Reviews for A Fistful of Collars
A fun canine caper
With a nose for trouble and a dogged determination to uncover the truth (double pun intended!) A Fistful of Collars is the entertaining fifth installment of the mystery series featuring Chet and Bernie. Hand picked to babysit a visiting movie star, Thad Perry, by the Mayor, Chet and Bernie soon discover the Hollywood bad boy is hiding a deadly secret.
As always, the biggest draw of this series for me is it's telling from Chet's unique perspective. Despite Quinn restricting himself to only Chet's observations, half understood sentences and charming random associations the story unfolds fluidly. It's a fairly straight forward mystery involving a cold case, drugs, blackmail and a cover up that leads to two brutal deaths and Bernie pinned to a warehouse door by a knife embedded in his leg.
In Bernie's personal life, Suzie has reluctantly accepted a promotion to the Washington Post, leaving him out of sorts despite their decision to continue their romance long distance. Bernie's six year old son, Charlie land's a role in Perry's movie and proves to be a talented actor, something his ex wife, Leda, is eager to encourage.
A Fistful of Collars is an entertaining tail tale of canine companionship and mystery. While Chet occasionally refers to events in previous books, this can be enjoyed as a standalone though I recommend readers being with Dog on It by Shelley Cusbert
