This is one of my favorite new authors. The series is about a P.I. team of a human and his dog. It's written from the dog's point of view so it has an endearing and charming quality to it. The plot kept me encased and would not let me put the book down. Hardly has a fictional book made me laugh so much. Chet (the dog) is one that anybody would want for in a pet. Completely loyal to his human no matter what the situation they are in.
Canine detective Chet accompanies his human police officer partner, Bernie, on a first assignment involving the disappearance of a teenage girl who ran with a bad crowd, a case complicated by Bernie's dysfunctional personal life.
