Chet and Bernie—everybody’s favorite human-canine detective team—return in an e-original short story that gives Chet’s best friend Iggy his moment in the spotlight.

Iggy is a dog who doesn’t get out much, so it’s big news when elderly Mr. Parsons knocks on Bernie’s door to say that Iggy has vanished. In the search for Iggy, Chet and Bernie find Mrs. Parsons unconscious on her bedroom floor, in need of urgent medical care. But it’s only when they arrive at the hospital that things get really interesting.

With a jewel thief making short work of hospital patients’ valuables, it seems that Iggy is not alone in disappearing right out from under somebody’s nose. Suspects are plentiful and witnesses are few. But when little Iggy reappears, tail wagging, it turns out he holds the key to solving the entire affair.

In addition to a clever caper and the return of much beloved characters, this gem of a short story is a testament to the enduring power of friendship in all its forms: neighbor to neighbor, man to dog, dog to dog. Here is a treat you’ll devour in one sitting—rather like Chet with a juicy steak that’s been momentarily left unattended!

Chet was up to his usual doggy wisecracking and misunderstanding but this was just too short to be very interesting. I think I will stick to the full books and skip the eShort stories from now on.

There’s a pet food commercial on TV that features a number of dogs running and leaping. I don’t remember the name of the product but I love to watch the dogs and, every time I see it, I just naturally think of Chet because he takes such joy in life, the way those dogs look like they’re doing. Chet—and, of course, Bernie—are two of my favorite detectives and it’s always a treat to see them again. This time, their neighbor dog (and Chet’s pal), Iggy, has disappeared and his owner is desperate to find him for his very ill wife. Bernie and Chet take on the job and soon find a second mystery to look into. Our heroes make short work of all this (after all, this IS a short story) and I was quite satisfied with this little visit with the guys. Fair warning to those who count pages—this story takes up 24 0f the 45 pages and the rest is a blurb and excerpt of the following novel, The Sound and the Furry, along with a few other things.

These books are good fun and as they are written from the dogs point of view extremely entertaining.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE Chet and Bernie! It is supposed to be for young adults, but I don't know anyone...of any age that wouldn't get a kick out of these books. I love that the whole series is told through the eyes of Chet (the dog). And, as huge dog lover, find myself laughing out loud at his "Chetisms". A must read if you are a dog lover!!!!

Although not as satisfying as a full novel, this was certain worth reading. I would call it a short story rather than a book. All the Chet stories are charming, and this one is, too.

The Chet stories are the best dog mysteries I have read. This short story is an excellent example.

This is a charming mini-mystery, but the "voice" it features is Chet, not Iggy. I was looking forward to hearing Iggy's point of view. Mr. Quinn, please give voice to Iggy next time around!

As much as I love the Chet & Bernie mysteries, it is nice to read about the supporting characters too. This short eBook helps clear up a little about what's been happening to Bernie's neighbor and even gets housebound Iggy into the action. A nice, short read while waiting for The Sound & the Furry.
