Publisher's Summary

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, will allow no body - no matter how ancient - to be 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 coroner, curator, and inspector is not 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....

Another wonderful Catherine Aird mystery

I am working my way through the series and love the recurring characters and locations. Catherine Aird has created a complete world in her books.
