San Francisco Book Review: To Fetch A Thief
Who knew? I had no idea that dogs could be as good at detective work as cats! Granted, as a rule, they do have larger noses, and they’re way good at tracking, but all the dogs I’ve known and loved have a rather short attention span. They’re easily distracted, and have difficulties with words that have more than one meaning. But that’s part of their charm.
Chet (the Jet) adds insouciance and a slightly world-weary cynicism to his narration of the exploits of himself and his human partner, Bernie Little. He also exhibits a terrific, wry sense of humor, which had me laughing out loud very frequently. I fell in love within the first ten pages – even if I didn’t have a clue what exactly was happening.
A simple divorce case leads Chet and Bernie to a circus and before you know it, they’re right in the middle of a kidnapping and murder. A promising lead takes them to Mexico and BIG trouble.
Chet proves to be the hero, finding the missing elephant and bringing her safely back to civilization, despite his occasional lapses and distractions. Chet and Bernie are a very good team, indeed. I’m looking forward to their next adventure!
