The Riverside Villas Murder Paperback
Part of the Penguin Modern Classics series
A mummy is stolen from a small town museum along with some Roman coins and a soaking wet man collapses in fourteen year old Peter Furneaux's living room bleeding from the head.
What was a suspected student prank is followed by murder.
At first it is impossible to see the connection, but the eccentric Colonel Manton does.
With Peter's help the Colonel unravels a mystery that strikes fear into the heart of a genteel suburban neighbourhood and gives Peter rather more excitement than he bargained for at the tennis club social.
This meticulously paced thriller shows Amis at his most subtle and daring.
