Murder in the Museum

When Professor Julius Arnell breathes his last in the hushed atmosphere of the British Museum Reading Room, it looks like death from natural causes. Who, after all, would have cause to murder a retired academic whose life was devoted to Elizabethan literature? Inspector Shelley s suspicions are aroused when he finds a packet of poisoned sugared almonds in the dead man s pocket; and a motive becomes clearer when he discovers Arnell s connection to a Texan oil millionaire. Soon another man plunges hundreds of feet into a reservoir on a Yorkshire moor. What can be the connection between two deaths so different, and so widely separated? The mild-mannered museum visitor Henry Fairhurst adds his detective talents to Inspector Shelley s own, and together they set about solving one of the most baffling cases Shelley has ever encountered."
Product Details


Well, it looks like I started with a cracker! Murder in the Museum is a fast-paced, thrill ride from start to finish and, although I did manage to guess the murderer well before the big reveal, I really found it hard to put this book down for a second!...It truly is a high-octane book, one which wouldn't be too far fetched in modern literature. Given that this book was written in the 1930's shows an endurance to this mystery that many modern books lack.--Matthew Barnes "Carpe Libris " This is a classic whodunit with great characters and a enjoyable sleuth in a time gone by that is delightfully described for the reader.--Lori Reed "NetGalley "
