Synopsis: "[MORSE IS] THE MOST PRICKLY, CONCEITED, AND GENUINELY BRILLIANT DETECTIVE SINCE HERCULE POIROT".--The New York Times Book ReviewThis time Inspector Morse brings the imposition on himself. He could have been vacationing in Greece instead of investigating a murder that the police have long since written off. But he finds the crime--the brutal killing of a suburban churchwarden--fascinating. In fact, he uncovers not one murder but two, for the fatal fall of St. Frideswides vicar from the church tower Morse reckons to be murder as well. And as he digs into the lives and unsanctified lusts of the late vicar's erring flock, the list of the dead grows longer. Not even the oddly appealing woman he finds scrubbing the church floor can compensate Morse for the trouble he's let himself in for. So he has another pint, follows his hunches, and sets out to untangle the deadly business of homicide. . . . "A BRILLIANTLY PLOTTED DETECTIVE STORY".--Evening Standard (London)"WILY. . . ELEGANT".--Observer (London)

About the Author: Colin Dexter twice won the Gold Dagger Award, the Crime Writers' Association's honor for the best novel of the year. He was the author of many novels, novellas, and short stories featuring Inspector Morse. He died in 2017.

Book Description St Martins Press, New York, 1979. Hardback. Book Condition: Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. First US Edition. First US edition, hardback in dustwrapper. 20.5 × 13cm, 256pp. Chief Inspector Morse was alone among the congregation in suspecting continued unrest in the quiet parish of St Frideswide’s. Most people could still remember the churchwarden’s murder. A few could still recall the murderer’s suicide. Now even the police had closed the case. Until a chance meeting among the tombstones reveals startling new evidence of a conspiracy to deceive. Condition: A good copy, but the board edges are heavily scuffed to the top and bottom. The dustwrapper is attractive and has not been price-clipped, remnants of a price-sticker to the rear. The inner binding is sound and the text pages are clean, some faint staining to the pages' top edge. Bookseller Inventory # 007402

Book Description St Martin's Press, 1979. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. First (American) edition, first impression of the fourth Inspector Morse mystery; printed and bound in the UK to the same format/design as the UK edition. Very Good minus: firmly bound in clean and sharp boards sunned to extremities; sunned and pushed to spine tips; tanned with faint spotting to the edge of the page block; a couple of small stains to the fore-edge, penetrating slightly - otherwise, internally crisp and clean. The unclipped dustwrapper ($9.95 stated) is Very Good+: crisp and bright with a vivid, unfaded red colour to the spine; a touch of crinkling to the tips of the spine and corners, and a tiny indentation to the spine - presents beautifully in a removable, archival-quality Brodart cover. All orders are sent very carefully wrapped in bubble wrap and sturdy cardboard. Bookseller Inventory # 489
