The thought suddenly occurred to Morse that this would be a marvellous time to murder a few of the doddery old bachelor dons. No wives to worry about their whereabouts; no landladies to whine about the unpaid rents. In fact nobody would miss most of them at all.

By the 16th of July the Master of Lonsdale was concerned, but not yet worried.

Dr Browne-Smith had passed through the porter's lodge at approximately 8.15am on the morning of Friday, the 11th of July. And nobody had heard from him since.

Plenty of time to disappear, thought Morse. And plenty of time, too, for someone to commit murder.

    " Colin Dexter is my favorite author, because he created my favorite characters! I love all of his books and wish there were more. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Wendy | 1/15/2014

    " Sixth title in the Inspector Morse series set in Oxford England. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Roxane | 12/29/2013

    " Not the best in the series. Inspector Morse always has a multitude of theories when working on a case - sometimes he is right but a lot of the time he is wrong. This story ends with just his theory as to what actually happened - so you are left wondering, was he right this time? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melissa | 12/23/2013

    " This one had me guessing. A good mixture of whodunnit, how'd they do it, but perhaps a little weak on the what'd they do it for front. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jessica | 12/2/2013

    " I like Inspector Morse, but I didn't love this story. I literally still had no idea in the last few pages who it was until the reveal and I don't feel like we got to see Morse at his best. I'll probably try another one, see if it is better. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Primadonna | 11/3/2013

    " Roundabout kind of way. In a way, it's very old-fashioned, if you know what I mean. Bachelor detectives and oh-so-many clues here and there. I'm not that impressed with this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Philip Benge | 10/13/2013

    " One of the very best detective writers. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Helaine | 10/3/2013

    " Inspector Morse is one of my all time favorite British detectives. I was very sorry to see Colin Dexter let him die and end the series. I keep hope alive, that like in the soap operas, it is all a mistake and Morse will live again. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tina | 8/17/2013

    " Colin Dexter is one of my favorite authors of any genre. Inspector Morse, who I first discovered through the brilliant PBS series that aired in the 1980s, is a brilliant, prickly curmudgeon with eclectic tastes and a heart of gold. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ann | 7/26/2013

    " I am a big fan of the BBC series based on the Colin Dexter novels. This was a fun read and a good way to extend my enjoyment of the series. I look forward to exploring more. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Dirk | 6/12/2013

    " The television series is so much better than this book. Unbelievingly, unconvincing, and clearly written in another era. Exchanged a copy of A Killing Frost for this book at the tourist agency in Myrtos, Crete and still regret that decision. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jcheld | 5/25/2013

    " more convoluted and challenging than it appears; This series is new to me. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rachel Hawes | 4/28/2013

    " The one with the Battle of El-Alamein, Morse's first love and the dismembered corpse at Thrupp. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sara | 4/11/2013

    " One of the best, every action and character extremely well developed, I wanted to read this book until I got to the end, couldn't wait. One of Dexter's best mysteries. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jan | 10/12/2012

    " Not the best Dexter book so far. Still a great plot and wonderful characters, but this was a little convoluted, and was difficult to follow at times. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kathy Gradidge | 7/27/2012

    " I found the plot a little thin! Morse just guesses his way to the solution. Definitely not the best Morse book... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Edelhart Kempeneers | 3/2/2012

    " Waar blijft hij het halen? Op naar nummer zeven! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jim Behringer | 1/24/2012

    " Cryptic descriptions of what the chapter will contain are given at the head of each chapter, adding to the interest. Beautiful use of language and dry humor. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brian Clegg | 1/5/2012

    " Has to be one Colin Dexter's weakest. I love Morse, but the ending is very contrived. The first two thirds or so of the book is up to his usual standard, though, and any Morse fan will want to read it, even if they won't consider it a top notch example of the genre. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 LeeAnne | 9/14/2011

    " What can I say? It's Inspector Morse and the long suffering Lewis doing what they do best. Great stuff! "

    " A convoluted tale but an interesting mystery. "
