Dog on It: A Chet and Bernie Mystery (Chet and Bernie Mysteries)

Dog on It - Spencer Quinn Fun mystery from the point of view of the detective's dog, Chet. I loved Quinn's use of the Chet as an unreliable narrator. Chet's poor understanding of certain human concepts, tendency to get easily distracted by snacks and balls, and habit of falling asleep during important conversations made the character funny and endearingly dog-like. Quinn wrote all the "good guys" in the story as likable human beings with quirks and flaws, and kept at least a few of the "bad guys" as round characters that were people who'd made bad choices (although some of the vilains were simply cardboard cut-outs of black hats). Overall an engaging read with an interesting perspective and well-written characters I cared enough about to keep coming back to read.
