The Commemoration Night ball at Beaufort College, Oxford, is disturbed first by a strange prank with a professor's mummy, then by a tragic fire that kills the professor-or did it? If he died in the fire, what happened to the mummy? Professors Sargent and Considine take it upon themselves to investigate when the coroner rules accidental death, leaving them with unanswered questions. Dermot Morrah creates a picture-perfect Oxford environment filled with characters that draw the reader into those grounds of academia. This fun, breezy mystery will entertain the amateur detective mystery fan. The Mummy Case Mystery was published in 1933.
