Pentecost Alley is one of Ms. Perry's better mysteries, but not necessarily one of her best books. It is longer than previous books, and it contains unnecessary filler. Emily is more prominent, and that is not a good thing. She is insipid and her actions are unconscionable and can be considered criminal. It is surprising that Pitt and even Charlotte are so forgiving.
One observation on all of the Pitt books: they all finish in a rush solving the crime, but there is no opportunity for the main characters to discuss the conclusion and what happened. This would have been particularly interesting in this episode since many of the characters were wrongand misguided.
