Library Journal Reviews A Fistful of Collars
Quinn makes this reviewer laugh. Maybe it’s because I am a dog lover, or maybe it’s because he writes from the dog’s point of view. Maybe it’s because he is just plain funny. In their latest adventure (after The Dog Who Knew Too Much), PIs Chet (a border collie) and Bernie (his human companion) are hired to “babysit” Thad Perry, a movie star with a partying streak. Deaths occur, some mourned more than others, and Bernie finds hints that Thad has links to a cold case. As always, Chet and Bernie are true partners who love each other unconditionally. No one can come between them, and no one can put things over on them. You would think that by the fifth series title, which this is, Quinn might have run out of ideas and quips—he hasn’t. VERDICT Although readers will be able to identify the villain before the dénouement, they will enjoy the ride getting there. Fans of Janet Evanovich or Donna Andrews will enjoy Quinn’s humorous and entertaining mysteries.—Susan Hayes, Chattahoochee Valley Libs., GA
