Publisher's Summary

Last Bus to Woodstock is the novel that began Colin Dexter's phenomenally successful Inspector Morse series.

'Do you think I'm wasting your time, Lewis?'

Lewis was nobody's fool and was a man of some honesty and integrity.

'Yes, sir.'

An engaging smile crept across Morse's mouth. He thought they could get on well together....

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 willful 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....

Such a disappointment

Sexist, impausible boring. The solution makes no sense. Great Morse not so great. Reader fine.

Excellent

Looking forward to the next in the series...I am downloading it immediately after writing this review.
I read this series many years ago, so long ago I'd forgotten the storylines. I only remembered that they were excellent and the audio book does not disappoint. Colin Dexter's twists and turns always leave one guessing and captivated.

A great series from Colin Deter and well narrated

A great series from Colin Deter and well narrated by Samuel West. One investigation leads to another as they slowly become linked in unexpected ways and surprises in the plot continue right up until the end. A top tier effort.

A restorative

Where does Last Bus to Woodstock rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

quite high

Who was your favorite character and why?

Morse; always.

What about Samuel West’s performance did you like?

The pace, the punctuation, the absence of the usual English exaggerated dramatization. Just outstanding.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Look up the Tv series, enough.

Any additional comments?

An enormous restorative to the original series; brilliant narration
