Death is Now My Neighbour is a crime novel by Colin Dexter, the twelfth novel in the Inspector Morse series.



At Number 17 on Bloxham Drive, young Rachel James is shot point blank through her kitchen window. Unfortunately none of the other residents can recall seeing anything suspicious that morning, including her immediate neighbour Geoffrey Owens, a reporter desperate for the scoop on this new story.

Chief Inspector Morse, aided by his Sgt. Lewis, soon discovers a cryptic 'seventeenth-century' love poem and a photograph of Rachel with a mysterious grey-haired man, clues which lead him to the prestigious Lonsdale College, where the rivalry between Julian Storrs and Dr. Dennis Cornford for the position of Master is about to turn deadly.
