Product Description

Product Description

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?

It's good to read the proper story as opposed to watching the TV version, however, the TV is a little more pacey.

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

5.0 out of 5 stars An interesting author 4 Sep 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.
