Book Description

The Silent World of Nicholas Quinn is a complex mystery from bestselling author Colin Dexter - the third in his bestselling Inspector Morse series.

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 newly appointed member of the Oxford Examinations Syndicate was deaf, provincial and gifted. Now he is dead . . .

And his murder, in his north Oxford home, proves to be 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 . . .

    4.0 out of 5 stars Inspector Morse Book 3 17 July 2013
    By M. Dowden HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
    Format:Paperback
    It is absolutely baking at the present time as I write this. Not wanting to get into something perhaps a bit too complex or time consuming I just put out my hand and picked up a Morse book to while away the time. This is the third book in the Morse series and it has been quite some time since I last read it. Personally I have always preferred the novels to the tv series, probably because the characters are slightly different. For instance Morse can't really wait to see a certain X rated movie in this book, so he can have a good gander at the flesh on display.

    In this book Morse and Lewis are called in after a murder has taken place to a Nicholas Quinn. Quinn is a relatively new member of staff for the Oxford Examinations Syndicate. This body sets and marks exams for educational bodies abroad. This was first published in 1977 so it is refreshing to read something where mobile phones aren't being used in every other paragraph, and before the creation of GCSEs which countries who would have used such services as the OES have shunned, wanting our old system instead.

    Quinn was profoundly deaf and Morse is drawn to his place of employment for the murder suspect. As the investigation drags on are Morse and Lewis getting all the facts, or are there too many lies and red herrings? This is quite a complex case for Morse, and it has to be admitted he looks like he is wandering around picking up on the wrong things, and coming to the wrong conclusions, especially when another death happens to another member of staff at the Syndicate. Will Morse ever solve this case, especially as he keeps his conclusions so close to his chest?

    5.0 out of 5 stars An interesting author 4 Sept. 2013
    By Shogoon
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    Have only just started to read the Morse books by Colin Dexter. I am difficult to please but have found these to be sheer escapism. Enjoy the wild traits of Morse and the patience of Lewis. Am currently on my seventh Morse novel - in similar manner to my recent reading of Lee Child Jack Reacher books, Colin Dexter and Morse are a great read.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Morse Mystery 13 July 2009
    Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
    Although the third novel in Colin Dexter's Inspector Morse series (following "Last Bus to Woodstock" and "Last Seen Wearing"), this was the first mystery to reveal exactly how brilliant the books about this bad-tempered, beer-swilling and tight-fisted detective were going to be.

    Assisted as always by the ever-willing Lewis, Morse re-enters the world of the town's academics to track down the killer of a member of the Oxford Examinations Syndicate - a member who was newly-appointed and profoundly deaf.

    Perfectly written and beautifully paced, this tale was the first sign that Colin Dexter would soon become the crime writer we now know and love. If you like detective stories, you must read this - it's as simple as that!

    Enjoyed this book but probably not as much as other Inspector Morse books I have read over the years. Having said that I found it hard to put it down until I had finished the book.

    As ever with Colin Dexter it has more twists and turns than a twisty turny thing - with apologies to Richard Curtis/Ben Elton!
