The Dupayne Museum is an eclectic collection of English memorabilia from the period between World War I and World War II The murder room of the title refers to a room displaying relics of murders that occurred during this period The Dupayne Museum is the property of three siblings, who are in the midst of a family row over whether or not to renew the lease on the building that houses the museum When Neville Dupayne is killed in a manner mirroring one of the murders displayed in the Murder Room, Commander Dalgliesh is called in to investigate
Emma Lavenham, a character from Death in Holy Orders, becomes important in this novel as a romance develops between her and Commander Dalgliesh The novel ends with a love letter from Dalgliesh to Lavenham, in which he asks her to marry him She accepts his proposal
In a 2003 book review for The New York Times, Patricia T O'Connor called the book "strikingly similar to James's previous mystery, Death in Holy Orders But this time something new has been added Dalgliesh has a serious love interest", and wrote "This is a very busy mystery, full of traffic jams and ringing cellphones— still manages to preserve the element of old-fashioned, hair-raising suspense" Kirkus Reviews wrote: "Despite a plot less ineluctable than her best Death in Holy Orders, 2001, etc, James creates another teeming world in which murder is only the symptom of a more pervasive mortality"
The BBC adapted the book for a two-part, three-hour TV production released in 2004, starring Martin Shaw as Dalgliesh and Janie Dee as Lavenham The production was released on DVD in the US in October 2005
