Fatality in F (2019) Alexia Gordon (Gethsemane Brown)

Fatality in FIt’s summer break, and Gethsemane has taken a gig playing and conducting for a local flower and garden show–a show where her friend and co-worker has a chance of taking a prize.

He’d hybridized the rose himself and christened it the ‘Sandra Sechrest’ in honor of the librarian who’d given him a biography of Pythagoras when he was seven and sparked his lifelong love of math.

I love that bit.

But when a competitor ends up dead, Frankie ends up under suspicion.

As with previous books, there was a lot I enjoyed here.

Gethsemane suspected he’d hidden and watched them because he appeared with his keys as soon as the last coffee cup went into the bin near the Athaneum’s entrance. Mr. Greevy despised food and drink in his theater.

I did have a few issues with the story, first and foremost being, why would Gethsemane have encouraged Frankie to hide from the police initially? That really wouldn’t change the suspect–just make him less of a suspect–just make the police more suspicious.

“The Cork garda has people who specialize in this kind of thing, luring online predators and such, but there’s no time to bring them in.”

Uh… why not?

To be clear, I did actually enjoy the story, though I believe Gethsemane is one of those friend it might be dangerous to know.
