    Overall

    I've been picking titles from the Aubrey/Machurin series more or less at random from what's available at my local public library and on Audible.com. (Beware --- many of the O'Brian titles on Audible are abridged! What butchery!). This is the best yet.

    The story is varied, with much more charcter development that the previous books that I have read in this series, but no less a supply of nautical detail and seafaring suspense. And there are several suprising turns in the plot. I highly recommend this book, whether or not you have read others in the series.

    Little progress had been made by the Thames Valley Police since the discovery of a corpse in a North Oxford flat. The victim had been killed by a single stab wound to the stomach. The police had no weapon, no suspect, no motive, but within days of taking over the investigation, Chief Inspector Morse and Detective Sergeant Lewis uncover startling new information about the life and death of the victim, Dr. Felix McClure, late of Wolsey College, Oxford.

    Overall

    I had previously met Inspector Morse only on the BBC TV adaptations of Colin Dexter's books. The full book reveals a much more complex character. Don't be put off by the voice of the reader: you will soon acclimate to him, and then realize that he is, in fact, just the right reader for these books.

    Just make sure that you have a l-o-n-g car journey ahead of you, because you won't want to stop until the book is over.
