Dr Browne-Smith had passed through the porter's lodge at 8.15am and nobody had heard from him since. Plenty of time for him to disappear, thought Inspector Morse, and plenty of time for him to cover his trail. Other Morse books include "Service of All Dead" and "The Dead of Jericho".

From the Inside Flap:

"[Morse is] the most prickly, conceited, and genuinely brilliant detective since Hercule Poirot."
--The New York Times Book Review
Inspector Morse isn't sure what to make of the truncated body found dumped in the Oxford Canal, but he suspects it may be all that's left of an elderly Oxford don last seen boarding the London train several days before. Whatever the truth, the inspector knows it won't be simple--it never is. As he retraces Professor Browne-Smith's route through a London netherworld of topless bars and fancy bordellos, his forebodings are fulfilled. The evidence mounts; so do the bodies. So Morse downs another pint, unleashes his pit bull instincts, and solves a mystery that defies all logic.
"[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
