Mrs. Publicist: Fifteenth of the month – time for What’s In A Name, where Spence takes us behind the scenes in the Chet and Bernie series.

Spencer Quinn: But not too far!

Mrs. P: Meaning into the shadowy depths of your subconscious?

SQ: Now you’re scaring me. Today I thought we’d discuss Victor D. Ferretti, the high-up federal investigator in PAW AND ORDER.

Mrs. P: The one who uses the expression about the tail wagging the dog in Chet’s presence?

SQ: That’s him.

Mrs. P: Chet got sidetracked by that, as I recall, possibly missing the rest of the scene.

SQ: A whole chapter, I think. As for Ferretti the investigator, the inspiration was ferret, of course, a relentless digger. I thought the formality of Victor D. went nicely with that, kind of the way the animals in The Wind in the Willows are dressed so tweedily.

Mrs. P: Thanks, Spence! See you next month for more of What’s In A Name!
