In the newest adventure in the New York Times bestselling mystery series that the Los Angeles Times says is "nothing short of masterful," Chet and Bernie find that Hollywood has gone to the dogs.

Everyone'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.

While Tinseltown bad boy Thad Perry is in town shooting a big-budget Western, Bernie and Chet have to keep him out of trouble. But soon they discover Thad has a mysterious connection to the Valley, and the only people who know his secrets keep turning up dead before they can talk.

As Bernie's love life goes long-distance and Chet's late-night assignations give rise to an unexpected dividend, it's all our two sleuths can do to keep the actor 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 topnotch 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.

One of the best Chet and Bernie mysteries. A little darker and more obscure than the other books, but a great story overall. Looking forward to the next one.

love this series, funny, light hearted mystery. Chet is like able and if you are a dog lover this will make you howl.

A mystery from a dog's perspective might sound little too cutesy, but the author hits it bang on- no fluff, good pace, well constructed story, and some truly laugh out loud lines.

I love Chet. So charming, so naïve, and so darn happy about it. Reading these books always makes me think we’d do a lot better in life if we were more like Chet.

Another addition to a great series. These books are so much fun to read. A Private Eye series told from the point of view of the PI's dog Chet. Chet is a fabulous character and the stories are fun mysteries. I recommend them all - this title is the best so far I would say.
