Daughters of Cain

ebook
“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. . . .
Praise for 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
