I have been a fan of the TV shows Endeavour and Lewis for some years, but for some reason have never seen-or read-an Inspector Morse mystery. As a mystery, Colin Dexter’s Service of All the Dead was intriguing, and I particularly liked the way the characters of Morse and Lewis were brought across. Two deaths, both deceased men are from the same Oxford church. One murdered, one apparent suicide. Chance leads to renowned police officer Inspector Morse taking another look at the original police findings, and trying to shed some new light on the case.
Everybody knows what the “Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, The Universe, and Everything” is. Everybody, that is, who has been blessed with reading the gem that is The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.
