"AUDACIOUS AND AMUSING. . . MAY BE THE BEST BOOK YET IN THIS DESERVEDLY CELEBRATED SERIES."
--The Wall Street Journal
It was only the second time Inspector Morse had ever taken over a murder enquiry after the preliminary--invariably dramatic--discovery and sweep of the crime scene. Secretly pleased to have missed the blood and gore, Morse and the faithful Lewis go about finding the killer who stabbed Dr. Felix McClure, late of Wolsey College. In another part of Oxford, three women--a housecleaner, a schoolteacher, and a prostitute--are playing out a drama that has long been unfolding. It will take much brain work, many pints, and not a little anguish before Morse sees the startling connections between McClure's death and the daughters of Cain. . . .
"VERY CLEVERLY CONSTRUCTED. . . Dexter writes with an urbanity and range of reference that is all his own."
--Los Angeles Times
"YOU DON'T REALLY KNOW MORSE UNTIL YOU'VE READ
HIM. . . . Viewers who have enjoyed British actor John Thaw as Morse in the PBS'Mystery!' anthology series should welcome the deeper character development in Dexter's novels."
--Chicago Sun-Times
"A MASTERFUL CRIME WRITER WHOM FEW OTHERS MATCH."
--Publishers Weekly

Following the success of The Way Through the Woods, Dexter returns with a superb new mystery featuring the brilliant Inspector Morse. When too little progress is made on a baffling murder case, Chief Superintendent Strange calls on Morse. Within a day, Morse has too many suspects, including the victim's long-suffering wife and stepdaughter.

Editorial Reviews

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
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
The 11th Inspector Morse mystery finds the occasionally caustic detective investigating the murder of a retired academic. Apr.
