4.0 out of 5 stars A good read with a storyline similar to Daughter of Time, 8 Aug 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: The Wench is Dead (Paperback)
The Wench is Dead is a great summertime read for those English history buffs. I learned about the book recently in a reader's letter to the editor of Smithsonian Mag. Smithsonian published a lively and informative article about the locks and canals of England, particularly the Oxford Canal, which figures significantly in The Wench is Dead. The letter writer suggested the book for further interesting reading. The clues to the mystery are tantalizing as are the foreshadowing of events and character development. I especially enjoyed the teaser clues that may or may not lead to anything, but that pique the reader's interest.

This review is from: The Wench is Dead (Paperback)
This is the best of Dexter and explains why Morse is so fascinating.Using the 1839 Murder of Chritine Collins he adapts the case to Oxford and places it in 1860 and then proceeds to 'solve' the case whilst convalescing .Excellent of its genre.Really good read to take on holiday.

This review is from: The Wench is Dead (Paperback)
As with all the Morse books this one albeit a long time in the past still keeps you wanting to know more because of this I usually find that I have read the whole book in one sitting
