Think of yourself as growing one day younger each and every day for the rest of your life. (A statement made by Hangtown Frye in The Hot Pink Farmhouse by David Handler)

 

A car explosion, a squeaky mattress, an undiscovered grave, a secret past, voyeurism, teenage vandalism, and unrequited acceptance weave a thread of malice and murder in The Hot Pink Farmhouse by David Handler.

The famous recluse, Wendell Frye, better known as, Hangtown and his alluring, attractive, sexy daughter Takai joins Berger and Mitry as main characters.  Character names can sometimes give us insight into a town and the people who live within it.  In book 2, is the name Hangtown not only Wendell Frye’s nickname but projects an image of Berger and Mitry becoming the new crime fighting duo hung up in the small town of Dorset.

The Hot Pink Farmhouse themes run parallel: the solution to murder, vandalism by teenagers and a voyeur that gets joy out of spying on his female next door neighbors.

Of course, it takes Berger and his having seen things before they happen and Mitry and her cleverness to come up with solutions.

The Hot Pink Farmhouse also presents a Resident Trooper whose conscience plagues her and hinders her from pulling the trigger, and the man who sees the finality of her hesitation.

It is another crime fiction mystery that teaches that life is not always what it seems.

Another enjoyable read, and it can be purchased at Amazon.de.

  2. Your review describes an interesting and probably fascinating read. I even like the title of the book – but for some reason I’m not too fond of the book cover… If I had only seen this, I probably wouldn’t have picked it… am I weird?

    • No, my dear, you are not weird. I believe everyone has his or her own definition of what is beautiful, and that is how it should be.
      Shalom,

  3. If I hadn’t read John MacDonald (with his odd titles–similar to Handler’s in this series), and hadn’t been encouraged by you, I believe I would have missed this wonderful series. I’m almost done with this 2nd in the series and can’t wait to start the next.

    • Okay, Jacqui, you have planted a seed in me about John Macdonald and so I am going to go on Amazon Germany and see if they have his books also. If he is just as good as Handler, he will drag me in. I just know it. Book 3 – The Bright Silver Star is coming up this Friday.
      Shalom,
      Pat
