Publisher's Summary

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.

Not one of my favourites

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

A better narrator

Would you ever listen to anything by Frank Zafiro again?

I would give it another

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of William E. Fortier?

Not sure.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

There were a few humourous points.

Any additional comments?

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.
