Product description


''(Audiobook narrator) Frederick Davidson captures perfectly the inspector's soul, as well as delivering excellent portrayals of the jaunty Sergeant Lewis, the vicious Ted Brooks, and a host of suspects. Davidson, a favorite reader at Blackstone, has found his métier in the dramatization of Dexter's contemplative detective stories. This one is excellent and is ideal on audio.'' --AudioFile

''Audacious and amusing . . . May be the best book yet in this deservedly celebrated series.'' --Wall Street Journal

''Very cleverly constructed...Dexter writes with an urbanity and range of reference that is all his own.'' --Los Angeles Times

''Dexter is fiendishly adept at the literary aside . . . He is a masterful crime writer whom few others match.'' --Publishers Weekly (starred review)

''Intelligent and compelling . . . Morse is an intriguingly complex character, a mixture of gruffness, sentimentality, and intuitive brilliance, while his gentle, steadfast companion, Lewis, is a perfect foil for Morse's prickliness . . . Doubtless his most engrossing adventure to date.'' --Booklist

''Inimitably cantankerous Chief Inspector Morse - in his eleventh stint - takes over a case that seems utterly straightforward . . . Dexter offers a painfully focused inquisition on . . . three remarkable women, showing again through his versatility and concentration why the death of Julian Symons has left him the foremost exponent of the old-fashioned (but new-minted) British detective story.'' --Kirkus Reviews

''(Audiobook narrator) Davidson captures Morse's personality and horse voice perfectly. He reads Dexter's sarcastic, witty prose with just the right sneering tone and easily differentiates all characters, even in fast paced, complex conversations . . . I had already read this and found listening much more entertaining; I was amazed at how much I'd missed in reading.'' --Kliatt


'This is Colin Dexter at his most excitingly devious.' (The Daily Telegraph)
