Berger and Mitry
review 1: Another great entry in the Mitry/Berger series. It's time for the parents to meet. Mitch's folks return from Florida to meet Des and Des' dad, The Deacon, is staying at Des' house while recovering from heart surgery and they plan dinner for everyone. Of course, it's interrupted by a murder. Des is the Resident State Trooper for the Dorset, Connecticut area. The family and hangers-on of Tyrone Grantham are staying in Dorset while he serves an NFL suspension. Da Beast is persona non grata; his wife is pregnant and her younger sister tries to commit suicide. Oh yeah, there's also the guy suing Tyrone for raping his girlfriend. It's a huge mess for Des to figure out. I always enjoy reading this series. Des and Mitch are great together and they work well to solve the crimes Des... more is working on and Mitch always gets involved in, too. Recommended.
review 2: Resident trooper Des Mitry is getting complaints about a new family in rustic Dorset. Da Beast, Tyrone Grantham, is a suspended NFL player whose persona is tough, not genteel. Papparazzi follow him around and clog the winding streets. And, of course, he, like Des, is African-American. When his sister-in-law is found almost dead, she won't tell the police what happened to her. But everyone suspects that Tyrone's recent efforts to reform have not been successful. Des's significant other, movie critic Mitch Berger, puts the pieces together and comes up with a different total. less

I enjoyed this read. It's quite fun, but a little bloody.
I really like this series. Good characters and plot.
Gave it a few chapters but couldn't get into it.
