book cover

Inspector Morse is on the case at Oxford's luxurious Randolph Hotel. An American tourist dies and a priceless jewel bequeathed to the Ashmolean Museum by her late husband is missing from her hotel room. Quirky and sophisticated, the Jewel That Was Ours is a mystery for readers who love to solve puzzles.


Each month, a member of Brown Bag Mystery Readers nominates a mystery novel and leads a discussion. A librarian is on-hand to facilitate the book chat and to update the group with any news. All Mechanics' Institute members are welcome to join these meetings. Brown Bag Mystery Readers meets the 2nd Monday of every month (excluding holidays).
