Inspector Lewis ( visu )
5 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 629 libraries worldwide
Inspector Robert Lewis, protégé of the legendary Inspector Morse, and his brilliant new partner, Detective Sergeant James Hathaway, return to the streets of Cambridge and the halls of Oxford University with three brand new mysteries to unravel. In Whom the gods would destroy, Detectives Lewis and Hathaway are thrown into a delicate murder case that implicates one of Oxford University's most prominent figures--college Principal Sefton Lim--when an old classmate of Linn's is found dead. In Old school ties, Lewis comes face to face with his past when the murder of bright young Jo Gilchrist pulls Lewis and Hathaway into a case driven by celebrity, scheming, and dangerous sexual politics. In Expiation, when a North Oxford housewife is found hanged, it appears to be an open and shut case of suicide. But though she leaves a devastated husband and two young daughters, she left no suicide note. The missing note and victim's seemingly perfect life leads Lewis to suspect foul play
