“Outstanding….Quinn (suspense novelist Peter Abrahams) manages to sell the conceit of a literate canine narrator by dint of intelligent writing and on-the-mark pacing and tone.”
--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Human cunning and canine smarts triumph once again.”
--Kirkus Reviews

"A charming tale."
--People Magazine

“A thoroughly entertaining comic mystery. A must-read, of course, for everyone who likes a canine presence in their crime novels.”

“How could you not enjoy a doggone good tale like this?”

also, das war jetzt schon das 4. Bernie und Chet Buch, das ich mir gegönnt habe, und "A fistfull of collars" hab ich mir auch schon bestellt. Normalerweise bin ich ja gar nicht dafür, Tiere zu vermenschlichen, aber Chet hat es geschafft, sich mit seiner etwas konfusen, mit kurzer Aufmerksamkeitsspanne ausgestatteten Art, in mein Herz zu plaudern! Jedes Mal, wenn ich eines der Spencer Quinn Bücher der Little Detective Agency lese, kann ich mir einfach zu gut vorstellen, daß meine beiden Hunde auch so in etwa vor sich hin "denken"... Man liest sich einfach immer lächelnd oder schmunzelnd durch Chets Gedanken, finde ich. Daß die Bücher daneben auch immer spannend sind und mit guten Detektivgeschichten aufwarten, erhöht den Genuß.
Volle Punktezahl für Bernie und Chet, hoffentlich gibt's bald mehr von den beiden!

HASH(0x8f995a50) von 5 Sternen The fourth Chet and Bernie mystery 6. September 2011
Von TChris - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
A detective story narrated by a dog. What could be better? Apart from his impressive understanding of the English language and his ability to narrate books, Chet is very much a dog: loyal, forgetful, easily distracted, always hungry, fascinated by odors and averse to loud noises, often puzzled by humans but usually willing to give them the benefit of the doubt. Chet prefers a clear head to deep thought. He's a literal thinker: when he hears that someone is wearing ratty clothing, Chet looks for the rats; when he hears he's in a one-horse town, Chet looks for the horse; when someone comments that a character's behavior stinks, Chet wonders why he can't smell it.

Chet's partner in the Little Detective Agency is Bernie Little. Bernie is hired to protect a woman from her ex-husband. The mission changes when the woman's son disappears on a camping trip. With Chet's help, Bernie searches for the missing boy (searching for things, particularly hot dogs, is a task at which Chet excels). When the search leads to the discovery of a murder victim in a gold mine, Bernie begins to suspect that the woman hasn't been wholly truthful about the reason he was hired. A conspiracy is soon unveiled that threatens to separate Chet from Bernie. As the story progresses, Chet has some solo adventures while maintaining a stream of consciousness commentary on items of interest to the canine nation.

This isn't the kind of book you want to overanalyze. Spencer Quinn has a dry sense of humor that matches my own. He's a keen observer of dogs; his take on how dogs think kept me laughing from the first page to the last. The Dog Who Knew Too Much is meant as an entertaining romp and that's the spirit in which I enjoyed it. The mystery tends to get lost in the midst of Chet's descriptions of the world as interpreted by a dog, but it's Chet, not the thin plot, that carries the book.

This is apparently the fourth in a series of Chet and Bernie books. I'm so fond of Chet it made me want to read them all.

HASH(0x8f995ab0) von 5 Sternen Another Dazzling Dog Tale 11. September 2011
Von Roberta M. Austin - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
The past couple years August has brought added anticipation. I am more than ready for my beach vacation to relax with a pile of books. Also, there has been a new Chet and Bernie mystery to read and review.
I was excited to recently receive the fourth installment of Chet's adventures a few days ago. THE DOG WHO KNEW TOO MUCH by Spencer Quinn went to the top of my mountainous reading pile. I would have gulped the novel down in one day, but a silly thing known as my day job at a public library got in the way.
For readers who have not had the pleasure of reading Spencer Quinn's charming tales, Chet is a dog and the narrator. Bernie is a private investigator who always seems to fall for get rich quick schemes that even Chet knows are doomed to failure. Chet keen senses and skills do help track down the bad guys. Bernie has his own intuitive skills and bravery to overcome obstacles and save the day.
With THE DOG WHO KNEW TOO MUCH, Bernie turns down an offer to sell Chet, but hires on as a bodyguard. The action quickly changes gears as the focus of Chet and Bernie's case becomes a young boy who goes missing at a camp. Is the boy a victim of bullies or is his father hatching a nefarious plan in a custody battle? As Chet and Bernie pursue the clues, they realize they could become crime victims themselves.
As a dog, Chet takes all conversations literally, which provides comic relief and heartwarming charm. I am not usually a "dog person", but I could not help loving Chet from the start.
The author adds some background to help those who have not read the earlier novels in the series, but you will not get the full effect unless you start with DOG ON IT. You won't want to miss the humor, suspense and pure fun.
Spencer Quinn is the pseudonym for writer Peter Abrahams. I am sorry to say I have not read any books by Mr. Abrahams, but I will have to add them to my to be read pile very soon. You can be sure I will read the next Chet and Bernie story as soon as it is available.

HASH(0x8f995ee8) von 5 Sternen Oh My Books! Review 6. September 2011
Von Gaby - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I've been meaning to read Chet and Bernie Mystery books but never had the opportunity, until I got book #4 of the series from Simon and Schuster Galley Grab. I had heard great things about it, and it didn't disappointed me.

The Dog Who Knew Too Much continues the story of Chet, a dog, and Bernie, his human. They work together as private investigators and in this case, they have to found a missing boy. The mother think it's her ex-husband fault, but the case take an awful direction when Bernie is sent to prison and Chet is left alone!

I simply loved Chet. He's the narrator and is totally cute. Yes, he's a dog, and the narrator. I had a smile all the time while reading him, the way he saw things as a dog was just hilarious!

"Do you feel that breeze? Where's that breeze coming from?!? Oh, it's my tail!"

"Sometimes human pat you without knowing they're doing it. This had the feeling of one of those, as thought the hand was acting on its own. Nothing crazy about that: my tail does the same thing."

The story is the typical mystery that begins with a missing child and ends with drugs dealers and dog robbery. I'd say it's a cozy mystery because Chet is a lovely and fun character, but at the same time Bernie is very serious.

Overall, I loved The Dog Who Knew Too Much! I wish I'd have read the first three books before reading this one, but it wasn't necessary to understand the story. Chet is my new favorite character, and if you are a dog lover, I think you will love him too!

HASH(0x8f99b2d0) von 5 Sternen 3 1/2 Stars --I Continue To Love Chet, The Plot Not So Much! 25. April 2013
Von bobbewig - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
The Dog Who Knew Too Much is the fourth book by Spencer Quinn in a mystery series featuring Chet and Bernie, who are partners in The Little Detective Agency. What makes this book (as well as the series to-date) a lot of fun and uniquely enjoyable is that the detective, Chet the Jet, the narrator in the book, is a very lovable and wise dog. He's in charge of security in the partnership, and Bernie, his human partner (and owner but don't tell Chet that) is the planner and chief decision maker.

As was true for me in the previous three books in this series, I continue to love Chet (in particular) and Bernie. Chet, with his doggy ways and his endearingly hard-boiled voice, is full of heart, occasionally prone to mischief and intensely loyal to Bernie. Bernie is also a very likable guy, though flawed in his "human" ways that Chet at times finds difficult to understand.

In The Dog Who Knew Too Much, Chet and Bernie are hired to find a kid who has gone missing from a wilderness camp in the high country. However, for the first time in this series, I was somewhat disappointed in this book's plot. This disappointment stems from the fact that the mystery the book intends to solve is too simplistic and predictable.

While I don't consider The Dog Who Knew Too Much to be on par with the first three books in this series, I remain a big fan of Chet and Bernie and plan to go along with them on their next case in A Fistful Of Collars (the fifth book in the series) and in their upcoming new case in The Sound And The Furry, which will take place in September.

HASH(0x8f99b3b4) von 5 Sternen There's more than one way to skin a cat! 13. Oktober 2011
Von Robert Carlberg - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
The fourth Chet and Bernie mystery is far and away the best one yet, with a believable story (the last one, To Fetch a Thief: A Chet and Bernie Mystery, got a little FAAAR-fetched here-and-there), a good role for my favorite sidekick Susie Sanchez, and of course Chet is right where he belongs -- in the lead role of the story! Is that great or what? Bernie gets sidelined for a good deal of the plot, which leaves Chet-the-Jet to step up the the plate and run with the ball -- something he's really REALLY good at.

Nobody writes dogs better than Quinn, with real affection and an uncanny understanding of the canine mind. Unlike Peter Mayle's A Dog's Life Chet does not take on the pretensions of being a human, but is gloriously happy to be of The Tribe Within the Tribe. The fact that the plot entertains as a real mystery story is just rawhide laces on a slipper. There's even a Shia Labeouf moment at the end. Honestly, what's not to like?
