"Chet has smelled a lot of unusual things in his years as trusted companion and partner to P.I. Bernie Little, but nothing has prepared him for the exotic scents he encounters when an old-fashioned traveling circus comes to town. Bernie scores tickets to this less-than-greatest-show-on-earth because his son Charlie is crazy about elephants. The only problem is that Peanut, the headlining pachyderm of this particular one-ring circus, has gone missing--along with her trainer, Uri DeLeath. Stranger still, no one saw them leave. How does an elephant vanish without a trace?--Cover, p. 2.

Another thrilling read in a mystery series like you would never believe. Looking forward to even more Chet and Bernie adventures.

Loved the series

Chet manages to herd an elephant in this one. Chet and Bernie both manage to make it to the solution without getting too badly beat up. Since it was from Chet's point of view, we missed some of what happened to Bernie, though. It was a fun read.

I will never tire of Chet's monologues. Quinn has captured a dog's thought processes perfectly.

This series is good for cute, light reading. I find myself grinning at Chet's narration and Quinn strikes the right balance of keeping Chet smart and yet still fundamentally a dog who can't quite help himself from being won over by treats and praise or overcome by tangential thoughts of why anyone would *save* bacon or chasing wild geese when humans start talking in metaphors.
