Book Review: The Girl in Black Pajamas by Chris Birdy

About The Book

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 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.

Book Review:

The Girl in Black Pajamas has a lot going on from the get-go. Within the first couple of chapters, you’re thrown into an attempted murder, hacking schemes, a man fearing the possibility of prison, and family issues that are taking a toll. It’s a lot to take in, but once you get yourself settled, you’ll be in for a Soap Opera drama!

Since this is the sequel, the characters do not have much introduction which can confuse anyone reading the series. With that being said, the characters are well put together. Without a need for an extensive introduction, it goes straight into the conflicts everyone must endure, which makes it exciting from the very beginning. Before you read this, I suggest the first book, The Girl in White Pajamas, to understand the characters and avoid confusion.

Overall, this was an exciting book. The story unfolds like a Soap Opera; with multiple conflicts occurring within the same chapter, the author aimed to amp the drama from beginning to end. If you’re a fan of dramas, I would pick up this book!

This tale of murder, revenge and greed takes the reader on a whirlwind trip from Boston to Palm Beach and back. Buckle your seatbelt!
