Pettigrew, Francis. Francis Pettigrew was created by “Cyril Hare,” the pseudonym of Alfred Alexander Clark (Inspector Mallett), and appeared in five novels from 1942 to 1958, beginning with Tragedy at Law.

Francis Pettigrew is an aging English lawyer and author of books on criminal justice, who is drawn, more or less against his will, into solving crimes. He begins as a emotionally tired and struggling man, but as the novels progress and he ages, he becomes increasingly happy, and his retirement, with his wife, is a contented one. He occasionally assists Inspector Mallett on cases.
