"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 newly appointed member of the Oxford Examinations Syndicate was deaf, provincial and gifted. Now he is dead... And his murder, in his north Oxford home, proves to be 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..."--Page [4] of cover.

This is a great read, like all Colin Dexter's mysteries!
The book has special appeal for those who are deaf or hard-of-hearing, as the solution to the mystery turns on the man who could lip-read. The author, Colin Dexter, is himself hard-of-hearing and that has influenced his own life and his writing--although his books are widely popular with universal audiences.
