Quote for the commonplace book 003

“We’ve been on a lot of cases together, Lewis–with lots of people
involved; but I don’t reckon the motives are ever all that
different–love, hate, jealousy, revenge….”

 Inspector Morse, in Colin Dexter’s The Secret of Annexe 3, 1986

 This about sums up why not to read mystery novels. What’s
changed since the days of Holmes and Watson?
