An Inspector Morse Mystery

The case seems so simple that Inspector Morse deems it beneath his notice. A wealthy, elderly American tourist has a heart attack in her room at Oxford’s luxurious Randolph Hotel. Missing from the scene is the lady’s handbag, which contained the Wolvercote Tongue, a priceless jewel that her late husband had bequeathed to the Ashmolean Museum just across the street. Morse proceeds to spend a great deal of time thinking—and drinking—in the hotel’s bar, certain the solution is close at hand, until conflicting stories, suspicious doings, and a real murder convince him otherwise.

    " Interesting that the book was based on the TV show. But the book ended VERY differently. Many more plot twists and even a different muderer. I'm sure I'll read more of them. "

    " Easy to see why these adapt to TV so well, but I didn't really enjoy the writing style! "
