny feeling.

    Miss Freyja. I adore older girls. My paw showed me your picture and you are truly beautiful. Perhaps we can arrange a rendezvous; I can borrow my paw’s Amex card. I know he won’t mind.

    Mr Franklin. I would love that. Just to let you know, I can’t eat pork but would love steak or chicken and I am a big fan of seafood.

    My Mom calls me “Kissy Face” if that is any incentive.
