*A Museum Mystery***BY SHEILA CONNOLLY**

**ABOUT THE BOOK:**

**In the latest Museum Mystery from the New York Times bestselling author of Razing the Dead, a suspicious death has Nell Pratt down in the dumps…**

**Nell Pratt, president of the Pennsylvania Antiquarian Society, has something to smile about thanks to a generous donation from a major Philadelphia developer who’s willing to help update their museum. But renovations have barely begun when a man is struck by a car in front of the building and killed.**

**The victim is a construction worker who found a curious metal object while excavating an old privy in the museum’s basement. Nell thinks the death is somehow connected to the Society, and her suspicions are confirmed when an antiques expert reveals a link between the objects from the cellar and a fellow staff member’s family.**

**Now Nell must unearth a mystery with ties to the past and the present. Because when someone is willing to kill over scrap metal, there’s no telling what they’ll do next…**

**ABOUT THE AUTHOR:**

**Pseudonym for Sarah Atwell.**

**Sheila Connolly is two people these days: herself and Sarah Atwell.**

**Sarah is writing a new mystery series for Berkley Prime Crime. The first book of the Glassblowing Mystery series, Through a Glass, Deadly, was published March 4, 2008.**

**Sheila writes a second mystery series for Berkley Prime Crime. The first book of the Orchard Mystery series, One Bad Apple, appeared in August 2008.**

**Sheila's vital statistics: Married (to my first and only husband), one daughter, three cats. I live in a Victorian home in Massachusetts, not far from Cape Cod. I have more degrees than I know what to do with. Over the course of my life, I've lived in seven states, nineteen towns, and two foreign countries.**

**During my long and varied career, I've been:**

**--an art historian (medieval architecture)**

**--an investment banker in San Francisco and Philadelphia**

**--a non-profit fundraiser**

**--a professional genealogist (I had my own business, Lost Ancestors)**

**--and finally, a mystery writer.**

**I really hope the writer label sticks, because I'm having a great time.**

**I love to travel, I can fix almost anything around an old house, and I'm passionate about genealogy.**
