Everyoneâ€™s favorite detective team returns in a new
adventure as canine narrator Chet and his human partner P.I.
Bernie Little find that Hollywood has gone to the dogs.
Hoping to bring some Tinseltown money to the Valley, the
mayor lures a movie studio to town to shoot their next
production, a big-budget Western in the classic tradition.
The star is none other than ruggedly handsomeâ€”and
notoriously badly behavedâ€”Thad Perry. When the mayor decides
that someone needs to keep an eye on Thad so that he doesnâ€™t
get into too much trouble, Bernie and Chet are handpicked
for the job. The money is good but something smells fishy,
and what should have been a simple matter of babysitting
soon gets more complicatedâ€”especially when they discover
that Thad has a mysterious connection to the Valley that
nobody wants to talk about. What kind of secret could Thad
have left behind when he went to Hollywood to seek fame and
fortune? The only people who might know the answer have a
bad habit of turning up dead before they can talk.
As Bernieâ€™s relationship with his longtime girlfriend Suzie
goes long-distance, and Chetâ€™s late-night assignations
appear to have resulted in an unexpected dividend, itâ€™s all
our two sleuths can do to keep Thad and his motley entourage
of yes-men, handlers, and hangers-on in their sights. Worst
of all, Thad is a self-proclaimed cat person, and his feline
friend Brando has taken an instant dislike to Chet.
Like the winning books before it, this fifth book in the
series combines a top-notch mystery with genuine humor and a
perceptive take on the relationship between human and dog
that will stay with you long after the case is solved.
