Dog On Itby Quinn, Spencer
Bernie Little manages the Little Detective Agency with the help of his canine partner Chet, a failed K-9 school trainee. When the mother of a missing teenager hires the agency to find her daughter, Chet and Bernie are obstructed in their investigation by the daughter's father, the developer of a large housing estate in the desert. They get help from a pretty reporter with an endless supply of dog treats in a case that includes adventures with a biker gang and an exciting car chase.
Dog On It is a very funny private detective story told from the first person point-of-view, although, in this case canine. The narrator's opinions and actions spring believably from a canine personality whose instincts sometimes trump his best intentions. The characters are likeable and well-defined. Dog On It is the first book in a new mystery series.
