More About The Endicott Evil by Gregory Harris
 
 
 
Overview
In Victorian London, there exists no greater investigative team than master sleuth Colin Pendragon and his loyal partner, Ethan Pruitt. But it will take all their powers of deduction to determine if a fatal fall was a result of misery or murder . . .
Adelaide Endicott--elderly sister of Lord Thomas Endicott, a senior member of Parliament--has plummeted to her death from the third-floor window of her bedroom at Layton Manor. Did she take her own life--or was she pushed? Although Scotland Yard believes it is a clear case of suicide, Adelaide's sister Eugenia is convinced otherwise . . .
Intrigued by the spinster's suspicions, Pendragon and Pruitt look into the victim's troubled mental state while simultaneously exploring who might have had a motive to push Adelaide to her death. As they begin to uncover a family history involving scandalous secrets, abuse, and trauma, mounting evidence suggests that there is evil lurking behind the closed doors of Layton Manor, and that it is of utmost urgency to expose it before another tragedy occurs.

An intriguing central mystery isnt enough to compensate for the unmemorable plot and characters of Harriss fifth Victorian whodunit (after 2016s The Dalwich Desecration). Imperious Eugenia Endicott consults private investigator Colin Pendragon, a pale imitation of Sherlock Holmes, after she fails to get satisfaction from Scotland Yard in the matter of her octogenarian sister Adelaides death. Adelaide, who was quite infirm, fell from her bedroom window in what the police quickly categorized as a suicide. Eugenia insists that her sibling was murdered, despite the testimony of a witness, the victims footman, that Adelaide unlatched the window before hurling herself to the cobblestones. Colin and his unassuming sidekick, Ethan Pruitt, accept the case, which takes a surprising turn after they learn that Adelaides house is rumored to have been haunted by ghosts. A loose end from 2015s The Connicle Curse will distract readers familiar with the earlier book and confuse newcomers. Agent: Kathy Green, Kathy Green Agency. (Apr.)
