The Hot Pink Farmhouse by David Handler, Book 2, in the Berger and Mitry series
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.
