Morse solves a theft and two murders in customary style.,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Jewel That Was Ours (Inspector Morse) (Paperback)
I enjoyed reading this book; a good mix of personalities with clues relevant and irrelevant, and good use of the Oxford setting. I was sometimes a bit worried about keeping up with the action, as there was lots going on. Perhaps I need to read more of this author's work, as this was the first I had tried. The Morse of this book is rather different from the person played on TV by John Thaw; he has a cruder and less sophisticated personality in spite of his interest in and enjoyment of music. Perhaps this is because we see more of what is going on in his mind.
