First edition, first impression of the third Inspector Morse mystery, generally regarded as the scarcest in first edition. Very Good+ (or better): tight and square binding in sharp black boards; pushed to the spine tips and a few faint handling marks to the boards; some light marking to the edge of the page block; free of the browning that routinely afflicts early Morses, both internally and to the edge of the block, with bright white pages and endpapers; generally crisp and clean, presenting as unread; Foyles bookseller’s label to the foot of the front pastedown. The unclipped dustwrapper (£3.50 net stated) is likewise Very Good+: very bright and striking, unfaded and without darkening; a touch of crinkling to the extremities; presents beautifully in a removable, archival-quality Brodart protective cover. All orders are sent carefully wrapped in bubble wrap and sturdy cardboard. N° de ref. de la librería H388

Acerca de


Morse is convinced that one of the members of the Foreign Examinations Syndicate at Oxford murdered their dead colleague. But which one?

From the Inside Flap:

"[Morse is] the most prickly, conceited, and genuinely brilliant detective since Hercule Poirot."
--The New York Times Book Review

Nicholas Quinn is deaf, so he considers himself lucky to be appointed to the Foreign Examinations Board at Oxford, which designs tests for students of English around the world. But when someone slips cyanide into Nicholas's sherry, Inspector Morse has a multiple-choice murder. Any one of a tight little group of academics could have killed Quinn. Before Morse is done, all their dirty little secrets will be exposed. And a murderer will be cramming for his finals. . . .

"[Dexter] is a magician with character, story construction, and the English language. . . . Colin Dexter and Morse are treasures of the genre."
--Mystery News

"It is a delight to watch this brilliant, quirky man [Morse] deduce."
--Minneapolis Star & Tribune
