Book finished: Little Knell

I just finished #18 Little Knell by Catherine Aird. I rate it a 5.
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 three-thousand-year-old Egyptian mummy and case, now the responsibility of one Mr. Fixby-Smith, Curator of the Greatorex Museum. What should have been a simple moving job, however, is complicated by the local coroner, Mr. Granville Locombe-Stableford, since no body - no matter how ancient - can 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 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...

Currently reading #1 Monkeewrench by P. J. Tracey and still reading the Harry Potter book.
