Bogie McGruder returns to Boston after his brother, a cop, is gunned down on the street. Since the Boston police are investigating the death of one of their own, Bogie believes his trip will be a short condolence visit and a chance to meet his secret love child.
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 thinks it's time to establish a relationship with the three year old daughter he's never met. While he considers his options, Bailey gets in touch with him and asks for protection. Someone is trying to kill her.
Bogie doesn't want to get involved in the BPD investigation into his brother's death, but he continues to be drawn into it while trying to discover who is attempting to kill Bailey Hampfield. 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 fast-paced mystery is lies. Everyone seems to be running on lies and half-truths. The only true character is The Girl in White Pajamas.

Yes, only because I commute daily and it's hard to read with all the distractions. It's so much easier listening to someone tell the story and his voice was wonderful!
Yes, because I didn't know who did it and it was cleverly written to keep me in suspense.
There were several scenes that I enjoyed, but I would say the best was the action scene that exposed the killer and had the girl be the hero.
The Girl In White Pajamas is not a bedtime story, you'll be thrilled to the end.
I liked the suspense. It started in the beginning and kept going through the story. Bogie is great. Isabella is a scene stealer.
Bogie was my favorite. He's a tough guy but cares about his family.
Bogie. Jim Tedder nailed him.
No. I enjoyed it at different times. When I went back, I new it would be a good listen and entertaining.
This book was part family drama and part mystery. It is a fast paced read with many twists and turns. If you are looking for a good writer, this is a real find!
I'm the author of 12 novels. My latest thriller is THE MEDIA MURDERS.
This is a good mystery thriller by Chris Birdy. In addition to that, this audio version is excellent. Good plot, characters, and dialogue. I'm looking forward to more of Birdie's novels.
