Publisher's Summary

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 murder of a deaf academic in his North Oxford home is 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.

Critic Reviews

"[Morse is] the most prickly, conceited, and genuinely brilliant detective since Hercule Poirot." (The New York Times Book Review)
"[Dexter] is a magician with character, story construction, and the English language....Colin Dexter and Morse are treasures of the genre." (Mystery News)
"It is a delight to watch this brilliant, quirky man deduce." (Minneapolis Star & Tribune)
