A Museum Mystery by Joyce Richardson

Nude Descending a Staircase

About the Book

The Victorian buildings loom forbidding. Their long corridors are strange, to be sure. But why are bodies piling up in this innocent university art museum/asylum?

The tortured corridors of the museum are nothing compared to the strange art and artists who inhabit this world.

Two blundering women become wrapped up in a series of murders occurring in a local art museum, formerly a hospital for the mentally ill.
