    Although The Dead of Jericho is the fifth novel in Colin Dexter sInspector Morseseries, published in 1981, it was interestingly the first one to be dramatised for television in 1986 The rest, as they say, is history The characters of Morse and Lewis are now solidly defined and sparring against each other nicely John Thaw made the role of Morse very much his own, and it must have been impossible for Dexter to forget Thaw s idiosyncratic depiction in subsequent novels, so that the TV adapta Although The Dead of Jericho is the fifth novel in Colin Dexter sInspector Morseseries, published in 1981, it was interestingly the first one to be dramatised for television in 1986 The rest, as they say, is history The characters of Morse and Lewis are now solidly defined and sparring against each other nicely John Thaw made the role of Morse very much his own, and it must have been impossible for Dexter to forget Thaw s idiosyncratic depiction in subsequent novels, so that the TV adaptations would then feed into Colin Dexter s future ideas and portrayals Dexter had been living in Oxford for a few years prior to writing these novels, and was never one to hide his personal views, referring in this one, for instance, tothe vandals who sit on the City s planning committees. But digressing apart, perhaps it is precisely because the two main characters have found their feet, that this was the first novel to be chosen Certainly we see a muchhuman side to Morse in this novel Typically he falls for a woman right at the beginning, but atypically she is murdered very early on too, and this leads Morse to some very reckless decisions and foolhardy actions The reader is encouraged to sympathise with his predicament, and see his character as flawed, as Morse usesandunconventional methods to discover how Anne Scott met her death Sometimes the action even approaches farce, as Morse behaves with less and less caution, even to the point of falling over dustbins whilst trying to gain unlawful access to a property, and making Detective Constable Walters increasingly puzzled, not to mention suspicious, as to the eccentric behaviour of his boss.False leads abound, as usual Several husbands and or fathers seem to be absent or dead, with circumstances left vague Did Anne s husband Michael really have a fatal accident in his car How exactly did the father of two of her pupils, Michael and Ted Murdoch die Why did the older brother Michael nearly put out his eyes What of the other two brothers, Charles and Conrad Richards Was Conrad having an affair with Charles wife, Celia, or was that past history What about George Jackson, the nosy neighbour with binoculars across the road from Anne Was he just a peeping Tom or maybe also a blackmailer and or murderer And what of all the bridge playing set, none of whom seemed very upset at the murder of one of their own except that they were then a player down Feed into this satisfying jigsaw puzzle a subplot directly echoing Sophocles, and you have a rich conundrum Morse explains to Lewis the story of Oedipus, who unknowingly murdered his father Laius and married his own mother Jocasta Strangely, they agree that the events seem uncannily to mirror the story But Lewis is puzzled Surely his boss is not advocating superstition a kind of predetermination of events And Morse puts his mind at rest It was just an idea, a quirky coincidence, partly brought to mind by Anne s predilection for Ancient Greek Tragedies Lewis and Morse have developed a mutual admiration for each other in this novel Lewis admires his boss flair and intelligence his talent for inspired guesswork In one episode where Morse is behaving in an unbearable way towards Lewis, Lewis reflects that,he had often seen Morse in this mood before, snappy and irritable It usually meant the chief was cross with himself about something usually, too, it meant that it wasn t going to be long before his mind leaped prodigiously into the dark and hit, as often as not, upon some strange and startling truth Morse in his turn, values Lewis tenacity and dedication to the jobThe man was so wholesome, somehow honest, unpretentious, humble, almost, in his acceptance of psychology and life A lovable man a good man And he is quick to give credit where credit is due,You are a bloody genius, my son he tells an uncomprehending Lewis, thereby encouraging the reader to chuckle at the slow wittedness of both characters, in certain situations.Yet Morse does not suffer fools gladly The relationship between him and the pathologist Max is brought out for the first time in this novel Morse, we are told, has aprofound contempt for the timid twaddle of pathologists Yet he has a grudging respect for Max, who isof a friend, and the two engage in light banter and bets We learn too that Morsehad never quite forgiven his parents for christening their only offspring as they had , although all we know at this stage is that his initials are E.M We learn too that Lewis left school at 15, and dragged himself through various adult classes at technical college until he could enter the police force He is not afraid of hard graft.So now we have the two characters nicely polarised grumpy Morse and industrious methodical Lewis Morse, who always seems to get out of paying for his round at the pub Morse, who prides himself on his speed at completing crosswords There is rather a nice episode where Morse is doing The Times Crossword in one room, whereas further down the corridor at the same time, Lewis is completing a far easier puzzle And we have a voyeuristic enjoyment from watching the sparks fly between these two.Dexter has again structured this novel into four books , and the chapters within each are preceded by a quotation usually a literary one This is an engaging device Also becoming a regular feature is the secondary murder, partway through the book Yet again, the plot has a satisfying twist right at the end However, reading the books in chronological order, the same plot device is used here as was used in the previous book,Service of All the Deadthat of substitution, in order to provide a seemingly infallible alibi Nevertheless, I did not guess the substitution myself it came as a surprise The red herring Greek subplot was fiendishly clever, and the whole novel was a very entertaining read

    It s the first Morse novel for me, and at first I was a little taken aback by the rapid progression of events, but once I embraced it it had all the twists and turns and mistaken identities and illicit relationships and gossip and rumours one could possibly wish from an English mystery novel I took it with me on holiday, and it was pretty much the perfect read for those circumstances.

    DI Morse, as depicted by John Thaw in the 90s series, was a little too sour for my liking, but I watched many nonetheless because they were well designed and charactered, as well as nicely set I

I watched many nonetheless because they were well designed and charactered, as well as nicely set I recently treated myself to the entire Endeavour series, with the excellent Shaun Evans and Roger Allam who makes an appearance in an early Morse episode , and thought them infinitely better, with perhaps only a couple of episodes not entirely absorbing The characterisation of this latter series was superb, as was the sense of time as well as place, something the original series didn t have to recreate, being contemporary While initially the 60s setting felt as drab as the reality of the era with the pervading sense of grubby formica and outside loos I soon began to appreciate the amount of work put into Endeavour, and that Russell Lewis, who wrote the entirety of the 6 series, had had a hand in one of the original Morse episodes But the pull of the later series was not merely its superb scripting and production values, or its superb blend of characters with their homely names, from Endeavour to Thursday, Bright to Strange, Fancy to Trewlove, but the very fine performances of the two leads, made their own while developing a father son relationship that was affecting, and developing the characterisation and mannerisms of the evolving Morse persona.So a certain sourness from years of establishment nonsense, reorganisation, injustice, corruption, and simply not fitting in was, I see now, inevitable in the older Morse yet it still detracted from the enjoyment of the watching, whereas every nuance Shaun Evans brought to the prototypical detective the impatience, the earlobe tugging, the booze was beautifully apt, and I initially watched the series for that superb characterisation than anything else.Such a preamble to my first Dexter novel is by way of establishing probably a common factor that many people must have been very familiar with Morse as DI before they turned to the novels After the loyal cameos and later references to Colin Dexter throughout Endeavour, I became curious I had had no intention of reading any of the Morse series there were far too many detective mysteries, hardboiled private eye stories, spy thrillers, suspense thrillers, procedurals and crime horror novels on my immediate to read list already, all of them classics But escaping a sudden shower the other day gave me an opportunity to browse in Waterstones just browse, mind and I was drawn ineluctably to the crime shelf, where I selected my first Morse novel, slightly grudging the full rrp On return, I scheduled it for soon , but books rise to the surface of the mind and so the list, call to be read, and establish an appetite for specifically that title which must be sated From 6th to 1st in 24 hours, a call I could not ignore.I don t know why I had unfairly judged that, with all the classics on my list of crime fiction to read, Dexter s novels could not compete Having recently finished The Big Sleep 1939 again , what really could compete or compare Perhaps I had assumed that they might be pedestrian, non literary and so not quite yet worthy for a claim to the rare and precious reading space I put aside for pleasure But none of any of it They are erudite, comfortable as old boots, somewhat demanding Latin and Poetry , and while the pace may be pedestrian, the writing and content are certainly not You can tell without referring to his bio that Dexter did classics at uni Yet it doesn t have the feel of being highbrow, of talking down it establishes its sightline, and you lock in or put down And the setting It is as classical as Rome, but still with that inevitable English smuttiness largely due to the corruption of the council vandals of the past, like any other provincial town But none of this detracts rather it lends a realism, that, despite gorgeous appearances, every place, every life, has its patina, shadows or grime And crime.For you are, before anything else, inside the personality of the man before you are inside the mind of the inspector, the one greyish, baggy and boozy, the other brilliant, braggish and tetchy And almost immediately in that sense of shyness comingled with social awkwardness and the inevitable tristesse of failure as a private man, against the success of the accomplished detective While, for example, you are very aware of Marlowe s personality, attractions, needs, tolerances, compromises and ethical lines, they are sublimations of the primary narrative, the private eye caper with Morse, the balance is much finer there is no separating the personality from the detective, so well is he characterised and compromised He doesn t just fight a winning battle with the criminal he fights a losing battle with himself which Marlowe never quite does.So a certain melancholy lingers amid the honeyed and verdigris Oxford imagery, and not a little pedestrian soot The great and the good, the ordinary and the nondescript, all are levelled by death and murder But we are raised from pondering these baser points by the flux of the classics streamed throughout, from the chapter epithets to the involvement of mythology in the plot And if Morse gets some things wrong, it s the fact that his mind leaps into thesecultured backwaters which are the setting for the series, novels and TV It s an essential part of the fabric, and it s seeded in Dexter s books I enjoy those splashes, as much as I enjoy the establishing shots of the cupolaed rooves of Oxford I also enjoy the idea of the eclectic the opera, the crosswords whereas I enjoy neither pursuit, just as I enjoy the idea of rewarding and refreshing pints, but indulge for neither reason It adds flavour.A very convincing start, and I m wanting forI feel comfortable, somehow, here This is certainly because we are not in the otherwise modern terrain of the slasher, the serial killer, the psychopath, nor the forensic spatter land It s all muchurbane, aimed at the brain, and I fancyof the same
