Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Spencer Quinn speaks two languages—suspense and dog—fluently.” Stephen King, #1 New York Times bestselling author, praise for the series
“The suspense builds nicely, and the Louisiana bayou setting and lively cast of characters (mostly white and Cajun) give the story home and heart…Fans will enjoy the brouhaha in the bayou and hope more mysteries are on the way for their favorite sleuths." Kirkus Reviews
“Since the story is told from Bowser’s perspective, it often has a funny and silly tone that is amusing and entertaining, but the story line can turn dark at times with Birdie’s discovery of a dead body, murder plots, and potential kidnappings. As the protagonist, Birdie is a strong, independent, and smart character; Bowser provides comic relief…This page-turner will leave readers looking forward to more mysteries with their favorite canine and his favorite human, amateur detective.” Children’s Literature
“Narrator James Frangione is the best voice for the job…Though generally light in tone, Frangione adds a sinister undertone when the duo discover a body in the swamp. Bowser’s delightful canine insights will surely garner this series new fans.” AudioFile
