(by Goodreads)

R&B Investigations is under attack. Their employee is shot in the back as he enters the building, and a hacker is trying to compromise their secure network. While the Boston police investigate the shooting, Bogie McGruder needs to find the culprit who is trying to put them out of business.
Bogie and his partner Rose Jones can’t disclose their internet problems to the cops since Bogie is a hacker himself.
Bogie McGruder returns to Boston with his four- year-old daughter Isabella. He joins up with Rose Jones’ uncle Walter who is fresh for Lompoc Prison. Bogie and Walter strengthen their firewalls while they try to determine who is behind the invasion. As the R&B team hones in on the culprit, they uncover several murders and discover a plot to wipe out the financial institutions in Boston.
While Bogie is in Boston, his extended family in Palm Beach becomes enmeshed in a sex scandal that threatens to ruin lives and careers in the Palm Beach Sheriff’s Office.
Feeling like a wishbone about to snap, Bogie tries to handle problems in both cities while Isabella continues her quest for someone to teach her the Five-Point-Palm-Exploding-Heart technique as seen in Kill Bill Volume 2.
This tale of murder, revenge and greed takes the reader on a whirlwind trip from Boston to Palm Beach and back. Buckle your seatbelt!

The child hated dresses but knew she had to concede to her father’s wishes and not bring attention to herself. The dark glasses were her idea. “I think you can take the glasses off now, Pumpkin. We’re in the air.”

“May I use my kindle?”

Bogie nodded as he handed her the kindle. “Are you still reading Sherlock Holmes?”


My Opinion

This book introduces you to Bogie McGruder and his daughter Isabella. His company R&B Investigations faces some incidents and Bogie investigates. I will not tell you more about the stories than shown in the Goodreads plot description. This would spoil the fun of reading this book yourself.

With The Girl in Black Pajamas, Chris Birdy has created a mystery that is thrilling and funny at the same time. The Girl in Black Pajamas comprises believable yet pretty special characters, most of them are likeable – even adorable. I had a great time reading – this is a very entertaining and fun read. I was drawn into the story right away, glad to be an invisible part of everything. This is for you if you like a slightly nerdy and thrilling mystery with humorous streaks.

A book and/or series to read over and over again.

Highly recommended!
