Dog on It by Spencer Quinn

This book is a fun read, told from a dogs’ point of view. Chet, the dog detective, goes on crazy adventures and solves crimes, with his partner Bernie. With his doggy ways and his endearingly hardboiled voice, Chet is full of heart and prone to mischief, he's a dog. He is intensely loyal to Bernie, 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.

This debut novel is light-hearted and fun to read; it is also well written with great characters and suspense. Dog On It, is the first of a planned series. I’m sure I’ll read them all.

  1. Sounds like a fun read! Now on my to-get-list.

    Have you read "Felidae" by Akif Pirincci? If not, it's a very good, multi layered, and rather unpleasant in parts, read about cats who solve a multiple murder mystery. A very interesting book.
