I guarantee that I have the best sense of smell of any private detective. I am also the fastest PI on Earth. My name is Chet. I’m a dog and, incidentally, the first-person narrator Of Mutts and Men.
My partner is Bernie. He and I solve crimes for a living. Business may be slow, but it keeps me in Slim Jims.
This case is a dead guy named Wendell, who we just met. He invited us to talk to him about something strange with the water. It sounded like that movie with Jack Nickolson and Faye Dunaway.
But we always are hurting for cash so we went to the office trailer on Wendell’s job site. We found him there, dead with his throat slit ear-to-ear. The stupid copper, Deputy Beasley, thinks it’s a suicide even though the weapon is missing from the scene. Guess Bernie and I better find Wendell’s murderer.
Even though Bernie has done comedy at LaffRiot, I think Chet is the one with a Netflix special in his future. If he can only break down the language barrier. Chet is hilarious—like laugh-out-loud funny! If you like dogs, humor and a mystery, you should try Of Mutts and Men. You won’t be sorry. 4 stars!
