Oxford sleuth, Lord David Cholmondeley (“chum-lee”), is a magnet for trouble. The usually quiet Oxford University campus of 1935-1936 becomes a crime scene when Lord Cholmondeley finds a dead body in the library, discovers that rare books have been vandalized, and spies something amiss in the ancient writings gallery of the Oxford museum. Always resourceful, the accident-prone Lord Cholmondeley uses every tool at hand, including a stray cat, to apprehend the villains.
