Sixth in the Chief Inspector Morse series set in Oxford. In this book, an Oxford don goes missing and Morse is contacted by the Vice Headmaster. A body later turns up, of course, but how did it get to where it was found and who would so savagely mutilate it? And is it really Dr. Browne-Smith's body after all? Enjoyable read, as all the Morse books have ever been for me. One of my favorite series.
another marvelous Morse murder case-is the body a missing professor? And why does the detective work take Morse through both seedy and high class brothels?
Inspector Morse isn't sure what to make of the truncated corpse found dumped in the Oxford Canal, but he suspects it may be all that is left of an elderly Oxford don last seen bording a train several days earlier. Morse must make the rounds of London topless bars and bordellos in an attempt to solve this case.
I really enjoyed reading this author. I have watched the series on TV and thought I would try one of the books. I wasn't disappointed.
I loved this book. It had so many twists to the plot that kept it interesting up to the last page! I have watched the Morse TV shows and that makes it even more enjoyable to read these books because you can picture Morse's facial expressions while reading the text. I already miss Morse and Mr. Frost(?), isn't it, who passed away.
