Publisher's Summary

When Professor Julius Arnell breathes his last in the British Museum Reading Room, it looks like death from natural causes. Who, after all, would have cause to murder a retired academic? 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 the two deaths? 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.

fairly tedious

there's a reason why some books have been out of print for 70 years.

despite being set partly in the British museum, near which I live now, and partly in Sheffield where I was raised I found it difficult to engage with this dull grind of a story.

however it was very well read by Peter Wickham who is one of the best narrators around

Pleasant diversion

A light read but enjoyable. Some nice touches of humour and well characterised - don’t expect too much from the plot.
