Morse had never ceased to wonder why, with the staggering advances in medical science, all pronouncements concerning times of death seemed so disconcertingly vague.

The murder of a deaf academic in his North Oxford home is the start of a formidably labyrinthine case for Chief Inspector Morse, as he tries to track down the killer through the insular and bitchy world of the Oxford colleges.

    " Third title in the Inspector Morse series set in Oxford England. "

    " Another excellent Colin Dexter yarn. Devoured in two days mostly on the train to and from York for a meeting. My favourite Morse case so far, having read the previous two in the series. Pace excellent, characters superb & story riveting. Brilliant! "

    " Reading Colin Dexter's Inspector Morse Mysteries are a bit like finding your way through a maze. Lots of false starts, dead ends, etc....great fun! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Noria | 8/6/2009

    " I don't read crime stories that often anymore but my suspicions were at least partly right.

    I hadn't read a "Chief Inspector Morse" story before but I like him and his assistant, the crime was really interesting and had some nice twists and turns. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nathan | 7/2/2009

    " Great example of an Inspector Morse novel, but I think The Dead of Jericho would be a better introduction to Morse's character and style. This is quite nice for its exploration of the conceit, Quinn's deafness, but the characters are a bit stiff. Still, enticing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sandy | 3/14/2009

    " This is my first glimpse of Detective Morse, and I kind of like him. He's very much like Hercule Poirot in that he like to amaze his underlings with his detecting powers. And he always gets his bad guy. The English setting is a bit stuffy, but what can I say??? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Austin | 9/26/2008

    " A pleasant, light-weight detective novel, borrowing superficial gravitas from its ancient academic setting. The beer-swilling, crossword-addicted, Oxford-educated, somewhat crass Morse is one of my favorite detective characters. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Michel | 8/29/2008

    " Way too convoluted, in style as well as in plot.
    Also truffled with obscure English expressions (what on earth does "feeling like the proverbial spare part at a prostitute's wedding" mean?)
    Must be one of his first. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rachel | 2/8/2008

    " The one where Nicholas Quinn is deaf, and now dead and the world of the Oxford University examination syndicate is filled with bitchiness and cover ups. "
