Colin Dexter's Chief Inspector Morse - the cranky, heavy-drinking, and exasperatingly brilliant sleuth of the Thames Valley Police - has become one of the most beloved detectives in fiction. Now, with this collection of 11 short stories, we can savor choice examples of his dry wit, devious cunning, and psychological insight at its best.

Colin Dexter tantalizes us with six Inspector Morse adventures, ranging from bite-size morsels of intrigue to longer stories for listeners to sink their teeth into. Then, for added variety, Dexter shows his range with five mysteries featuring new characters and some familiar ones: one story features that other great English detective, Sherlock Holmes, in a tale that rivals those of Conan Doyle himself. Morse's Greatest Mystery and the other stories in this collection are a banquet for the mystery lover - rich, varied, and satisfying.

Stories included are:

  • As Good as Gold
  • Morse's Greatest Mystery
  • Evans Tries an O-Level
  • Dead as a Dodo
  • At the Lulu-Bar Motel
  • Neighbourhood Watch
  • A Case of Mis-identity
  • The Inside Story
  • Monty's Revolver

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Peg | 10/25/2013

    " I thought it was a good idea to read this collection of short stories, some with Morse as the protagonist, before he was killed off in two more books. I was happy with that decision. The stories were exceptional. I stayed involved. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rachel | 8/15/2013

    " A nice collection. I would certainly read an Inspector Morse, or, maybe more likely, watch one of the TV show episodes. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dignan107 | 7/3/2013

    " A good mix of light-hearted stories. Some Morse some not. The prison escape was my favourite with 'Last Call' another enjoyable read. Well worth a re-read at some future stage. Highly recommended "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah | 5/14/2013

    " My first introduction to the world of Morse and it is wonderful. Very humorous and clever - and I love the characters Morse and Lewis, natch. Even the non-Morse stories were really good (especially the one with Sherlock Holmes). I'm really going to have to hunt down the rest of the series now! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dot | 3/3/2013

    " A nice light read on audio while resting. Short stories with old friends Morse and Lewis solving some intriguing mysteries against the backdrop of Oxford. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 George | 11/15/2012

    " Several short stories by Colin Dexter only some of which are Morse and Lewis stories. Many of the stories have a whimsical tone. If you are serious Morse fan than this anthology probably isn't for you. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karina | 11/9/2012

    " I loved all Morse books so far but I was disappointed with this one. They did not have that unique atmosphere. In my opinion writer did not succeed with genre of short story. I would certainly read his novels and try to forget it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah | 10/28/2012

    " A nice diversion for Morse fans! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kate | 10/25/2012

    " Excellent short stories. Only a couple that I didn't enjoy, but the others were enjoyable and quick read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jim | 10/22/2012

    " Good Stuff. Short stories, some better than others, but all enjoyable. "
