"When a famously volatile and suspended NFL superstar linebacker and his entourage decide to spend his season in exile in bucolic Dorset--much to the dismay of his early-to-bed, ultra-white neighbors--Des Mitry is put on the spot. And when his 17-year-old sister-in-law washes up on Mitch Berger's beach, bloodied and barely alive, Des is on the case"--

McMillan Palgrave

This newest mystery featuring Mitch Berger and Connecticut State Trooper Des Mitry presents Des with her first genuine racially charged case in the historic New England village of Dorset, the gem of Connecticut's Gold Coast.


Tyrone "Da Beast" Grantham, the famously volatile NFL superstar linebacker, has just been suspended for "conduct detrimental to the integrity of and public confidence in the league." When Tyrone and his entourage decide to spend his season in exile in bucolic Dorset---much to the dismay of his early-to-bed, ultra-white neighbors---Des is put on the spot. And when Tyrone's eighteen-year-old sister-in-law, Kinitra, washes up on Mitch's beach one morning, bloodied and barely alive, Des is on the case. Especially when it turns out that Kinitra is eight weeks pregnant. Good thing there's nothing else serious going on in our heroes' lives right now. Like, say, Mitch's parents arriving from Florida at long last to meet the new woman of color in their nice Jewish boy's life.


The Blood Red Indian Summer makes a fine and entertaining addition to David Handler's award-winning, critically-acclaimed series.

I do enjoy this series. Mitch and Des are an odd but somehow adorable couple. There's no shortage of drama and crime in the bucolic Connecticut town they call home, and it seems like they sometimes single-handedly solve the crimes. There are so many eccentric characters that the novel/story doesn't seem very real to me. But I am entertained. And sometimes that's enough.

I always love the Berger and Mitry books. Great characterization here. Mitch Berger is a New York film critic, relocated to Dorset, Conn. Desiree Mitry is a state trooper. The two are a great couple and Des' work always turns up some interesting cases. This one involves a football star on leave in order to clean up his life. The sister-in-law is found washed up on a beach, abused and pregnant. Was it the uncontrollable Tyrone Grantham, "Da Beast" or someone else?
