Produktbeschreibungen

Pressestimmen

"Nothing short of masterful.... Sequels are a given, and a must. " -- Los Angeles Times

"A winning debut...that fans of classic mysteries are sure to appreciate." -- Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Stalwart, often mischevious narrator Chet's amusing, perceptive canine take on [the novel's] human characters should appeal to hard-boiled fans and canine fanciers alike." -- Kirkus Reviews

"[Dog On It] will delight dog-loving mystery readers, but the book is also an excellent PI tale, dogs aside....A great sleuth and always upbeat, Chet may well be one of the most appealing new detectives on the block, but Bernie us a close runner-up. Excellent and fully fleshed primary and secondary characters, a consistently doggy view of the world, and a sprightly pace make this a not-to-be-missed debut. Essential for all mystery collections and for dog lovers everywhere." -- Booklist (starred review)

"At last, a dog lover's mystery that portrays dogs as they really are....Quinn's characters are endearing, and his narrative is intriguing, fast-moving, and well written. Even cat lovers will find it entertaining. [Dog On It] is highly recommend." -- Library Journal (starred review)

"[Dog On It] features the most winning narrator I've come across in a long time...[and] manages to ratchet up some real suspense." -- Christian Science Monitor

"I'm not a dog fancier, but I had a great time reading this book....Chet is a hoot -- or should I say a howl." -- Boston Globe

Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
What would Bernie Little, a down-on-his-luck Private Investigator do without his associate in affairs, his best friend Chet?
"Who is Chet?" You may ask.
Chet is a member of - how he loves to call it - "the Nation within the Nation".
"And can this Chet-boy give us some further explanation on this Nation-thing?" You may ask.
Oh yes, he can, but You will have some difficulty to understand him.
Why that???
Easy - because...Chet is a DOG.
And it' s him who is the narrator of all the books, 4 until today, with the Bernie Little Investigation as protagonists.
Chet was an almost completely trained K-9 dog, best leaper of his class, certification prepared, sicure job, but then there was that "incident".
He doesn't like to speak a lot about it, we will only learn that there was a cat involved and some blood, maybe, too...
That was the end of his K-9 career before it had begun.
But then came Bernie, ex-special forces, divorced, one boy-child called Charlie, a Private Investigator with absolutly NO talent to take the Best from his clients - their money.
So Bernie needs urgently and almost always the help from his Best Friend, Chet.
And Chet is more that eager to lend him a helping paw...

In their first adventure together, Bernie and Chet have to investigate the strange disappearance of Madison, a normally well-behaved, gifted student, who didn't come home after school and her divorced mother is very anxious about this. Shortly after Bernie and Chet have taken the job - making money is for some reason our 4-legged hero can't understand very important at this moment - Madison reappears with some story that doesn't fit at all.

Not Noir 22. Februar 2009
Von Rita Sydney - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
The 41 reviewers who preceded me pretty much say it all about this book. It's WONDERFUL. I just want to add a couple thoughts.

I don't think this book can be categorized as noir. Chet, the dog, is not so much hard-boiled as simply being his animal self. Unsentimental. Non-judgmental. Ready to eat at every opportunity.

The dog-as-narrator conceit was used most realistically by the author in that Chet is not made to be (or think he is) smarter than Bernie. Most charming was the way Mr. Quinn captures the spirit of Chet who lives in the moment, filled with a joie de vivre at the pleasures of life: fresh water, riding shotgun in a car, a good nap.

Please, Amazon, find out when the next Chet and Bernie story is due. I want to pre-order.

A Great New Shaggy Gumshoe 27. Januar 2009
Von Peter A. Greene - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
This is great new voice in detective fiction.

And in detective fiction, voice is critical. At the end of the day, we come back to Kinsey Milhone or Stephanie Plum or Marcus Didius Falco because we want to spend more time with the character.

Chet is a great central voice. Quinn doesn't play cute and he doesn't gimmick up the story. There are many ways that the notion of a canine main character could go horribly wrong, and Quinn avoids them all.

Chet is out of the gumshoe tradition, looking out for his down-on-his-luck partner Bernie:

"She got out of the car, a tall woman with long fair hair and a smell of flowers and lemons, plus a trace of another smell that reminded me of hat happens only sometimes to the females in my world. What would that be like, having it turned on all the time? Probably drive you crazy. I glanced at Bernie, watching her, patting his hair into place. Oh, Bernie."

Chet has the hard-boiled nerve, the observational skills, the running internal commentary of a classic detective, but he has his appropriately dog-like qualities as well-- an occasional attention span issue, as well a tendency to act, now and then, literally before he realizes he has done it.

The set-up of the mystery is interesting, the solution interesting but not entirely surprising. And Quinn does fall back on one whopper of a coincidence to save the day at one point.

But Chet and Bernie are a fun and entertaining team, and Quinn is a prose master. If you read detective fiction for the main character or because you believe it's where much of the best writing is done, this one is for you. It probably adds a bit if you have a dog of your own, but that's not a requirement to enjoy this excellent first outing.

Talking dogs 6. September 2012
Von Ronald Dotson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I picked up this book because as a life-long dog owner the concept of a story presented from the dog's point of view intrigues me. My first exposure to this was Garth Stein's "The Art of Racing in the Rain", which was an excellent book. I found "Dog on It" to be entertaining but not as well written as Stein's book, perhaps because it didn't grab you emotionally like the other book. Some of the scenarios in the story were improbable, much like Dudley Doright showing up just in the nick of time. On the other hand, the thought processes presented for the dog were probably spot on, being frequently scattered and distracted by all manner of stimuli. It was a fun read and I'll likely pick up others in the series, but I wouldn't call it an award winner. A good way to wile away an afternoon. I do think you can easily cheer for Chet and Bernie as the heroes.

A Fun New Mystery Series 10. April 2009
Von My2Cents - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Dog On It: A Chet and Bernie Mystery, by Spencer Quinn is a fun new debut novel.

This fun mystery introduces two memorable characters: Chet the Jet, the narrator is a lovable dog who failed K-9 school. The story is told from Chet's point of view. Chet works cheap, (just feed him well), he doesn't talk back, and is a loyal companion to Bernie.

Bernie Little, part owner of Little Detective Agency. He is divorced and strapped for money because of his alimony and child support debts. Bernie is hired to find a fifteen-year old girl who disappears, reappears and disappears again. When Madison disappears the second time Chet and Bernie are on the case and the antics begin. Chet knows were Madison is but he can't speak so he can't tell his owner, and since he doesn't understand why they are looking for her, he often falls asleep at inappropriate times during the investigation. There is one touching part where Chet ends up in an animal shelter and learns more than he cares to about euthanasia.

The Chet and Bernie characters are memorable, they'll make you laugh when you least expect it. If you like fun mysteries, and have a soft spot for lovable pooches (especially one with a nose for solving mysteries), Dog on It, is a fun story that is sure to please. I look forward to the next Chet and Bernie book in this new, fun series.

RECOMMENDED
