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 handsome--and notoriously badly behaved--Thad Perry. When the mayor decides that someone needs to keep an eye on Thad so that he doesn'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 complicated--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 Bernie's relationship with his longtime girlfriend Suzie goes long-distance, and Chet's late-night assignations appear to have resulted in an unexpected dividend, it'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.

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.
