Death is Now My Neighbour
Author: Colin Dexter
In Death Is Now My Neighbor, Colin Dexter confirms his status as one of the finest living crime writers with a baffling mystery that is also a study of the academic and sexual jealousy behind the facade of an Oxford college.
The peaceful quadrangle of Lonsdale College seems remote from the shocks of the outside world. But things at Lonsdale are not as tranquil as they appear. The Master of the college is retiring, and two senior dons are vying discreetly but furiously to succeed him. There are only two people to whom the coveted appointment means more -- their wives.
Chief Inspector Morse, investigating the murder of a young woman in North Oxford, follows a trail that leads first to a tabloid journalist, then to the strip clubs of Soho. It soon winds back, however, to the university. For Morse and his partner, Sergeant Lewis, the question becomes: Is the Mastership of Lonsdale worth killing for?
Dexter beguiles us with sly wit as he continues to develop his portrayal of Morse -- aging, ailing, but as brilliant and exasperating as ever -- and of his loyal and long-suffering colleague, Lewis. Death Is Now My Neighbor is a rich, complex, and always surprising entertainment.
