Starred Review of To Fetch A Thief From Publishers Weekly
To Fetch a Thief: A Chet and Bernie Mystery
Spencer Quinn, Atria, $25 (320p) ISBN 978-1-4391-5707-7
When Peanut, the elephant star of the Drummond Family Traveling Circus, goes missing, along with elephant tamer Uri DeLeath, Uri’s tearful clown partner, Popo, seeks the help of canine detective Chet the Jet and Chet’s human partner in cracking crimes, Bernie Little of the Little Detective Agency, in Quinn’s terrific third Chet and Bernie mystery set in “the Valley” of an unnamed Western state (after January 2010’s Thereby Hangs a Tail). Sgt. Rick Torres of Missing Persons adds his considerable expertise, but it’s Chet’s fearless nose for clues that leads them on a strange odyssey that becomes downright hairy after Uri’s found dead in the desert from the bite of an illegal African puff adder. Quinn, the pseudonym of suspense author Peter Abrahams (End of Story), radiates pure comedic genius via Chet’s doggy bright narrative. You don’t have to be a dog lover to enjoy this deliciously addictive series. (Sept.)
