The Sound and the Furry: A Chet and Bernie Mystery (Chet and Bernie Mysteries)

We rated this book:


The Sound and the Furry says it all. Either you will love this book’s sense of humor or you will sheer off before you are contaminated.

For those of you who come innocent into the world of Chet and Bernie, this is the sixth book in which they feature as PIs in thriller mode. Chet is the first-person narrator. He’s one of those giant dogs much loved by police forces as peace-keepers. Had it not been for the untimely appearance of a cat, Chet would have qualified as a member of the K9 squad with flying colors. Now he’s struck with Bernie who does his best but is often hampered by his inability to smell and hear with canine acuity.

When this joke first took to the pages, it actually flew with considerable flair. Seeing everything from a dog’s point of view generated a surprising number of opportunities for enjoyment. But as each new title appeared, a certain staleness crept into the format. Relocating us to Bayou country to meet up with local stereotypes and the occasional weasel-mouthed oilman does little to revive the franchise. Go back to Dog on It which is fun.
