Book Description
When Chet and Bernie happen upon a prison work crew that includes Frenchie
Boutette, an old criminal pal they sent up the river, getting a new case is the
last thing they expect. But Frenchie, who comes from an old Louisiana family
full of black sheep, needs help finding his one law-abiding relative, his
brother Ralph, a reclusive inventor who has gone missing with his houseboat.
Though he's tempted to take another job (with a big payday) in Alaska, Bernie
decides to set course for the bayous of Louisiana, a trip that will introduce
Chet to a world of sights, smells, and tastes that are like nothing he's ever
encountered. Out in bayou country, Chet and Bernie meet the no-good Boutette
family and their ancient enemies, the maybe-even-worse Robideaus, and at first
it seems as if Ralph's disappearance is connected to a dispute over a load of
stolen shrimp. But when Chet uncovers a buried clue, the investigation heads in
a dangerous new direction involving the oil business and an impending
environmental catastrophe. The more Chet and Bernie discover about Ralph, the
more treacherous the job becomes, and soon they're fighting not only Big Oil,
but also shadowy black ops figures, a violent biker gang from back home, and
Iko- a legendary bayou gator with a seemingly insatiable appetite. Meanwhile,
deep under the Gulf, the pressure just keeps building.

With top-notch suspense, humor, and genuine insight into the ways our canine
companions think and behave-all set against a rollicking new Louisiana
backdrop. The Sound and the Furry will make you howl in delight.
