I went back and read the first of the Francis Pettigrew mysteries. If I had read this one first, I wouldn’t be interested in reading any more. First of all, Pettigrew is barely in it. Certainly not a main character. Second, the murder happens in the last 10% of the book. No exaggeration. And one of the suspects only got introduced a chapter ahead of it. I MIGHT try the third one before I decide about the series, but I’m not in a hurry.
