Pettengill, Inspector. Inspector Pettengill was created by Anne Rowe (Inspector Barry) and appeared in Curiosity Killed a Cat (1941), The Little Dog Barked (1942) and The Painted Monster (1945).

Inspector Josiah Pettengill is the local policeman for Cliffport, Maine. Pettengill is almost six feet tall, “with a sturdy, well-covered frame that somehow gave him a look of reliability, to which his round, jovial face–no older or younger looking than his forty-one years–added a cheery note in the fine laughing wrinkles around his clever, friendly eyes, and a mouth inclined to perk up at the corners.”
