Publisher's Summary

The death of Sylvia Kaye figured dramatically in Thursday afternoon's edition of the Oxford Mail.

By Friday evening, Inspector Morse had informed the nation that the police were looking for a dangerous man facing charges of wilful murder, sexual assault, and rape.

But as the obvious leads fade into twilight and darkness, Morse becomes more and more convinced that passion holds the key.

"[Dexter] is a magician with character, story construction, and the English language....Colin Dexter and Morse are treasures of the genre." (Mystery News)
"It is a delight to watch this brilliant, quirky man deduce." (Minneapolis Star & Tribune)

    "Why was it abridged?"
    What would have made Last Bus to Woodstock better?

    Let the wonderful Kevin Whatley read the unabridged book! I was so excited to see that he was narrating the books on which the tv series he was such a great part of was based, but so much of the book was left out,t hat I couldn't finish it.


    Has Last Bus to Woodstock turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Yes, if they are abridged


    Which character – as performed by Kevin Whately – was your favorite?

    Morse


    What character would you cut from Last Bus to Woodstock?

    none


    Any additional comments?

    Try again - don't abridge

    "Last Bus to Woodstock"

    A mystery reader's delight. Crusty Inspector Morse bluffs and blusters his way through clues and byways to discover whodunnit in this case that turns his sensitivities topsy turvy. The presentation is greatly enriched by Kevin Whitely's narration.

    "Translates better on screen"

    Performance acted very well by Kevin Whately

    Translates better to TV though as extra characters a bit confusing.

    "Terrible editing"

    Excellent story. Performance also fantastic. But editing is atrocious. The work is abridged, and sometimes it cuts out in full flow and begins a new scene.
