Tail of Vengeance by Spencer Quinn

First Line: "I think my boyfriend is cheating on me."

Business is slow, so when Bernie is asked by a beautiful woman to find evidence that her boyfriend is cheating on her, Bernie takes the job. He doesn't want Chet's supply of dog food to run low. The only problem is... Bernie has no idea what he's getting himself into. He just knows Chet will be right there by his side.

Followers of this series know that Chet has mentioned the Teitelbaums several times ("That's a story for another time"), and we finally get the scoop on that particular case. Oh, what a case it is-- even if you've never heard of the Teitelbaums!

Spencer Quinn's digital short stories are perfect on multiple levels. For fans, it helps tide them over until the next Chet and Bernie book. For dog lovers, there's no author better at getting inside the head of a canine. Mystery lovers have something to sink their teeth into, and those readers who can't get enough laugh-out-loud humor should be satisfied as well.

Love mysteries? Love dogs and humor? Feeling a bit hesitant to read a book written from a dog's point of view? "Tail of Vengeance" is the perfect vehicle to take for a test drive. After you've read it, chances are you'll be going back to the dealership to trade in the subcompact for the luxury sedan.

  1. Cathy - This sounds like the perfect kind of very light mystery to put in there between the darker ones...

    1. It is. I find it impossible to read very dark mysteries all the time.

  2. I love Spencer Quinn's books. I buy them and keep them on the shelf for when I want a real treat!

    1. I think most of us have authors that we savor like that, Carol! :-)
