A good mystery read--a quick read but enjoyable. Some of Colin Dexter's titles have too much sex for me--this one was within limits.
I loved this Colin Dexter Morse mystery just as much as the others. Morse might be a bit of a drinker and he might drive Lewis insane at times, but he always gets his perpetrator(s). A master at solving mysteries that I can never put down.
Nicholas Quinn is deaf, so he considers himself lucky to be appointed to the Foreign Examinations Board at Oxford, which designs tests for students of English around the world. But when someone slips cyanide into Nicholas's sherry, Inspector Morse has a multiple-choice murder. Any one of a tight little group of academics could have killed Quinn. Before Morse is done, all their dirty little secrets will be exposed. And a murderer will be cramming for his finals. . . .
Not up to Mr. Dexter's previous two stories. Too much jumping back and forth throughout the plot. Hard to keep up with the story.
Another good mystery with Inspector Morse.
