If you have never read an Inspector Morse novel, then this one might be a good one to start with Service of all the Dead is the fourth novel in the series, written in 1979 Colin Dexter now seems much comfortable with his creations The quality of writing is vastly improved too, and the plot is devious and nicely worked view spoiler There is not just one murder but 5 all told and even then one of these corpses turns out not to be who it appears hide spoiler Chief Inspector Morse of the Oxford Homicide Division is supposed to be on vacation and he s thinking about a trip to the Greek Isles But then he stumbles onto a pair of mysterious deaths at a church in another division nearby The local officials have already written off the deaths as a murder followed by the suicide of the perpetrator They ve closed the books on both deaths, but something seems odd to Morse and so he begins digging into the situation, even though he s on vacation and even though the detectives who originally investigated the case are not at all happy with his interference.Morse recruits his faithful sergeant, Lewis, and manages to take over the investigation It s an intriguing one in that the murder victim was a guy with a gambling problem who was also responsible for counting the collection plate every Sunday His alleged murderer was the pastor of the church There are adulterers running loose in the parish, a missing boy, a church organist who s disappeared, and a very attractive woman who scrubs the floors in the church.Although a confirmed bachelor, Morse is a man with an eye for the ladies He loves his classical music, his beer and his mysteries, and by the time he gets through sorting through this complicated situation, it could turn out to be the best vacation he s ever had Either that or the last.This is a very good book in one of my favorite British mystery series Morse is a great, if prickly, protagonist, and this book should appeal to those who like an intelligent, complex mystery novel. rosado mp3Read by Terrence HardimanTotal Runtime 8 hours 10 minsDescription This time Inspector Morse brings the imposition on himself He could have been vacationing in Greece instead of investigating a murder that the police have long since written off But he finds the crime the brutal killing of a suburban churchwarden fascinating In fact, he uncovers not one murder but two, for the fatal fall of St Frideswides vicar from the church tower Morse reckons to be murder as well And as he digs into the lives and unsanctified lusts of the late vicar s erring flock, the list of the dead grows longer Not even the oddly appealing woman he finds scrubbing the church floor can compensate Morse for the trouble he s let himself in for So he has another pint, follows his hunches, and sets out to untangle the deadly business of homicide 4 Last Bus to Woodstock Inspector Morse, 1 3 Last Seen Wearing Inspector Morse, 2 3 The Silent World of Nicholas Quinn Inspector Morse, 3 3 Service of All the Dead Inspector Morse, 4 3 The Dead of Jericho Inspector Morse, 5 3 The Wench Is Dead Inspector Morse, 8 3 Morse s Greatest Mystery and Other Stories
