Format: Paperback
A book of 11 short stories, ranging from 5 to 30 minutes reading time. All compelling reading, thought provoking. All reminders of cryptic crossword clues, double bluffs, mystery and intrigue. Not all the stories feature Morse. Morse's greatest mystery is the one story with the least criminal and detective content. The story subjects include fabricating evidence, theft, escape from prison, impersonation, infidelity and murder. A likable book, worth reading, recommended for holidays or train journeys. The first Colin Dexter I've read it reminded me of Ian McEwan but not so macabre.

Highly enjoyable stories which give another chance to immerse oneself in the brilliant mind of Oxford' s greatest mind. Great in every sense.

I was thrilled to discover some Morse stories that I hadn't previously come across. However, I was very disappointed. The short story format didn't suit Dexter's style at all, as he was unable to develop the story or use Morse's character effectively. The stories would have been okay if they hadn't been Morse stories and had used a different character. In one or two of the stories the point was either so obscure, or so insignificant I couldn't even see it!

Reading the stories instead of watching them on the television is much better. You can go at your own pace.

I have to say, this book was fabulous, a Morsey delight.
Colin Dexter was a genius writing these.

A melt in the moment experience with every story.
A must read for Morse fans and newbies alike.

Great stories; the book makes me want to read some more Morse. I particularly enjoyed the Sherlock story. Bring back Morse!

Not his best, but enjoyable.it's a bit lightweight, but passes the time agreeably. Worth buying and reading for Morse fans.

Stories good but I was not expecting the Sherlock Holmes. Other than that, the twists at the end were well handled.
