The Jewel That Was Ours

"Superbly clue-laden...A complex and satisfying puzzle." THE BOSTON SUNDAY GLOBE The case seems so simple, Inspector Morse deemed it beneath his notice. A wealthy, elderly American tourist has a heart attack in her room at Oxford's luxurious Randolph Hotel. Missing from the scene is the lady's handbag, which contained the Wolvercote Tongue, a priceless jewel that her late husband had bequeathed to the Ashmolean Museum just across the street. Morse proceeds to spend a great deal of time thinking--and drinking--in the hotel's bar, certain the solution is close at hand--until conflicting stories, suspicious doings, and a real murder convince him otherwise.... "It is a delight to watch this brilliant, quirky man [Morse] deduce." MINNEAPOLIS STAR & TRIBUNE

 

The Mystery Book Group meets at 2:00 PM on the fourth Wednesday of every month. We read a wide variety of titles, from the classics to historical mysteries to contemporary thrillers. Currently the group is fashioned on our hybrid model – members can attend in person at the main branch of the library or attend via zoom. We always enjoy welcoming new readers with different perspectives to the group. For more information, please contact Jill Kenny at jkenny@chelmsfordlibrary.org
