HEART OF BARKNESS Chet and Bernie Mysteries, Book 9

by | Read by Jim Frangione

Mystery & Suspense • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Narrator Jim Frangione reprises the voice of Chet, the canine sidekick at the Little Detective Agency, in the newest Chet and Bernie whodunit. Frangione's narration is energetic and straightforward, plausibly recounting events from the dog's point of view without excessive cuteness. Bernie is convinced that Lotty Pilgrim, a washed-up country singer, did not wield the knife that killed her lover/manager. Chet and Bernie pursue the truth in a journey through dingy bars, the desert border, and a high-end dude ranch. Frangione gives Lotty only a hint of country twang. Chet tells the story, and recounts Bernie's dialogue; Frangione's voice for Bernie is steadfast and brave because that's exactly how Chet sees his beloved master. Only bacon is better than Bernie. And maybe Slim Jims. N.M.C. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2019]
