Paige's Review

Chris Birdy is at it again! If you loved "The Girl in White Pajamas," then you will enjoy it's sequel "The Girl in Black Pajamas"

"The Girl in White Pajamas" was an astounding book full of mystery and intrigue. "The Girl in Black Pajamas" is even more exciting!

Isabella is back, the little red haired girl in her pajama like Karate outfit is back and better than ever.

Bogie McGruder's life in his Floridian paradise is perfect, that is until yet another shooting brings him back home to Boston. This time Tommie, one of the employees of R&B investigation was shot four times while trying to enter the front door of the business.

Bogie and Isabella leave behind their family and friends in Florida to go back to Boston to help Rose, the R in R&B Investigation, figure out just what is happening.

An internet mastermind threatens to ruin everything Bogie and Rose have built. Will the mastermind get the best of them, and succeed in murdering, taking over, and ruining the lives of those we have learned to love?

This book is beautifully written and is a wonderful read for anyone who enjoys a good murder mystery. Will the girl in black pajamas save the day again? Or will the mastermind get the upper hand?

If you enjoy fast pace, edge of your seat, heart pounding action, then you will love "The Girl in Black Pajamas" (!!!) We learned from the Q&A in my review of "The Girl in White Pajamas" that Chris Birdy has some first hand experience in this area, and uses it to write these wonderful books. I can not wait to see what else she has for us. I have a feeling that we have not heard the last of the red headed four year old.

Read about our old friends Daryl, Rose, Tommie, and Jesus, and meet new ones like Walter, Hankster, and Riley Rose. Follow Amanda in her new adventure of being a young wife and mother, and of course see Bogie happier than he has ever been with his new wife Bailey.

You must read "The Girl in White Pajamas" before you read "The Girl in Black Pajamas" in order to know who the story is talking about, and where they have come from as well as how their lives have changed for the better. I promise you, that you will love both of these books, and be hoping for a sequel as quick as possible, such as I do.

I hope you enjoy "The Girl in Black Pajamas."

Because we are a family friendly site, I must mention that "The Girl in Black Pajamas" does have SOME mature content, graphically told scenes, and profanity. This however does not change my views and opinions of Chris Birdy and her wonderful book. I would tell anyone who loves this genre to read it at you own discretion.

The Girl in White Pajamas

When Officer Bud the PR face of the Boston Police Department is gunned down, his brother, Bogie McGruder, returns from Palm Beach for the funeral. Since the BPD is investigating the death of one of their own, Bogie believes his trip to Boston will be a short condolence visit and a chance to meet his secret love child.

But interacting with a family fueled by alcohol and mired in scandals, Bogie is reminded why he does investigations for his Boston based company from a computer in Florida. Although Bogie wants to contact his ex-lover, Bailey Hampfield, he’s reluctant to do so since Bailey dumped him four years earlier. Knowing that Bailey had his child after she cut him loose, Bogie ponders how he can establish a relationship with the three year old daughter he’s never met. While he thinks about it, Bailey gets in touch with him and asks for protection. Someone is trying to kill her.

By the time Bogie meets Isabella, it’s apparent that he still loves the mother and adores the child. Bogie tells himself that he’s not interested in the BPD investigation into Bud’s death, but he continues to be drawn into it while trying to discover who is attempting to kill Bailey. The investigations seem to parallel each other, then intersect and become intertwined. As the story develops, Isabella, a precocious child obsessed with martial arts, slowly becomes the focus.

The underlying theme of this mystery is lies. Everyone seems to be running on lies and half truths. The only pure and true character is The Girl in White Pajamas.

About the Author

Chris Birdy was born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. After graduating from high school, she did a four year stint in the Middle East. When she returned to the States, Chris settled down in the Boston area and became a true Bostonian by collecting college degrees while raising a family.

For more than twenty years, Chris has been a member of the legal community performing investigative work for Boston law firms conducting business in rough housing projects and crack house neighborhoods.  Several years ago, while sitting in a courtroom with a client, Chris watched as a police officer was lambasted by an attorney. The attorney was defending a young woman who crashed her car into two other vehicles before she passed out drunk behind the wheel. The occupants of the other cars were seriously hurt and the cop, a former EMT, tried to assist the injured while waiting for ambulances to arrive. The attorney questioned the cop's every move, shredded his testimony and made him seem inept.
Embarrassed, the cop returned to his seat beside me and muttered, "Everybody lies. The judges lie, the lawyers lie, the witnesses lie.."  Chris wanted to tell him not to worry that in about five years he'd be just as good a liar as they were.
The seeds for The Girl in White Pajamas were planted in that courtroom.

Chris lives outside of Boston and in Palm Beach, Florida with her husband.
