Bones of Contention

(1954)
(The second book in the Superintendent Burnivel series)
A novel by

 
 
"It isn't unusual for the museum at the Royal College of Paediatricians to receive a skeleton. But usually they order them first--this one is delivered in a steamer trunk, and nobody knows why, not even the museum's head, Mr. Murivance. When he dies suddenly shortly afterward, no one is too surprised: he was elderly and in failing health. And when the editor of the group's journal Miles Latimer has an unfortunate fall, well--these things happen. Fortunately, Miles has some loyal friends who worry about him."
