Catch the Lie

JAN: We know Peter Abrahams can pull off a fib. First, he convinced us he was Spencer Quinn, the author of the bestselling new mystery, Dog Gone It. And as Spencer Quinn, he managed to thoroughly convince us he was inside the canine mind, as Chet, the K-9 Academy dropout.

But can he fool us with his personal lies??Only one way to find out? Make him take the Jungle Red Quiz!

JR:Miss Marple or Hercule Poirot?

PA: Neither.

JR: Sex or violence?

PA:The former.

JR:Pizza or chocolate?

PA:The former again.

JR: Daniel Craig or Pierce Brosnan? Who makes the better Bond?

PA: Sean Connery

JR: Katherine Hepburn or Audrey Hepburn?

PA: They both drive me crazy.

JR: First person or Third Person?

PA: First..JR:Prologue or no prologue?

PA: Nope.

JR: Facebook or MySpace or Twitter?

PA: Facebook

JR: Your favorite non-mystery book?

PA: Crime and Punishment (certainly a crime novel, but not a mystery).

JR: Making dinner or making reservations?

PA: Making dinner.And now, of course, for your readers: The Jungle Red Quiz:Tell us four things about you that no one knows. Only three can be true. We'll guess

1. I drowned once.

2. I took a few points off Jimmy Connors.

3. I never cheated on a test or exam.

4. I had a phone conversation with a Manson family member.

Make your best guess, we'll get the truth out of Peter by the end of the day.

And if you want to know more about the storytelling Chet, himself, can come up with, check out


  1. Peter, those are all hard to believe. I'm going with taking points off Jimmy Connors (one of my former idols, by the way...unless he was playing Stefan Edberg. Remember him?)

  2. Taking points off Jimmy Connors? Hmmm. Maybe it wasn't in tennis..were you playing poker? Or Scrabble?

  3. So easy to believe Peter never cheated on a test or an exam.

    And by drowned, I"m guessing he means drowned and revived. Or almost drowned.

    And Manson family members are a dime a dozen, aren't they?

  4. This was way too easy I guess, but I'm pretty offended. Just looking at me and you know I couldn't even win one lousy point from Connors, even on a lucky mis-hit or something? Is that how it is?

    Thanks for having me on the site. I really enjoyed it and hope to see all of you soon.

  5. Wow. I want to hear about the phone conversation...which one, and how come?? Because I'm SURE that's true.

    Taking points of Jimmy Connor? Hmm. Sounds pretty fishy to me.
