Why would a sniper shoot suburban physiotherapist Rachel James as she sips her morning coffee Inspector Morse's hunt for answers kicks off with a. Chief Inspector Morse returns in his twelfth outing than a little worse for the wear His drinking and smoking in particular are now catching up with him and he s beginning to pay the price for all of the years through which he s neglected his physical well being Any number of people including his faithful sergeant Lewis urge him to reform before it s too late but any long time reader of the series understands like Lewis that it isn t going to happenThe demands of another complex and demanding case certainly won t help As the book opens the Master of Lonsdale College in Oxford has announced his retirement Two candidates stand for election to the position Each man wants the job very badly although perhaps neither man wants to be the Master as much as his wife wants to be the First Lady of the collegeOne would expect that the academics would get all of this sorted out within the confines of their own small world but the larger universe intrudes when a young woman is found shot to death early one morning There would appear to be no motive but as Morse begins his investigation of the crime he will discover that the poor woman did have a connection to one of the candidates in the college election There s also a journalist involved and the demands of the investigation will reuire poor Morse to have to work his way through a number of tacky strip clubs in Soho a task he would never think to assign to his poor overworked sergeantLike all of the Morse mysteries this one is densely complicated and only someone as gifted as the Chief Inspector will ever be able to sort it out assuming that he lives long enough to do so This penultimate addition to the series is another very very entertaining read even if a little bittersweet knowing that we re approaching the end of the line It should certainly appeal to any fan of the series

Death is Now My Neighbour

Tabloid journalist winds through the strip clubs of Soho then returns to Oxford where two senior dons and their wives battle for a plum promotion. In this penultimate book in the Inspector Morse series Morse and Lewis investigate the seemingly motiveless murder of a young woman shot through the blind covered window of her kitchen by an intruder who came down the back alley behind the houses Of course it is Morse who realises eventually that it could have been a case of mistaken identity due to the house numberingMorse has a serious health issue which develops in this story but which in his usual curmudgeonly fashion he tries to ignore as best as he can He comes up with a number of theories as to who the murderer is especially when another occurs and with how it relates to a contest at Lonsdale College where two men and their wives are rivals for the position of the next Master I m not sure though that the character of the Master as portrayed although sickening to Morse is as obviously nasty as in the TV adaptation which I still remember some years after last viewing itThere is a foreshadowing of the final novel here and an air of sadness especially over the fate of the young wife of one of the characters But there is some nice interplay with subtle humour between the two detectives and once again Lewis long suffering nature is to the fore Morse finally reveals the secret of his first name in this volume which was a long kept secret at the time All in all a solid and page turning 3 star read
