Colonel Caversham, once prominent in the British colonial service, has died and left his large collection of artifacts to the local Calleshire museum.Included in those artifacts is a 3,000 year old Egyptain mummy and case, now the responsibility of one Mr. Fixby-Smith, Curator of the Greatorex Museum.What should be a simple moving job, however, is complicated by the fact that the local coroner, Mr. Granville Locombe-Stableford, since no body - no matter how ancient - can moved without his consent. Which is how Detective Chief Inspector C. D. Sloan is dragged away from his more pressing concern with the burgeoning local drug problem and sent to the museum to sort out egos and red tape. When the lid of the mummy case is raised, however, what greets the Corner, Curator, and Inspector is now what they expect.Instead of the remains of the ancient Rodoheptah, they find the body of an unidentified young woman who has been dead only a matter of days.... AUTHORBIO: Catherine Aird is the author of some eighteen crime novels, most of which feature Detective Chief Inspector C. D. Sloan. She holds an honorary M.A. from the University of Kent and was made an M.B.E.Her more recent works are Stiff News (St. Martin`s Press, 1999) and After Effects (St. Martin`s Press, 1996).She lives in Sturry, Kent in England.
