Publisher's Summary

The thought suddenly occurred to Morse that this would be a marvellous time to murder a few of the doddery old bachelor dons. No wives to worry about their whereabouts; no landladies to whine about the unpaid rents. In fact nobody would miss most of them at all.

By the 16th of July the Master of Lonsdale was concerned, but not yet worried.

Dr Browne-Smith had passed through the porter's lodge at approximately 8.15am on the morning of Friday, the 11th of July. And nobody had heard from him since.

Plenty of time to disappear, thought Morse. And plenty of time, too, for someone to commit murder.

"[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)

    "Morse is the best"
    What does Kevin Whately bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Whately is a good reader. Having one of the stars of the TV series read these stories gives it a special quality.

    Story
    "Lewis as Morse"

    Loved this tale and recognised the TV episode (though not called the same). Great having Kevin Whately's narration who even sounded a tad like John Thaw, no doubt having worked with him for so many years. I did have to rewind an odd time to get the characters or events clear. But a truly good listen.
