9780804113090: Morse's Greatest Mystery and Other Stories (Inspector Morse)

"DELIGHTFUL."
--The Wall Street Journal
In short mysteries so brilliantly plotted they'll confound the cleverest of souls, Inspector Morse remains as patient as a cat at a mouse hole in the face of even the most resourceful evildoers. Muldoon, for instance, the one-legged bomber with one fatal weakness . . . the quartet of lovers whose bizarre entanglements Morse deciphers only after a beautiful woman is murdered . . . and those artful dodgers who catch the cunning and very respectful Morse with his pants down. There are mysteries featuring new characters and some familiar ones, including the great Sherlock Holmes, and a royal flush of American crooks.
"BRILLIANT . . . Inspector Morse is back, and more than welcome."
--Houston Chronicle
"Fear not. In Dexter's dexterous hands, the short-form Morse is every bit as wily and irascible as he is in the the popular Morse novels and the long-running PBS Mystery! series."
--The Raleigh News & Observer

About the Author:

Colin Dexter has won many awards for his novels including the CWA Gold Dagger and Silver Dagger awards. In 1997 he was presented with the CWA Cartier Diamond Dagger Award for outstanding services to crime literature. Colin's thirteenth and final Inspector Morse novel, The Remorseful Day, was published in 1999. He lives in Oxford.

From AudioFile:

Here are 10 short mysteries solved by Inspector Morse and several other top-notch sleuths, including Sherlock Holmes. The smooth narration by James Nelson keeps listeners awaiting further deductions and surprising conclusions. Nelson shifts from British to Scottish to quasi-American accents seamlessly (although the American accents slip from time to time). His slow cadence provides time for listeners to try to solve the mysteries before Inspector Morse does. Engrossing till the last, the performance is marred only by bleed-through recording ghosts on several of the tapes. M.B.K. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
