Morse is the greatest detective,
This review is from: The Dead of Jericho (Inspector Morse) (Paperback)
This is a fine crime novel from Colin Dexter. A woman romantically involved with Morse is found hanged in her home in Jericho, Oxford. Morse is determined to crack the case and Dexter weaves a typically convoluted plot. This novel is early Morse, but is still worth reading. The relationship between Morse and Lewis is getting there but is not as well established as in the later novels. None the less this is a very good novel with plenty of twists and turns. DCI Morse is a great character and Lewis, as ever, his dependable Watson. I enjoyed this book and I have re-read it recently. Dexter is able to give the reader enough clues about the killer's identity without giving too much of the game away. This novel was also brilliantly dramatized as the first ever Inspector Morse episode on television in 1987.
Very enjoyable whodunit.
