On Sundays we take a look at the start of a Peter Abrahams novel including those written under the Spencer Quinn moniker. How about the latest Chet and Bernie novel – Of Mutts And Men? (Which begins on an existential note.)

A rooftop chase? Who’s got it better than me?


An Amazon Reader …

… on Of Mutts and Men, the new Chet and Bernie:

“Dog lovers or not:
I’ve read all ten of the books in this series and wouldn’t think of not reading each new one. I love love love this dog, Chet and the relationship between him and his owner, Bernie. I felt Spencer Quinn wrote Chet’s voice particularly well in this book…and it all turns out so honest, sometimes tender, often funny, a little scary, once in a while sad. I laughed out loud, I shed a few tears. And enjoyed every minute. What a team!”

Hospice Scene

There seems to be some interest in the hospice scene in Of Mutts and Men. Here’s how it begins:

“Sheriff Gooden?” said Lois. “You’ve got visitors.”

He turned his head our way. His eyes were dull and lightless, and I smelled something strong and not good coming from inside him – not pee or poop or puke or any of that normal stuff – which actually doesn’t smell bad to me, interesting being the way to put it, always worth a sniff . This particular bad smell was something I’d smelled in a human or two before. It was the smell of a living thing inside them, a living thing that wasn’t them – a scary thought. Had I smelled something similar in a few members of the nation within? Uh-oh. My mind stopped right there. I have the kind of mind that looks out for me, at least most of the time.
