Publisher's Summary

Colin Dexter’s Chief Inspector Morse - the cranky, heavy-drinking, and exasperatingly brilliant sleuth of the Thames Valley Police - has become one of the most beloved detectives in fiction. Now, with this collection of 11 short stories, we can savor choice examples of his dry wit, devious cunning, and psychological insight at its best.
Colin Dexter tantalizes us with six Inspector Morse adventures, ranging from bite-size morsels of intrigue to longer stories for listeners to sink their teeth into. Then, for added variety, Dexter shows his range with five mysteries featuring new characters and some familiar ones: one story features that other great English detective, Sherlock Holmes, in a tale that rivals those of Conan Doyle himself. “Morse’s Greatest Mystery” and the other stories in this collection are a banquet for the mystery lover - rich, varied, and satisfying.
Stories included are:

"As Good as Gold"
"Morse’s Greatest Mystery"
"Evans Tries an O-Level"
"Dead as a Dodo"
"At the Lulu-Bar Motel"
"Neighbourhood Watch"
"A Case of Mis-identity"
"The Inside Story"
"Monty’s Revolver"
"The Carpet-Bagger"
"Last Call"

Critic Reviews

“Delightful.” ( Wall Street Journal)
“Brilliant…Inspector Morse is back, and more than welcome.” ( Houston Chronicle)
“Fear not. In Dexter’s dexterous hands, the short-form Morse is every bit as wily and irascible as he is in the popular Morse novels and the long-running PBS Mystery! series.” ( Raleigh News & Observer)

Great narrator; great stories

Nicely done mix of short stories! Narrator does a spot on job of pacing and characterization.

The stories were unexpectedly light and abrupt -- more like Father Brown, but without the smooth slide into the end.
The reader was most unpleasant for me. He tried for such a rough voice that he was nearly unintelligible, ran everything together, and didn't differentiate characters well.
