    One thought on “The Sweet Golden Parachute”

    1. Such an enjoyable series this is Nothing heavy Nothing diabolical with the exception of the author s tease at the end of this book No blood and guts Nothing but people some who happen to kill other people It was the perfect book to bring me into time off after 42 days straight cat sitting over the holidays DD Phila

    2. Handler s books are always fun and enjoyable, with good characterization and a solid mystery This one is a bit disjointed, I see where he was trying to go with it but the different threads never really come together, the ending is certainly foreshadowed but not organized enough, the coming together feels kind of lame despite a big finale I also wish that there was carry through with characters The whole point of cozies if that you get to know your little town and the people there, and these b [...]

    3. 5 in the Mitry and Berger series, featuring Desiree Mitry, the local Trooper for Dorset, Connecticut and Mitch Berger, film critic for a New York newspaper who now lives in Dorset Rumor has it that Berger and Mitry have split up after she said No when he asked her to marry him, but that s not true They re still very much together, although Des did put off Mitch s proposal for the time being When the local Can Man, a strange hobo like character named Pete who rides around on a bike collecting rec [...]

    4. The Sweet Golden Parachute is the 5th book in the Berger and Mitry series Some mystery books start out slow and at about page 200 a murder is committed Not so, in the Berger and Mitry series In the 5 books that I have read, the crime is committed in the prologue so they start out fast There are always crimes to follow.The books center around Mitch Berger who writes movie reviews for a major New York City newspaper and Des Mitry who is the resident trooper of Dorset Connecticut They are in a rom [...]

    5. A local homeless man is hot by a car and killed while collecting cans by the side of the road Two local troublemakers are just released from prison, and the matriarch of a local founding family, Poochie Vickers, has been driving recklessly and shoplifting It s up to local state trooper Desiree Mitry to sort it all out, with the help of her main squeeze, film critic Mitch Berger.The characters of Mitch and Des are what make this series special Fifth in the series.

    6. I ve not read a good mystery in awhile, and this qualifies as a good mystery Funny and suspensful, this is not the first book in the series, but I wasn t lost for back story Enough is given to understand the past stories I do want to start from the beginning of the series, so this is recommended.

    7. I thought that with this Mitry Berger novel, Handler had begun repeating himslef While the mystery plot was adequate, it didn t have the panache of earlier plots and the lovey dovey romantic sub plot of the main two characters hade begun to become stale

    8. Excellent mystery, I kept thinking I d guessed it and then changing my mind Very well done Good character development and great storyline I have read a few of this series but out of order and it doesn t seem to matter except that you know where Berger and Mitry s relationship is going.

    9. Well, now why did he have to go and do that Messed up a perfectly good book That s what I get for finishing a book during the Ides of March
