We’re so glad you arrived here at the official web site for the Barking Detective series of humorous mystery novels, which feature a talking Chihuahua, named Pepe, who is adopted by Geri Sullivan, who has just begun working for an eccentric PI.
Our fifth book in the Barking Detective series, The Silence of the Chihuahuas, came out at the end of 2015. In this fifth volume in the series, Geri is dismayed when her previously talkative dog stops talking (but starts blogging). Our Christmas story, A Chihuahua in Every Stocking, is included as a special bonus in the back of the book. Set in the wintery wonderland of Leavenworth, Washington, it follows Geri and Pepe as they try to find a lost Chihuahua on Christmas Eve.
The first novel featuring Pepe, which explains how he helped Geri solve a murder and they become a detective team, is called Dial C for Chihuahua
. It came out in October 2012. The second book in the series, Chihuahua Confidential
, debuted on April 1, 2013 and recounts the adventures of Geri and Pepe in LA performing in a reality TV show called Dancing for Dogs. In the third book in the series, The Big Chihuahua
, Geri and Pepe go undercover to investigate a cult that worships an ancient dog spirit known as Dogawanda. The fourth book, The Chihuahua Always Sniffs Twice
, takes the dynamic duo to Sequim, Washington during the lavender festival where they are protecting a pack of spoiled dogs who have been left a fortune. You can order all of Pepe’s adventures: find the books at your favorite bookstore
