The Chet & Bernie mystery series combines suspense and intrigue with a wonderfully humorous take on the link between man and dog. With his doggy ways and his endearingly hardboiled voice, Chet (the dog) is full of heart and occasionally prone to mischief. He is intensely loyal to Bernie (the human), who, though distracted by issues that Chet has difficulty understanding — like divorce, child custody, and other peculiar human concerns — is enormously likable himself, in his flawed, all-too-human way.  


It’s (now) no mystery that Spencer Quinn is none other than Peter Abrahams, highly acclaimed author of psychological thrillers, YA books and much more.   As Spencer Quinn, Peter Abrahams writes the Chet and Bernie mystery series, the first of which, Dog On It,  reached #7 on the New York Times bestseller list. The second Chet and Bernie book,Thereby Hangs a Tail, came out in January 2010, and was also a New York Times bestseller, as was the third, To Fetch a Thief (September 2010). In a starred review, Publishers Weekly said To Fetch A Thief “radiates pure comedic genius via Chet’s doggy bright narrative. You don’t have to be a dog lover to enjoy this deliciously addictive series.” Book four in the series, The Dog Who Knew Too Much, will be published in September 2011. Abrahams lives with his family on Cape Cod. Chet the Dog has a website –, and that Peter guy does too –
