Dr Browne-Smith had passed through the porter's lodge at approximately 8. I really like Dexter's writing style and the characters he creates. Morse is called in to solve themurder. The corpse is wearing a suit that belonged to Browne-Smith, but it's missing its head, arms and legs. Browne-Smith is an Oxford don who is dying of a brain tumor. The rest is a convoluted mess.

If it wasn't Brown Smith then who could it be? I mean - really - who doesn't love Morse? Pages are intact and are not marred by notes or highlighting, but may contain a neat previous owner name. As always, Morse wends his way amongst the clues and the numerous dead bodies, all connected to the first. At the present time, Browne-Smith is a Professor at Oxford. I didn't see the ending coming which is good in a mystery book. Buy more than one book and we'll combine your shipping to save you money. But fans of the series are sure to enjoy it. Dexter also wrote some of the screenplays for the series.

Plenty of time to disappear, thought Morse. And nobody had heard from him since. We learn more about Morse's past as the missing Don is known to him from his Oxford University days and was one of the examiners on his 'Greats', which he failed due to taking time out for a romance with a young woman ca An Oxford Don is thought to be missing and Morse is asked to keep a 'gentle eye' on things for the Master of Lonsdale. Peraltro qui mi pare che. And so Inspector Morse and the ever faithful Lewis begin their journey into the darkest recesses of a murderers mind. In which Morse's mind drifts elsewhere as the police-surgeon enunciates some of the scientific principles concerning immersion in fluids. Whatever the truth, the inspector knows it won't be simple--it never is.

The plots are good, intricate, or perhaps too intricate sometimes, and there is something about Colin Dexter's writing style that doesn't click for me. His father suggested that he might be able to find a niche in the police force, and the rest, as they say, is history. In this case, I think Dexter was being a bit too cute in his switchbacks in the story. By the 16th of July the Master of Lonsdale was concerned, but not yet worried.

Though what seems to be a sure shot resolution to the mystery turns out to be just the tip of bizarre, with bodies piling up, different character stories getting muddled up and amidst all, the duo of pondering Morse and honest Lewis, sifting through the clues. But then perhaps the letter is deliberately misleading, and the remains may be Browne-Smith after all.
