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.

3.5 Murder in the Museum by John Rowland
A professor of Elizabethan literature dies in the reading room at the British Museum. The second book in my mini-exploration of classic crime fiction set in London, I'm pleased to report that I enjoyed this one significantly more than Murder in Piccadilly. While the cover isn't as aesthetically p...

1.0 Murder in the Museum
I am throwing in the towel @ 30% because my TBR is way too big to waste time on books I simply cannot enjoy. What is even more aggravating than actually having bought this one (rather than borrowed from the library) is that there were elements that should have made this book great: 1. The setti...
