Joking aside, Colin Dexter's books could be termed as cerebral whodunits. The twists and turns of the plot are always paramount, convoluted and complex. As each novel in the series was published, Dexter cleverly kept his readers guessing about Morse. For the publication of Death is now my Neighbour, however, Dexter made the gift of a publicity hook for his publishers, with the fact he was going to reveal Morse's Christian name for the first time. This caused a media frenzy, even being announced on ITV's "News at Ten"! The book shot to the top of the bestseller list, selling over 120,000 in the first four weeks in the UK alone.

Death Is Now My Neighbour is a crime novel by Colin Dexter, the 12th novel in the Inspector Morse series

Death Is Now My Neighbour is a crime novel by Colin Dexter, the 12th novel in the Inspector Morse series.

Colin Dexter is a masterful writer who has done a magnificent job in developing the characters of Chief Inspector Morse and Sergeant Lewis. I have truly enjoyed watching them develop in his novels over the years and have marveled at the friendship that has developed in these characters of such opposite demeanor. In this most fascinating mystery, Morse faces his own mortality in some rather surprising ways while trying to resolve a murder that appears to have been a mistake

A crime novel featuring Chief Inspector Morse, in which Morse and his assistant Sergeant Lewis are called upon to investigate the murder of a young woman who was shot from close range through her kitchen window. After a visit to his doctor, Morse finds that he also has to deal with a crisis of his own.

I reading through Dexter's Inspector Morse books: this has been my favorite so far. The mystery is okay; what really matters is the relationship between Morse and Lewis. It is front and center here. Mrs. Lewis tells her husband that Morse doesn't care about anyone and Lewis replies 'He cares about me. I'm the only person he cares about." At the end of the story, Morse sends Lewis a postcard and signs it with his full name.

In the past 38 years I have watched the entire 32 episodes of Inspector Morse at least 4 times. But I have not read the books they were based on until this one.

This book was immediately recognize able as the one where two Oxford dons are running for college master.

It is very well written full of interesting words and Latin phrases and is very similar to the PBS tv shows.

Having read the book, I am even more impressed by the performance of John Thaw and Kevin Whately in the films. Overall an excellent book.

I'd heard of Inspector Morse before this, but I hadn't even seen an episode of the eponymous TV series, much less read a book featuring him. It was therefore a treat to encounter this curiously human Inspector for the first time.

Dexter's writing is erudite bordering on pedantic (much like Morse) but never tipping over into tiresome. Replete with obscure quotations and allusions to the Classics, it nonetheless is a fun read as Dexter often seems to be poking affectionate fun at these pedestals of glory.

The mystery itself is crisp and thoroughly satisfying though its telling is part thriller, part gentle ramble and part completely classical whodunnit expatiation.

But crikey, this means here's another series to hook me!

While certainly not one of the very best Inspector Morse books, Death is Now My Neighbor checks off all the boxes for a satisfying mystery read.
Pithy commentary by the Inspector? Check.
Resigned acceptance of his superior's eccentricities by the Detective Sergeant? Check.
Plot twists and red herrings? Check.
Examination of the human condition by all the actors? Check.
Satisfying resolution that punishes the wicked and rewards the plucky? Check.
On the other hand, I enjoyed the film adaptation a little more. Fewer characters to keep track of and the priceless expression on Morse's face when he realizes he's wrong. That's something not even Colin Dexter can capture in words.

Being addicted to all the Morse, Lewis, and Endeavor Masterpiece Theatre series, I was excited to see the book available. And I was not disappointed! I thoroughly enjoyed this story from the quotes beginning each chapter to the lovingly barbed exchanges between Morse and, well, everyone. The characters are wonderfully drawn and the plot is deliciously crafted. Put quite simply, I loved it.

We are given so many choices. There are characters abounding and motives that seem elusive, and then motives abound, butl suspects dying! As usual Colin Dexter has delivered us a who-done-it that leaves us wanting to read more. Chief Inspector Morse is dealing with his health that sidelines him for a few days, while Lewis is running around collecting all the evidence. Lewis shines and is finally told so by Morse. The Inspector Morse series is one you will again just for the fun.

If you're a fan of the old Inspector Morse mysteries on Masterpiece Mystery starring John Thaw, you will love these books on which they were based. The books are richly evocative of Oxford and British culture of the sixties. The dialogue is even more infused with academic detail about literature and classical music than are the TV scripts. The mystery follows a strong narrative line leading to a logical conclusion, not predictable, but not involving a deus ex machine or a last minute revelation which could not have been predicted by an attentive reader. I will definitely be reading more Colin Dexter.
As Morse lives in Oxford, it's always fun when the mystery includes the world of Oxford dons and masters. Two Oxford dons are vying for a master's position. In the middle of the intrigue, there is a murder or two. Are the Oxford dons involved? Is blackmail involved? These are just some of the questions the irascible Morse and his stalwart and patient Lewis try to answer. This may not be one of my favorite Morse mysteries, but I wouldn't have missed reading it. I read more for the wit of Morse, than the actual plots. 4.5 stars
