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?Read more ›
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!
