A Fistful of Collars is a man’s best friend of a read!
Bernie and Chet are a team. Bernie is a private investigator. Lately, Bernie has been feeling the pinch in his financial situation. If it was not for this, he probably would have argued more with the Mayor about his latest job. The mayor wants to hire Bernie to baby sit a movie star. The town is the setting for a movie and Thad Perry is the star. Bernie is no one’s baby sitter but the money is good. It seems that Bernie will have to earn his money when someone tries to go after Thad.
A Fistful of Collars is book five of the Chet and Bernie mystery books. I have been eyeing this series for a while but just never found a chance to check any of the books out until now. This is why it is a good thing that this book can be read as a stand alone novel.
I thought this was a fun, charming read. Nothing to serious about it. This is what I liked the most. The characters were goofy but entertaining. I loved Chet. He is a great narrator. His input was valuable, funny, and observant like a dog. Bernie is lucky that the case he has goes so easy for him. At times I wonder about him. He seems like a dim wit but a likable dim wit. I do plan to go back and check out the rest of the prior novels. A Fistful of Collars is a man’s best friend of a read!
