PAW AND ORDER by Spencer Quinn - SIGNED FIRST EDITION BOOKSee all titles by Spencer Quinn.
In the seventh book in the brilliant New York Times
bestselling mystery series, canine narrator Chet and P.I. Bernie
journey to Washington, DC, and the dog-eat-dog world of our nation’s
Stephen King has called Chet “a
canine Sam Spade full of joie de vivre.” Robert B. Parker dubbed Spencer
Quinn’s writing “major league prose.” Now the beloved team returns in
another suspenseful novel that finds Chet sniffing around the capital
city and using his street smarts to uncover a devilish plot.
Chet and Bernie pay a visit to
Bernie’s girlfriend, Suzie Sanchez, a crack reporter living in far-off
Washington, DC. She’s working on a big story she can’t talk about, but
when her source, a mysterious Brit with possible intelligence
connections, runs into trouble of the worst kind, Bernie suddenly finds
himself under arrest.
Meanwhile Chet gets to know a
powerful DC operative who may or may not have the goods on an ambitious
politician. Soon Chet and Bernie are sucked into an international
conspiracy, battling unfamiliar forces under the blinking red eyes of a
strange bird that Chet notices from the get-go but seems to have slipped
by everybody else. Most menacing of all is Barnum, a guinea pig with
the fate of the nation in his tiny paws.
As Harry Truman famously quipped, “If you want a friend in Washington, get a dog.” Too bad he didn’t get to meet Chet!
