Death Is Now My Neighbor
An Inspector Morse NovelBook - 1997
Colin Dexter confirms his status as one of the finest living crime writers with yet another superb novel. Death Is Now My Neighbor -- a baffling mystery worthy of Agatha Christie 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 -- such as the shooting of a young woman in her North Oxford home. But things 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. Chief Inspector Morse, investigating the murder, follows a trail that leads first to a tabloid journalist, then to the strip clubs of Soho, and finally back to the university. For Morse and his partner, Sergeant Lewis, the question becomes: Is the Mastership of Lonsdale worth killing for?
