When Bernie is invited to give the keynote speech at a private investigator convention, his intrepid canine companion is secretly targeted by the high-profile person in charge, an agenda that is complicated by a missing boy, a familiar-looking puppy and the return of Bernie's girlfriend's ex. (This book was previously listed in Forecast.)

Simon and Schuster
The fourth entry in the irresistible New York Times bestselling mystery series featuring canine narrator Chet and his human companion Bernie—“the coolest human/pooch duo this side of Wallace and Gromit” (Kirkus Reviews).

Combining suspense and intrigue with a wonderfully humorous take on the link between man and beast, Spencer Quinn’s exceptional mystery series has captured widespread praise since its New York Times bestselling debut, Dog on It. The Dog Who Knew Too Much marks the duo’s triumphant return in a tale that’s full of surprises.

Bernie is invited to give the keynote speech at the Great Western Private Eye Convention, but it’s Chet that the bigshot P.I. in charge has secret plans for. Meanwhile Chet and Bernie are hired to find a kid who has gone missing from a wilderness camp in the high country. The boy’s mother thinks the boy’s father—her ex—has snatched the boy, but Chet makes a find that sends the case in a new and dangerous direction. As if that weren’t enough, matters get complicated at home when a stray puppy that looks suspiciously like Chet shows up. Affairs of the heart collide with a job that’s never been tougher, requiring our two intrepid sleuths to depend on each other as never before. The Dog Who Knew Too Much is classic Spencer Quinn, offering page-turning entertainment that’s not just for dog-lovers.

Another great Chet and Bernie mystery. I love this series and never get tired of seeing life from Chet's point-of-view.
One of the funniest moments in the book is when Mr. Parsons brings Chet inside Iggy's house; a lot can happen in a very short period of time!

Another thrilling adventure with Chet and Bernie. Such a great combination of plot and character building. I truly enjoy this series and look forward to each new book.

Hardly great literature, but another fun/exciting crime thriller narrated by Chet (the dog) with his usual enthusiasm and misunderstanding of human terms (no wild geese to found in this wild-goose chase). Just fun, light reading.

Delightful as always.

The fourth book in the irresistible bestselling mystery series featuring canine narrator Chet and his human companion Bernie, private investigator. The kid’s mother thinks her ex-husband snatched their son, but Chet’s always reliable nose leads Bernie in a new and dangerous direction. There’s always humour and heart-stopping intrigue in these totally entertaining mysteries. I’m always watching for the next in the series. And Chet is on Facebook and Twitter too. Chet’s tweets can be laugh out loud funny; you get a real glimpse into the day to day workings of a special dog’s mind - https://twitter.com/ChetTheDog

If you love dogs, you'll love this book. I am delighted with all the books and look forward to the new one. I was only sorry that the book wasn't on a CD and Overdrive didn't carry the downloadable. It is a great story to listen too.

Here's another book from the point of view of a dog, but a very interesting dog who helps Bernie solve mysteries. Chet forgets things, but remembers the important things. This was my first Chet and Bernie Mystery book, but I would read others, as it kept me entertained and on the edge.

Fun read! It's the one and only I've read from this series, and though I can imagine I might get bored with the repetive nature of the dog's thoughts sometimes, I did enjoy the dog's version of the story. The plot is somewhat lame, but it still made me smile and laugh.

I really enjoy reading this series. Where else do you get the insight of a dog who helps his master solve mysteries. Chet is a great character and I enjoy reading his "descriptions" of his world. The mystery is just a bonus!
