To make matters worse, Bernie's on-again, off-again girlfriend, reporter Susie Sanchez, disappears too. When Chet is separated from Bernie, he's on his own to put the pieces together, find his way home, and save the day. Spencer Quinn's brilliantly original ("Richmond Times-Dispatch") and masterful ("Los Angeles Times") series combines genuine suspense and intrigue with humor and insight for a tail-wagging good time readers won t soon forget.
