by BWW News Desk - Aug 22, 2014

Chris Birdy is proud to announce the release of her novel, 'The Girl in Black Pajamas.' The intriguing book video trailer for 'The Girl in Black Pajamas' was revealed today on DGT Book Promotion news. In addition, Birdy shared her insights on the inspiration for 'The Girl in Black Pajamas.' 'The Girl in Black Pajamas' is the second novel in the Pajama series. The mystery fiction novel takes the reader on adventure through an attempted murder, hacking schemes, a man fearing the possibility of prison, family issues and more. The official book video trailer for 'The Girl in Black Pajamas' can be viewed on YouTube. 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. This tale of murder, revenge and greed takes the reader on a whirlwind trip from Boston to Palm Beach and back. Buckle your seatbelt. Praise for 'The Girl in Black Pajamas': 'This was the most exciting book I've read in a long time. The action starts on page 1 and never stops.'- A reader review About The Author Chris Birdy is the author of the Pajama series. 'The Girl in Black Pajamas' is the second book in the series. Birdy was born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. After graduating from high school, she did a four year stint in the Middle East. When Birdy returned to the States, she settled down in the Boston area and became a true Bostonian by collecting college degrees while raising her family. For more than twenty years, Birdy did investigative work for Boston law firms. Being an avid mystery fan made her either fearless or foolhardy while Working in rough neighborhoods and housing projects. Birdy knows how it feels to have a gun stuck to the back of her head and that was in a courtroom. She knows how it feels to have an angry client walk in her office and point a small gun at her saying, 'I want my money!' That was when the author opened her desk drawer, removed a large gun and drew back the slide while aiming it at him. 'Have a seat!' she said. Birdy states 'There is no substitute for experience.' The author lives outside of Boston with her husband and also resides in Palm Beach where they escape to hide from the snow. 'The Girl in Black Pajamas' is published by Createspace and is available online at Amazon and Barnes and Noble. To learn more about Chris Birdy and The Girl in Black Pajamas, visit (more...)
