by Colin Dexter
Yes, there are murders and villains and red herrings in Daughters, but plot is never the main attraction in a Colin Dexter mystery. The real appeal is twofold: 1) Dexter’s tetchy protagonist, Chief Inspector Morse, who relishes classical music, drinking, smoking, and women – not necessarily in that order; and 2) Dexter’s contagious love of the English language. If you dig masterful prose with your homicide investigations, Dexter is your man. He’s certainly mine.
