The Silent World of Nicholas Quinn is the third of thirteen Chief Inspector Morse detective mysteries by Colin Dexter. It is a story to read in a single sitting, because the plotting gets into quite a tangle. If I put it down, I forget who claimed to be where with whom. I have a picture of the author with sticky notes all over his office trying to remember what each character had said and where they were supposed to be.

I have enjoyed every one of Colin Dexter’s novels. He never assumes his readers are stupid. Still, the basic premise of a victim who relies on lip-reading would be more interesting if he had not died at the start of the book. Never kill off your most interesting character with so many chapters to go.
