Paw and Order on CD

Paw and Order
by Spencer Quinn [Compact Disc Quinn]

The latest (2014) book in the Chet and Bernie series, narrated by Chet the Dog, takes the duo away from their comfortable and arid valley in the Arizona desert, and drops them into Washington D.C. Trying to repair his relationship with his girlfriend, Susie Sanchez, who took up a job offer to move to Washington and be a reporter for the Wasington Post, Bernie and his partner Chet drive from the site of their last case -- the Louisiana Bayou country, cross-country to surprise Susie in her new East coast environment. When Bernie is soon framed for a murder, associated with a story that Susie was working on, the detective and his canine partner end up sniffing around the politically-charged environment of our Capitol City. As usual, I listened to this as a book-on-cd version, rather than reading it in hardcopy. Narrator James Frangione does a marvelous job of telling the story from Chet the Dog's point-of-view -- Frangione captures Chet's doggie mindset perfectly, without distracting the reader/listener from the mystery elements. Great fun, and a great new chapter in the lives of Chet and Bernie -- I can't wait for the next one! -- recommended by Scott C. - Bennett Martin Public Library [ see Scott's Reviewer Profile and more of his reviews ]
