Product description

Book Description

'A classic Dexter mix of mysterious corpses, intriguing clues, dreaming spires – and Morse himself' Today

Product Description


He looked overweight around the midriff, though nowhere else, and she wondered whether perhaps he drank too much. He looked weary, as if he had been up most of the night conducting his investigations ...

For Oxford, the arrival of twenty-seven American tourists is nothing out of the ordinary ... until one of their number is found dead in Room 310 at the Randolph Hotel. It looks like a sudden - and tragic - accident. Only Chief Inspector Morse appears not to overlook the simultaneous theft of a jewel-encrusted antique from the victim's handbag ...

Then, two days later, a naked and battered corpse is dragged from the River Cherwell. A coincidence? Maybe. But this time Morse is determined to prove the link ...


"The Inspector Morse series, both the novels and the television dramas, are among the finest creations of British culture and are known and loved all over the world." Sydney Morning Herald

"Let those who lament the decline of the English detective story reach for Colin Dexter"
