Death Is Now My Neighbor (Inspector Morse Series #12) by Colin Dexter

Why would a sniper shoot suburban physiotherapist Rachel James as she sips her morning coffee? Inspector Morse's hunt for answers kicks off with a tabloid journalist, winds through the strip clubs of Soho, then returns to Oxford, where two senior dons and their wives battle for a plum promotion. Then, on the personal front, Inspector Morse receives intimations of his own mortality.

And while Morse muses on life, he reveals his first name at last. . . .

From the Paperback edition.

I have watched most of the Inspector Morse Mysteries on TV, I don't find it disappointing, like many of the books that have been made for a TV series. Follows very close to the TV show. However you get a much closer look at the lives of the stories main characters. I just wish that you had the complete set of Colin Dexter's Morse series.

This is the most enjoyable Morse book I have read to date. I find that the relationship between Morse and Lewis is the backbone of the novel, the fact that a murder (or murders) is being solved at the same time is incidental. The banter between our two heroes brings them to believable life , and once again we can sympathise wholeheartedly with Lewis for putting up with his cantankerous boss. I also love Colin Dexter's digs at academia, although GCSE Media Studies teachers and students might not be so tolerant! I have a sense of dread, however, in Morse's worsening physical condition, and feel that Colin Dexter is preparing us for the worst. However, we at least know Morse's first name, and share in Lewis's gratification at being told it.

Have enjoyed the pbs spin off with lewis as head detective and the prequel though that only lasted two seasons. Excellent classic mysteries along with James though hers dont film well you have to have a"cast" of regulars and good foil assist to make any series better and morris and lewis are i cried at the last in series at morris death which could have been avoided if he had any sense but alcoholics are self destructive
