Heart of Barkness Tour: Outer Cape Cod!


July 16th, 2019 Posted 7:37 am

Today from 1PM to 3PM at Yellow Umbrella Books in lovely Chatham, on Cape Cod. Should be fun!

Meanwhile, here’s the latest Amazon review (5-star):

“I’m so glad they’re back! The chet and Bernie books are the best books, fiction or nonfiction, ever written about the love between a man and his dog. and no, these stories are not “about” the love between a man and his dog. They are mysteries, and well written too, with consistently well drawn characters and tense dark moments for man and dog.

The simpler and more fundamental the essence of something, the more difficult it is to recreate it, no matter the creative form. Spencer quinn exhibits true mastery in this series. Every page describes without “describing” the joy, confusion, more joy, and excitement as one earthling and his beloved sidekick go about their days taking care of the good guys and getting even with the bad guys. The chet and Bernie books are the quickest way to a smile when the skies have been grey a little too long.
Thank you Peter Abrahams/Spencer Quinn for this new book. Because no one can do it better.”


Today in Chatham on Cape Cod

Spence will be part of the annual Christmas stroll, signing (and paw-printing, if he remembers the kit) at Yellow Umbrella Books on Main St. from 1-3. Come see the seals off Lighthouse Beach! And maybe blood in the water if any of the great whites have lingered before heading wherever they head.
