I have read all the books in this omnibus and more from the series. They are all very enjoyable and as much about the people as the crimes commited. They all follow the story of Inspector Morse, and slightly strange chap who loves nothing nore than a pint and a good crossword. However, he has an incredible mind, and with the help of his good friend and loyal companion Sergeant Lewis, he strives to solve the case presented to him. The series of books was transferred into a well-known and very popular tlelvision series, which is also thoroughly enjoyable. Set in the colleges of Oxford, these are enjoyable and worthwhile reads with a sense of mystery and intrigue. They provide a subtle insight into human nature and can make the reader both laugh and cry. I would certainly reccommend these books to anyone hoping to read a challenging crime novel that often have an uncanny twist!
