"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)

Mr. Cheddar (our feline extraordinaire and online celeb!!) of course was not amused or impressed by this point.
From a human perspective though, it was a good read for the most part. Seeing the world at "dog level" was a fun way to explore this mystery.
I'm taking off one star as a couple of the passages in the book were just too gruesome and sad for me to read.
*** SPOILER: When Chet was dog-napped and also when he was almost euthanized. I skimmed through those parts, they were too graphic and disturbing for me.
I don't know if I'd read more from this series but I'm glad I read this one.
Felines rock but canines like Chet DO have their moments!!! ;-)
Geraldine Helen Hartman, author and lover of felines >^^<
Chet's attempts to help his equally bumbling "partner" Berny solve the mystery of the crime are often hilarious and sometimes touching.
This is a thoroughly entertaining and amusing read and I recommend it to all dog and mystery lovers. - Can hardly wait for Spencer Quinn's next instalment in the promised series.
