It was Chief Superintendent Strange's opinion that too little progress had been made by the Thames Valley Police since the discovery of a corpse in a North Oxford flat. The victim had been killed by a single stab wound to the stomach. Yet the police had no weapon, no suspect, no motive. But within days of taking over the investigation, Chief Inspector Morse and Detective Sergeant Lewis uncover startling new information about the life and death of the victim, Dr. Felix McClure, late of Wolsey College, Oxford. The trail leads directly to a staircase in Wolsey College, and in particular to a former "Scout" there, one Edward Brooks-who disappears following the theft of a knife from the Pitt Rivers Museum. Then another body is discovered and suddenly Morse finds himself with too many suspects, including Brooke's long-suffering wife, his stepdaughter, and an enigmatic schoolmistress. Although each, it seems, has an unimpeachable, and unbreakable, alibi.
