Publisher's Summary

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 wilful 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.

"It is a delight to watch this brilliant, quirky man deduce." (Minneapolis Star & Tribune)

Why was it abridged?

What would have made Last Bus to Woodstock better?

Let the wonderful Kevin Whatley read the unabridged book! I was so excited to see that he was narrating the books on which the tv series he was such a great part of was based, but so much of the book was left out,t hat I couldn't finish it.

Has Last Bus to Woodstock turned you off from other books in this genre?

Yes, if they are abridged

Morse

Any additional comments?

Thank you

I enjoyed the look at an other country 's police procedure , in a different time and custom. The fact of Morse letting us see his own human side was touching. But, of course, our hard boiled detective did all of his work being true to the procedure. At the end he goes home by himself... Tired, but true to his office.

Terrible editing

Excellent story. Performance also fantastic. But editing is atrocious. The work is abridged, and sometimes it cuts out in full flow and begins a new scene.

Just don't!

This is useless. The chapters cut out midway through sentences so I've no idea how much of the book I even heard! Couldn't give a star rating to the story because I couldn't follow it either thanks to Mr Whateley's woefully flat and hurried reading style.
I returned this one!
