When a mysterious case of illegal cactus smuggling comes to their attention, Chet and his human P.I. companion, Bernie Little, find themselves in a prickly situation in this eighth book in the New York Times bestselling mystery series. In the latest entry in the immensely popular Chet and Bernie mystery series, Private Investigator Bernie Little and his canine companion Chet return home to encounter some alarming developments. First off, Bernie's wall safe-normally hidden behind the waterfall picture in the office-is gone, and with it Bernie's grandfather's watch, their most valuable possession. And next door, old Mr. Parsons is under investigation for being in possession of a saguaro cactus illegally transplanted from the desert. Bernie and Chet go deep into the desert to investigate. Is it possible that such a lovely old couple have a terrible secret in their past? Chet and Bernie discover bad things going on in the wilderness, far worse that cactus smuggling, and all connected to a strange but innocent-seeming desert festival called Arrow Bright. They unearth leads that take them back to a long-ago kidnapping that may not have been a kidnapping and threaten a ruthless and charismatic criminal with a cult following, a criminal who sees at once what Chet and Bernie mean to each other and knows how to exploit it. Every bit as 'insightful' (Booklist), 'humorous' (Library Journal), and 'deliciously addictive' (Publishers Weekly, starred review) as Quinn's previous books, Scents and Sensibility is a drool-worthy mystery that will have readers everywhere begging for more.

I fell across this book as an Audiobooks freebie without knowing it was part of a series. Chet the huge mixed breed of indeterminate origins makes a lovable, often goofy, irrepressibly doggy narrator and seeing the world through his brain, sometimes hilariously blank, brings a welcome spin on the hard-boiled detective genre. Jim Frangione, the audio narrator, is completely believable as Chet - I loved his rendition! I am now working on the other books in the series. Thank you for this happy romp of a discovery.

I love this series. The narrator, Jim Frangione, does an excellent job. I laugh out loud listening to Chet the dog’s view of his world.

I liked the flow and the coming together of the characters at the end
