Mehso-so

This is the introduction to Perkins and Tate, and the competent, yet unlucky, PR Man, Doug Perkins.

I highly enjoyed Murder at the Cat Show (foreshadowed at the end of this one), but the Cover-Up Story is just too depressing. The PR “Client” is a piece of work, and his horribleness goes on and on. At times it is utterly cringeworthy. I didn‘t enjoy the mystery, as much as look forward to the end of the story.
