Spencer Quinn's A Farewell to Arfs is a return to the adventurous New York Times and USA Today bestselling series that Stephen King calls "without a doubt the most original mystery series currently available."

Chet the dog, "the most lovable narrator in all of crime fiction" (Boston Globe) and his human partner PI Bernie Little are back again, and this time they're entangled in a web of crime unlike anything they've ever seen before.

Their next door neighbor, Mr. Parsons, thought he was doing the right thing by loaning his ne'er do well son, Billy, some money to help get himself settled. But days later, Mr. Parsons has discovered that his entire life savings is gone. Valley PD is certain this is an impersonation scam, but Bernie isn't so sure.

With Mrs. Parsons in the hospital and Billy nowhere to be found, it's up to Chet and Bernie to track Billy down and get to the bottom of things -- before it's too late.

Praise For…

Praise for the Chet and Bernie series:
“I have been a Chet and Bernie fan from the start. Chet is a wonderful narrator—top dog, you could say—but he never descends to cuteness, and Bernie is as tough a PI as Spade or Marlowe, a man as quick with his .38 as he is with a Slim Jim for his sidekick. I’m already jonesing for the next one.” —Stephen King

"A tidy mystery, a good dollop of action, and a rumination on life after high school—who could ask for more? Chet, with his innate doggie wisdom, is sure to inspire loyal fans and seduce new readers." —Publishers Weekly on Bark to the Future

"Chet's narration provides humor and insight, and Bernie's search into his own past provides meditations on growing up and growing apart." —Library Journal on Bark to the Future

“Delightful…dog lovers won’t want to miss this one.” —Publishers Weekly on Heart of Barkness

“Would that we all were as infallible in our dogs’ eyes as Bernie is in Chet’s.” —Susan Wilson, New York Times bestselling author of The Dog I Loved

“Cleverly plotted…Chet is a source of wisdom and innate doggie joie de vivre, making this a real pleasure for anyone who has ever looked into a dog’s eyes and asked: who’s a good boy?” —Publishers Weekly
