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.
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.

Many of the best mystery writers take a while to hit their stride. As book 1, the main (unique) characters are introduced. But the plot become too complicated. I could predict the killer - too obvious.
Very poorly written with minimal character development. Was free but total waste of time. would not recommend .
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.
A mystery reader's delight. Crusty Inspector Morse bluffs and blusters his way through clues and byways to discover whodunnit in this case that turns his sensitivities topsy turvy. The presentation is greatly enriched by Kevin Whitely's narration.
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.

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!
Performance acted very well by Kevin Whately
Translates better to TV though as extra characters a bit confusing.
