Publisher's Summary

Holiday time in the Valley, and in the holiday spirit - despite the dismal shape of the finances at the Little Detective Agency - Bernie refers a potential client to Victor Klovsky, a fellow private eye. It’s also true that the case - promising lots of online research but little action - doesn’t appeal to Bernie, while it seems perfect for Victor, who is not cut out for rough stuff. But Victor disappears in a rough-stuff way, and when he doesn’t show up at his mom’s to light the Hanukkah candles, she hires Chet and Bernie to find him. 

They soon discover that Victor’s client has also vanished. The trail leads to the ruins of a mission called Nuestra Señora de los Saguaros, dating back to the earliest Spanish explorers. Some very dangerous people are interested in the old mission. Does some dusty archive hold the secret of a previously unknown art treasure, possibly buried for centuries? What does the Flight into Egypt - when Mary, Joseph, and the baby Jesus fled Herod - have to do with saguaros, the Sonoran desert cactus? No one is better than Chet at nosing out buried secrets, but before he can, he and Bernie are forced to take flight themselves, chased through a Christmas Eve blizzard by a murderous foe who loves art all too much.

Never disappoints

Spencer Quinn has such a talent for mixing complex situations with simple logic. I love hearing the stories from Chet’s point of view. He constantly reminds us what is important in life (loved ones, treats, having fun, security, and a good place to nap). All of Chet and Bernie’s cases are interesting, entertaining and a great opportunity to relax and live in the moment. In have read all of the series and look forward to the next book! If only someone could help them with the financial part of their business plan….

tremendous reader and writer combo

I've come to love these books by Spencer Quinn so much that I pre-order them and save them for a special occasion once they arrive. They're so beautifully read by Jim frangione, and they wrap up all too soon, leaving me eager for the next one.

Quinn & Frangione never disappoint!

The story was a little more complicated than usual and it took a bit to remember who everyone was, but the ending was very exciting, and Chet & Bernie as lovable as ever!

Wooferful!

I just absolutely Love ❤️ these stories. The narration is perfection and the characters adorable. The only problem is I have to wait until another tale comes about. Meanwhile I’ll play an old one again and enjoy it just as much as the first time. More soon please.

Always a smile

It brings the Christmas spirit with smiles and heart. The narrator is the joy he has been throughout the series.

It came upon a midnight clear

It’s almost Christmas time & Bernie is offered what appears to be an easy job. Wanting to help out a detective friend, he recommends him for that job. It isn’t long before Bernie regrets that decision b/c his friend turns up missing & could be dead. Of course Bernie & his best friend Chet the dog aren’t going to stop looking into what happened to Bernie’s friend & why until the case is solved. I never get tired of the Chet & Bernie mysteries & can’t wait for the next installment!

LOVED IT

The narration is very good. I can imagine Chet Verbalizing in his mind. I really enjoy stories about animals especially when They are as interesting as the little detective agency.
