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.

    " I enjoyed the Inspector Morse series on Public Television, and enjoyed reading this book by Colin Dexter. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katrina Gonsalves | 1/18/2014

    " 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. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alexandra | 1/16/2014

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

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wendy | 1/15/2014

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

    " Love reading these books, Very intriguing "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jane | 12/16/2013

    " I enjoy reading Colin Dexter's mysteries too. Inspector Morse finds himself tangled up in a death he once considered unworthy of his notice. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Philip Benge | 12/14/2013

    " One of the very best detective writers. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Edelhart Kempeneers | 12/13/2013

    " Altijd een plezier om een Inspector Morse mysterie te beluisteren. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marfy | 12/10/2013

    " Dexter is as good as anyone at contriving a complex mystery. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Avary | 11/30/2013

    " Colin Dexter writes a good English mystery series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Liz | 11/26/2013

    " Not my favorite in the Inspector Morse series, but it was OK. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Paul Jellinek | 11/13/2013

    " One of my favorite contemporary detective writers--partly because Morse and Lewis are such great characters, and partly because Dexter writes so well. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Namiko | 11/2/2013

    " This is the second time to read Morse's story. I enjoyed this one. I realize that Morse first arrests a wrong person. This makes the story exciting but the writer never mentions what will happen to the person who is innocent in this version. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 "Aubri"/Lisa | 8/7/2013

    " The mystery certainly drew me in, but I'm not a fan of Dexter's writing style. Honestly, I prefer watching the PBS Mystery! series more - John Thaw made Morse a lot more complex than just a smart detective with a drinking problem. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erin | 6/9/2013

    " A rather ight mystery by Colin Dexter. Plenty of plot twists and good character development. The story follows a group of tourists in Oxford as theft and murder befall the group. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beryl | 4/26/2013

    " Another good old fashioned English murder mystery. Fun to read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 George | 10/14/2012

    " Another in the Inspector Morse mystery series set in Oxford, England. Multilayered mystery involving murder and theft and an American touring group. A very good read which keeps you guessing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Berna | 9/24/2012

    " I enjoyed it while reading it but it was not a page-turner like many good mysteries that I have read. "
