Detectives Finch and Elias have seen a lot - murders, assaults, rapes, missing persons - but they've never investigated a missing mummy before. Follow the two partners in this novella as they sift through a half dozen different suspects and try to solve the mystery of a stolen mummy from the River City museum.
Part whodunit mystery, part procedural, with more than a little wise-cracking along the way, The Bastard Mummy has a little something for all kinds of mystery readers.
This novella is also included in the short story collection, Dead Even, which contains several other Finch and Elias stories.

A better narrator
I would give it another
There were a few humourous points.
I would consider giving another of Frank Zafiro novels a chance. I found the narrator for this book annoying, sometimes the voice almost faded away and I had to replay, with the volume much louder, in order to catch what was said. Not the best when listening in a vehicle with all the noises of a vehicle, outside noises, etc. Even when I tried listening to it while doing the dishes, no one else in the house, it was hard.
