The Girl in White Pajamas Publisher's Summary

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.
