Beginnings (More)

On Sundays we’ve been doing beginnings – all the Peter Abrahams books in chronological order, including those written under the Spencer Quinn pen name. Here from 2014 – #32, PAW AND ORDER, seventh in the Chet and Bernie series (and second one on their road trip). C&B find themselves in that very dangerous place, Washington D.C.

[“Both smart and funny”
– Booklist]

We blasted out of bayou country, Bernie behind the wheel, me in the shotgun seat. Our ride’s a real old Porsche, the oldest we’ve had in our whole career. The last one got blown up; the one before that went off a cliff. And who can remember the one before that? Not me, amigo, except for how loud train whistles turn out to be from up real close. The point is old Porsches are how we roll at the Little Detective Agency, just one of the things that makes us so successful, leaving out the finances part, where we’ve run into some hiccups I won’t go into now. And don’t get me started on hiccups, which is the annoying thing about them, namely that you can’t stop. What else do you need to know? Bernie’s last name is Little, which is how come we’re the Little Detective Agency. I’m Chet, pure and simple.

    “Both smart and funny” is a good description.

    Washington, D.C.!
    Still a dangerous place to be.

    Home Sweet Home!
    Returned from a trip south to get the “recall” on the car fixed, among other things. I always go to the used book stores and ask for any Peter Abrahams/Spencer Quinn books but only once, in Vancouver, have they had any. This time I got lucky. I found The Fan and Woof and bought them to give away. I wish I could find some of the PA books that I haven’t read. Or do I? They usually scare the bejesus out of me.

    I’ve been lurking and was thrilled by the wonderful quilt, The Talking Stick by Debbie. What talent!
    Also, it was exciting to see pictures of a meeting between Staff and Friend who look like true sisters.
    I’m glad Hobbitz surgery did not get cancelled because of that nasty looking burn and hope for fast healing.
