Meet Chet, the wise and loveable canine narrator that works alongside Bernie, a down-on-his luck private investigator. Chet may have flunked out of police school but he is a detective through and through. In this, their first adventure, Chet and Bernie investigate the disappearance of a teenage girl who may or may not have been kidnapped, but who has definitely gotten mixed up with some very unsavory characters. However, as soon as they take the case, the girl shows up unharmed with a story that doesn't add up. Less than a week later, the girl disappears again. Their search takes them into the desert to biker bars and other exotic locals with Chet's highly trained nose leading the way. Both Chet and Bernie bring their own special skills to the hunt, one that puts each of them in peril. But even as the bad guys try to turn the tables, this duo is nothing if not resourceful, and the result is an uncommonly satisfying adventure.
