Readers are still discovering the Chet and Bernie books, as you can see from this recent Amazon review of Dog On It. That’s encouraging to the guy who writes them!
“5.0 out of 5 stars My new favorite character….Chet! This is a great detective story with plenty of action. Chet wrote the story and narrates it. He is a very funny dog!”

The e-book version of Dog On It, first in the Chet and Bernie series, is on sale for a couple of weeks at $1.99. I believe the publisher did this because they believed there were potential readers out there like Michael, who posted this on Amazon.

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™. There seem to be some newcomers to Chet and Bernie, drawn in perhaps by the $1.99 e-book February sale of Dog On It, first into series. So maybe this is a good time to mention that the Chet and Bernie series can be read in any order. For example, newcomers, you could skip right from Dog On It to Bark To The Future, the most recent. It starts like this:

“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.


An Introduction

Have I mentioned that the e-book of Dog On It, first in the Chet and Bernie series, is on sale until the end of the month for $1.95? Perhaps a good way to introduce newcomers to the series? Here’s what one such newcomer had to say yesterday on Amazon:

“5.0 out of 5 stars Chet and Bernie!

Verified Purchase
I read this book while waiting for the other series I read to catch up – now I have ANOTHER series to read. Not what I expected at all. Once I got the rhythm, it was very fun! Looking forward to the rest of this series….”
