Book beginnings, The Sound and the Furry by Spencer Quinn
"One thing's for sure," the lawyer said, handing Bernie our check, "you earned every cent." Bernie tucked the check in -oh, no-the chest pocket of his Hawaiian shirt, just about his nicest Hawaiian shirt, with the hula dancers and the trombones, but that wasn't the point. The point was we'd had chest pocket problems in the past, more than once. And possibly more than twice, but I wouldn't know, since I don't count past two."
Guess whose thoughts these are? Chet, who is an extra smart dog and side kick to his human private eye partner, Bernie.
These sentences quoted above begin the sixth Bernie and Chet mystery, "The Sound and the Furry." In it they battle a biker gang, shadowy black ops figures, and Igo the ever hungry bayou alligator.

Ooops, this post appeared today April 10, but I meant for it to appear
April 15, on a Friday. And the date of the post says April 15. Anyway, I guess it is no big deal that the dates differ. For those of us in the USA April 15 is the day taxes are due!
