I took this from the left-overs of the flash mob in Oxford, since the dustman said he'll be back in half an hour and will through away what's still left.
I had read one Morse mystery before the convention and liked it. These are short stories, not as good and not all Morse. I've jumped over few and am now reading the last one with Sherlock Holmes, Mycroft and Watson. The style is very Sherlockian, I could not tell the difference between this and a real Doyle product, although I've read Doyle all my life. Apparently he is easy to copy, I've seen it done before. This seems to be the best story in the book.

The odd thing is that I just got another copy of 'Morse's Greatest Mystery and other stories', only it was twice as fat as this and had a different cover. This contains six stories, the fat one eleven (the same six + five others)!! Just how many times they are going to use the same title for different combination of mysteries?
The Sherlockian mystery was my favourite.

Inspector Morse short stories? Interesting!

(oh, I see kirjakko caught half of me in the photo :-D)

It was quick to read. "Dead as a Dodo" was pretty good, and the Sherlock Holmes story "A Case of Mis-Identity" was a wonderful surprise. I too have read the original Holmes stories many times, and Dexter did a great job creating a Sherlockian story. I laughed in the end of it - finally Watson got the last word!!

Like I could let a Morse pass my hands? Welcome home, sir.

Not bad but nothing memorable here either. Made a nice, light summer read on a rainy day!
