Overview

Here, two interlinked murders challenge Morse and Lewis. First Dr. Felix McClure, late of Wolsey College, Oxford, is found stabbed in his flat. The trail of clues leads to a college servant, one Edward Brooks. Then Brooks himself vanishes, and Morse suddenly finds himself with too many suspects, including Brooks's wife, a prostitute, and an enigmatic schoolmistress. The detective, of course, is used to such puzzles. But as he finds himself attracted - in fact, more than attracted - to one of the possible killers, Morse is at sea in a way he has never known before.

Marilyn Stasio
...Colin Dexter, that puzzlemeister without peer, has devised another infernal brainteaser in The Daughters of Cain. His detective, the brilliant, abrasive Inspector Morse, does the tricky stuff in his head. Readers are advised to get out their pencils, timetables and aspirin....Mr. Dexter is a superb technician who torments the reader with logistical details that contradict every previously established point in his puzzle. -- New York Times

Morse is brilliant, alcoholic, and a bit silly. His creator is brilliant, articulate and has enough wit to allow his brilliant hero to BE silly.
