To Fetch a Thief, The Dog Who Knew Too Much, and A Fistful of Collars

An eBook collection featuring the third and fourth novels in the irresistible New York Times bestselling mystery series featuring P.I. Bernie Little and his narrating sidekick Chet—“a canine Sam Spade full of joie de vivre” (Stephen King).

Chet has smelled a lot of unusual things in his years as trusted companion and partner to Bernie, but nothing has prepared him for all the exotic scents he encounters in To Fetch a Thief, when an old-fashioned one-ring traveling circus comes to town. After Peanut, the headlining elephant, and her trainer go missing, the Little Detective Agency is hired to find out what has become of the duo. Soon Chet and Bernie are led south of the border in hot pursuit of some dangerously cool criminals and a decidedly uncooperative pachyderm.

In The Dog Who Knew Too Much, Chet and Bernie take on the case of a boy who has vanished from a wilderness camp. The kid’s mother thinks her ex-husband snatched their son, but Chet’s always reliable nose leads Bernie in a new and dangerous direction. Meanwhile, matters at home get complicated when a stray puppy that looks suspiciously like Chet shows up. Affairs of the heart collide with a job that’s never been tougher, requiring our intrepid sleuths to trust each other even when circumstances—and a rival P.I.—conspire to keep them far apart.

I smell trouble,” Bernie said.

Better stop right there. Not that I doubt Bernie. The truth is, I believe everything he says. And he has a nice big nose for a human. But what’s that saying? Not much.

It’s a fact that trouble has a smell—human trouble especially, sour and penetrating—but Bernie had never smelled trouble before, or if so he hadn’t mentioned it, and Bernie mentioned all kinds of things to me. We’re partners in the Little Detective Agency, me and Bernie, Bernie’s last name being Little. I’m Chet, pure and simple.

I took a quick sniff,... see more
