Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

FROM CWA CARTIER DIAMOND DAGGER AWARD WINNER COLIN DEXTERMorse was beset by a nagging feeling. Most of his fanciful notions about the Taylor girl had evaporated and he had begun to suspect that further investigation into Valerie's disappearance would involve little more than sober and tedious routine . . .The statements before Inspector Morse appeared to confirm the bald, simple truth.After leaving home to return to school, teenager Valerie Taylor had completely vanished, and the trail had gone cold.PRAISE FOR THE INSPECTOR MORSE SERIES"The Inspector Morse series, both the novels and the television dramas, are among the finest creations of British culture and are known and loved all over the world." Sydney Morning Herald"Let those who lament the decline of the English detective story reach for Colin Dexter"Guardian

Cover title : Colin Dexter Omnibus.

An Inspector Morse novel.

Library Journal Review

Much preferring a challenging homicide, Morse is decidedly disgruntled when he is told to investigate the disappearance of an adolescent school girl. But he has only to be patient, it turns out; in due course, a body is found with a knife in its back. As he pursues the killer beyond his familiar Oxford, Morse--one of the most human and flawed investigators in modern crime fiction--makes a few serious mistakes before the pieces finally fall into place. With a fine narration by British actor Michael Pennington, this 1978 mystery is just the ticket for Morse fans who enjoyed The Jewel That Was Ours (Audio Reviews, LJ 8/92) and The Riddle of the Third Mile (Audio Reviews, LJ 11/15/92) . -- Jo Carr, Sarasota, Fla.(c) Copyright 2010.
