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 8:15 a.m. on the morning of Friday, 11th 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...

Always a pleasure

Short and simply (or in the case of Morse, not so simple) gratifying. Samuel West does an excellent job of narrating.

A good story with good narration put this in the

A good story with good narration put this in the top tier of my library. The more the story goes on the deeper the mystery becomes, including an unexplained disappearance, faked letters, postcards and murder featuring multiple players and only Morse's cryptic analytical mind can eventually explain it. Another great Inspector Morse mystery.
