Root Canal

No post today. We forgot that Bernie has a root canal appointment with Dr. Grim. I’m not sure what a root canal is – something about teeth, have you ever seen mine, so big and white? – but Bernie’s not happy about it.  Meanwhile here’s a pre-pub review of Thereby Hangs A Tail from what Admin says is one of the best independent bookstores in the country, The Tattered Cover  in Denver.

“The long awaited second installment of the private investigation
adventures of Bernie and Chet from “Dog On It” (now out in paperback)
is almost here!  Yes, the boys are back in January, kicking bad guy
butt and wagging tail.  I found this book even more fun than the first
one.  This time they’ve become involved in a kidnapping (though no one
is sure if the intended victim was the rich lady or her prize winning
show dog) that blossoms into mayhem and murder.  This will be an
absolute hit, no question, and it will leave fans panting for more
(especially the last few pages on incredibly frustrating foreshadowing
that will drive that is personally driving me NUTS).

Even if you didn’t read “Dog On It”, you’ll like this book.  There are
a few references to some of the things that happened in it, but there
are tons of references to cases we’ve never heard about before
too–it’s all part of a muddled backstory that Chet can’t quite
remember clearly or doesn’t have time to tell you right now.  It just
adds to his canine charisma–he’s a here and now kind of guy.”

    The dentist's name is appropriate.

    Root canals are more boring than painful, thankfully. Congratulations on the Tattered Cover review. They are definitely one of the best bookstores in the country and you couldn't ask for higher praise.

    With a name like Dr. Grim, maybe we will meet him in the book after Thereby Hangs a Tail.

    Because, of course, someone is probably already working on it. And the one after that, too!

    Hi Spencer – I tried to send you a message on your Contact page, but it isn't working. I've also sent you a message on Facebook. Could you email me about your upcoming visit to Barnes & Noble's Mystery Book Club? Thanks.

    Bought "Dog On It" yesterday while shopping at our favorite bookstore. Iggy pointed it out, said he had read a good review in some dog magazine. Almost done, this afternoon — great read. Thanks much for the entertainment and for the good thinking about life, water, over-population, and the potential of dogs! Iggy is very proud of his Halloween costume and asked that I show it off for Chet.
