Summary (From the publisher):

Homer Kelly is thrilled to be at Oxford University as a visiting lecturer. He's especially excited about exploring the Oxford University Museum, which is home to many marvels of natural history, including the remains of one of the last dodos. The tranquillity of the ancient university is shattered, however, when a night watchman plunges to his death from the museum's glass roof. No sooner has Homer begun enjoying his professorial adventure abroad than he must once again play part-time detective. As he sets off on his search for answers to this most real and inauspicious death, he also begins a philosophical journey far more challenging than any begun in a classroom, and discovers a crime much more sinister and troubling: God Himself seems dead as a dodo. Who committed murder sublime? Things get even more puzzling when the handsome young local priest commits suicide, leaving a note saying simply, "The answer is no." Apparently Homer's not the only one struggling with the great questions of life.(from the publisher)
