Colin Dexter's brain-teasing whodunit unravels a complex web of deceit and betrayal in the upper echelons of Oxford academia. At the centre of this web is the murder of a young woman, Rachel James, shot from close range through her kitchen window.

Chief Inspector Morse is called in to investigate, but the motive is frustratingly elusive, and alibis are thick on the ground. And then, after a visit to his GP, Morse is faced with a far more personal crisis.

    " Morse's name is revealed finally at the end! He does his usual wonderful job detecting and solving 2 murders, but he is battling diabetes and high blood pressure. He and Lewis develop their relationship more. I just love all of the Morse mysteries; they never let me down. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lisa | 2/1/2014

    " A perfectly find Morse mystery. I think I'm getting tired of the genre though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kate | 1/30/2014

    " My first Inspector Morse book. I think I can add him to the list of reliably good mysteries. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brian | 1/23/2014

    " Lovable. Well written. We learn Morse's first name. What a wonderful way to spend time "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nancy Dryden | 1/22/2014

    " As usual, Colin Dexter has developed a cracking good one. Summoned to a shooting in the suburb of Bloxham Drive, the inspector finds the body of a woman, shot through her kitchen window point blank. And the hunt is on. This book, as is true of all by Colin Dexter, is tightly written with a fascinating, if never ending, plot and the usual clash of class and rank "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bonnie | 1/19/2014

    " Excellent! Who would guess that a Chief Inspector would be an expert on classical music English grammar? Colin Dexter writes of a baffling mystery that is a study of the academic and sexual jelousy behind the facade of Oxford college. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dlhmoore | 1/18/2014

    " I enjoy the Morse mysteries on PBS. This book by Colin Dexter is an early book in his series of the Morse mysteries. I delves into the relationship of Morse and Lewis as well as solving the murder in the story. The relationship is much more interesting. And it shows Morse is a very different way. It fleshes out his personality, now always in a good way. It was very enjoyable in this light. If you liked the PBS series on Morse, I recommend the book. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Emily | 1/13/2014

    " Did not like...the whole mystery book club thought this book was too wordy. The main character... Inspector Morse was very pompous. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sean | 12/19/2013

    " Very entertaining mystery. I always enjoy Morse and Lewis's relationship, and here Lewis finally gets some acknowledgement - after some forceful nudging. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lise Petrauskas | 12/14/2013

    " I really like the narrator, Terrence Hardiman. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cindy | 12/7/2013

    " This was Terrific!! What a great mystery with speed and intrique and I couldn't put it down! This will NOT be my last Dexter book! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah | 11/12/2013

    " Excellent book. My 'first' Morse novel. Had a very interesting mystery and had me close to tears with all the diabetes stuff. But still, has me excited for the rest of the series! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Arwen | 10/31/2013

    " Just re-read this, more slowly this time. A very good, elaborate plot and I love (as always) the interaction between Morse and Lewis. And it's so nice that Morse gets a bit of luck with his lady - though he also gets the first signs of his demise. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Beve | 10/28/2013

    " Love Colin Dexter as a writing and really like Inspector Morse's wit, sense of humor and even his excesses! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 George | 10/25/2013

    " #12 in the Inspector Morse mystery series. Morse and Sergeant Lewis work together to solve two murders involving blackmail and the successorship to the post of a college master. It is a good mystery with a lot of personal side plots involving Morse and the various suspects. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 J. J. Arias | 1/15/2013

    " The plot and was interesting. Enjoyed the quotes at the beginning of each chapter. I also liked the characters and the setting. This is the second Inspector Morse book I've read, and I plan on reading the whole series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Russell | 1/9/2013

    " I enjoyed this book. The style is very distinctive, sometimes deliberately omitting the characters names to cause the reader confusion which gets resolved later. Not altogether sure I like that aspect of it but in general a good book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jim | 5/9/2012

    " My god I thought I was pompous and pretentious!

    That said I read it, but do feel TV series had much to do with that. "
