The Endicott Evil by Gregory Harris

Did Adelaide jump or was she pushed?  Scotland Yard thinks it's suicide.  Her sister thinks it's murder.  They're both right...

Kensington Books and Net Galley allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published March 28th.

This was a confusing mystery.  The facts Pendragon and Pruitt come up with are mixed.  The gossip is both true and false.  Those questioned don't want to be involved.  As you watch the main characters dance around and visit people from the past, it doesn't seem like they are making much progress.  But, suddenly, Pendragon calls everyone together to talk about what he has found.

The surviving sister keeps trying to shut him up but the Lord wants to hear what he has to say.  It's a surprising ending that leaves hearts shattered.  Even worse, in another case, the lady that Pendragon wants to capture has taken in Pruitt and manages to skip town again.  I expect we will see her again in the next book.  He won't give up!

This is the first I've read in this series but I like the main characters and how they interact to solve cases, so it won't be the last.
