The Girl in Red Pajamas (Pajama, #3) by Chris Birdy


The author sent me a copy (mobi format) in exchange for an honest review (member of Rosie’s Book Review Team).

My rating:  4.8  of  5  stars

(by Goodreads)

The Girl in Red Pajamas begins when two lesbians have a smack down in a Boston restaurant. After one is found dead stuffed in the back of the other’s SUV, their families line up and point fingers. Tensions mount as relatives question religious beliefs, and the police gather evidence to build a case against the survivor. Bogie McGruder becomes deeply involved in the investigation because one woman is his sister and the other, his old girlfriend. This third book in the Pajamas Trilogy brings the series to a glorious end.


Genre(s):  Mystery

Series:  Pajama Trilogy, #3

After Carlos left, Bogie asked Wu to sit down. “First of all, I wish you had told me that Isabella was asking you to show her pressure point techniques.”

The small man nodded. “I apologize for that. I was deciding if I should betray her confidence. I knew she was rationalizing her behavior after she promised you she wouldn’t attempt to learn the Five-Point-Palm-Exploding-Heart technique. And then she had that unfortunate accident.”


My Opinion

This book leads the readers back to Bogie McGruder. This time, he has to deal with family issues like relationships, beliefs and misunderstood children. I will not tell you more about the story than shown in the Goodreads plot description. This would spoil the fun of reading this book yourself.

With The Girl in Red Pajamas, Chris Birdy has once again created a mystery that is thrilling and funny at the same time. The Girl in Red 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, food for thought (e.g. about fanaticism).

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

Highly recommended!
