The sweet countenance of Reason greeted Morse serenely when he woke, and told him that it would be no bad idea to have a quiet look at the problem itself before galloping off to a solution.

Chief Inspector Morse was alone among the congregation in suspecting continued unrest in the quiet parish of St Frideswide's. Most people could still remember the churchwarden's murder. A few could still recall the murderer's suicide. Now even the police have closed the case - until a chance meeting among the tombstones reveals startling new evidence of a conspiracy to deceive.

Listener Opinions

    " Another excellent one - a fun read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Clara | 1/1/2014

    " E. Morse likes crosswords and Wagner, drinks a lot of beer, and is lucky in crimesolving but not in love. He's a total rockstar, thanks to C. Dexter's engaging writing. I watched almost no television whilst chipping away at Service of All the Dead. Who was the guy in the sunglasses?! I had to read the whole thing because I just couldn't figure it out. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jan | 12/27/2013

    " Not the best of the Colin DFexter's Inspector Morse books I have read, but still good. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rachel Hawes | 12/24/2013

    " The one where they all keep falling off the church roof, identities are masked (in a way they couldn't be in this age of DNA testing) and Morse falls in love. Again! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sho | 12/22/2013

    " I liked the story, but frankly the writing isn't brilliant and all in all I prefer the TV series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Edelhart Kempeneers | 11/22/2013

    " Nummer vier uit de "Morse"-thrillerreeks. Wederom klasse. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Esdaile | 11/22/2013

    " This is poorly written, the plot is uninteresting. Much more seriously the writer seems not to care in the least about his characters and in contrast to many mystery writers in the same genre, there seems to be no moral concern with crime whatsoever. The entire work reeks of "he he I can make money out of whodunnits too everyone els ewhy cant I?" I read the book only a few weeks ago and have largely forgotten the implausible plot and even more implausbile deaths. What did strike me is that the author had no feeling for the setting and for the victims he descibes except as a way of making money out of a popular genre. This dreary and badly written book left a bitter taste in my mouth. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda | 11/17/2013

    " It was fun hearing Kevin Whately, the narrator, competently do his own Sgt. Lewis and Inspector Morse in the audio version of this title. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 David Matthews | 9/30/2013

    " Story line a bit far fetched for my liking. Still read it all though "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dignan107 | 9/13/2013

    " Another good Morse yarn. Full of twists and turns, the pages turned themselves at times. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bonnie | 8/25/2013

    " This is the fourth book in the series and not quite as good as the later ones. The library doesn't have the first three, so I guess I'll have to order them. I really enjoy his allusions to literature and grammar. I know I'm weird. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nancy | 8/20/2013

    " Really so many bodies, so little time. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Wendy | 2/22/2013

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

    " I really enjoyed rereading this book. I just love the language of Morse ! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Peg | 7/28/2012

    " Better than those that came before. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sara Kate | 3/20/2012

    " Not my favorite Morse novel in the end, but in its defense, during the three days I was reading it, I could hardly put it down. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Philip Benge | 12/16/2011

    " One of the very best detective writers. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah | 7/16/2011

    " Another thrilling book in the Inspector Morse series. Probably one of my favorites so far. The Morse & Lewis scenes were outstanding and the ending had me smiling a bit, especially the last line about Morse's first name. I can't wait to see how this story played out on the TV series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Courteney | 4/6/2011

    " Thought this was a really great mystery! Difficult to discover truth because all characters have their moral flaws--just like real life! "
