Colin Dexter könyvei a rukkolán


Colin Dexter - The ​Death of Jericho (Oxford Bookworms)
Chief ​Inspector Morse is drinking a pint of beer. He is thinking about an attractive woman who lives not far away. The woman he is thinking of is hanging, dead, from the ceiling of her kitchen. On the floor lies a chair, almost two metres away from the woman's feet. Chief Inspector Morse finishes his pint, and orders another. Perhaps he will visit Anne, after all. But he is in no particular hurry. Meanwhile, Anne is still hanging in her kitchen, waiting for the police to come and cut her down. She is in no hurry, either.

Colin Dexter - The ​Silent World of Nicholas Quinn
Morse ​had never ceased to wonder why, with the staggering advances in medical science, all pronouncements concerning times of death seemed so disconcertingly vague. The newly appointed member of the Oxford Examinations Syndicate was deaf, provincial and gifted. Now he is dead . . . And his murder, in his north Oxford home, proves to be the start of a formidably labyrinthine case for Chief Inspector Morse, as he tries to track down the killer through the insular and bitchy world of the Oxford Colleges . . .

Colin Dexter - Last ​Bus to Woodstock
Beautiful ​Sylvia Kaye and another young woman had been seen hitching a ride not long before Sylvia's bludgeoned body is found outside a pub in Woodstock, near Oxford. Inspector Morse is on the case.

Colin Dexter - Az ​utolsó busz Woodstock felé
A ​Morse felügyelő rejtélyes esetei sorozat 1. része: Végzetes stoppolás, avagy mi köze a női emancipációnak a szerelővashoz? Morse felügyelő sajátos stílusban nyomoz egy fiatal lány gyilkosa után: jóféle söröket kortyolgat, illegális fogadásokat köt, furcsa kérdéseket tesz fel a derék Lewis őrmesternek, közben időnként Wagnert hallgat, és keresztrejtvényekkel tartja formában elméjét - és minden éjjel nőkről álmodik, így nem csoda, hogy egy kicsit szerelmes is lesz a regény végére. A meggyilkolt lányt utoljára a Woodstock felé tartó busz megállójában látták élve. Ki volt ő? Kinek és miért állt útjában? Az izgalmas krimiben a szálak mindinkább összekuszálódnak, de végül a puzzle darabkái mind a helyükre kerülnek - könyörtelenül. Újonnan piacra kerülő könyvsorozatunk az igényes krimik kedvelőinek nyújt színvonalas szórakozást. A több, mint tizenhárom regény és a belőlük készült filmsorozat után, melyet a BBC sugárzott, Dexter Morse felügyelője elfoglalta helyét az örökbecsű krimihősök; Sherlock Holmes, Hercule Poirot és Philip Marlow között. A sorozat most lesz olvasható először magyar nyelven!

Colin Dexter - The ​Remorseful Day
` ​Where does this all leave us, sir?' `Things are moving fast.' `We're getting near the end, you mean?' `We were always near the end.' The murder of Yvonne Harrison had left Thames Valley CID baffled. A year after the dreadful crime they are still no nearer to making an arrest. But one man has yet to tackle the case - and it is just the sort of puzzle at which Chief Inspector Morse excels. So why is he adamant that he will not lead the re-investigation, despite the entreaties of Chief Superintendent Strange and dark hints of some new evidence? And why, if he refuses to take on the case officially, does he seem to be carrying out his own private enquiries? For Sergeant Lewis this is yet another example of the unsettling behaviour his chief has been displaying of late . . .

Colin Dexter - L'ultima ​corsa per Woodstock
In ​questo, che è il primo romanzo della serie, due ragazze a Oxford attendono alla fermata l'ultimo autobus per Woodstock. Il bus è in ritardo e le due ragazze si incamminano a piedi sperando di trovare un passaggio. E lo trovano perché dopo un po' una macchina si ferma e le fa salire a bordo. Passaggio fatale per una delle due, che verrà ritrovata assassinata poche ore dopo. L'ispettore Morse inizia l'indagine con l'aiuto del sergente Lewis, suo aiutante (in questa e in tutte le avventure che seguiranno). La verità si fa strada con difficoltà e non sarà una scoperta facile né felice.

Colin Dexter - The ​Wench Is Dead
In ​1859, the body of a young woman was found floating in the Oxford Canal; her death led to a sensational murder trial, and two men were eventually hanged for the murder. In 1989, Inspector Morse is recovering from a bleeding ulcer in Oxford's Radcliffe Hospital. Morse is given a book by the wife of a recently deceased patient at the hospital. The little book called Murder on the Oxford Canal tells the story of the murder of Joanna Franks aboard the canal boat Barbara Bray. Morse is soon convinced that the two men hanged for the crime were innocent and sets out to prove it from the confines of his bed.

Colin Dexter - The ​Daughters of Cain
It ​was only the second time Inspector Morse had ever taken over a murder enquiry after the preliminary--invariably dramatic--discovery and sweep of the crime scene. Secretly pleased to have missed the blood and gore, Morse and the faithful Lewis go about finding the killer who stabbed Dr. Felix McClure, late of Wolsey College. In another part of Oxford, three women--a housecleaner, a schoolteacher, and a prostitute--are playing out a drama that has long been unfolding. It will take much brain work, many pints, and not a little anguish before Morse sees the startling connections between McClure's death and the daughters of Cain....

Colin Dexter - The ​Jewel That Was Ours
For ​Oxford, the arrival of twenty-seven American tourists is nothing out of the ordinary...until one of their number is found dead in Room 310 at the Randolph hotel. Then, two days later, a naked and battered corpse is dragged from the River Cherwell. A coincidence? Morse is determined to prove the link...

Colin Dexter - The ​Third Inspector Morse Omnibus
Three ​full-length murder mysteries are contained here, each featuring the popular fictional detective, Inspector Morse and his faithful Sergeant, Lewis.

Colin Dexter - The ​Secret of Annexe 3
"Morse ​sought to hide his two-fold disappointment... So many people at the Haworth Hotel that fatal evening had been wearing some sort of disguise - a change of dress, a change of make-up, a change of attitude, a change of partner, a change of life almost; and the man who had died had been the most consummate artist of them all." For the New Year's party celebration, hardly a single guest at the Haworth had registered under a genuine name or address. The reader knows Thomas Bowman suspects his wife Margaret of infidelity after finding a suspicious note in her handbag, but what does that have to do with the stage-black hands and clean towels left by the Rastafarian-costumed corpse of light eater Mr Ballard and the bottle of champagne taken away by adulterous welshing Palmers?

Colin Dexter - The ​Riddle of the Third Mile
"[Morse ​is] the most prickly, conceited, and genuinely brilliant detective since Hercule Poirot". --The New York Times Book Review Inspector Morse isn't sure what to make of the truncated body found dumped in the Oxford Canal, but he suspects it may be all that's left of an elderly Oxford don last seen boarding the London train several days before. Whatever the truth, the inspector knows it won't be simple--it never is. As he retraces Professor Browne-Smith's route through a London netherworld of topless bars and fancy bordellos, his forebodings are fulfilled. The evidence mounts; so do the bodies. So Morse downs another pint, unleashes his pit bull instincts, and solves a mystery that defies all logic. "[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 deduce". --Minneapolis Star & Tribune

Colin Dexter - Utolsó ​ismert ruházata
"Morsét ​gyötrő érzés kerítette hatalmába. Az elmúlt kijózanító, unalmas rutinmunkával teli hét alatt elillantak a Taylor lányról szőtt fantáziadús elméletei, és kezdte azt hinni, hogy a Valerie eltűnésével kapcsolatos további vizsgálódás sem jelentene mást, mint további kijózanító, unalmas rutinmunkát." Vajon feladja? Nem, Morse felügyelőt nem olyan fából faragták. Csak most jön a java! Hajmeresztő elméletek születnek a szép középiskolás lány tanárairól, szüleiről...És a holttest még elő sem került, csak a különös jelzések jönnek több mint két évvel az eltűnése után. Morse és Lewis őrmester végül összerakja a darabokat, és a kirakósból előtűnik Valerie képe... Colin Dexter stílusa elegáns, meseszövése fordulatos. A tizenhárom regény és a belőlük készült filmsorozat után, melyet a BBC sugárzott, Dexter Morse felügyelője elfoglalta helyét a legnépszerűbb krimihősök között.

Colin Dexter - Morse's ​Greatest Mystery and Other Stories
"DELIGHTFUL." --The ​Wall Street Journal In short mysteries so brilliantly plotted they'll confound the cleverest of souls, Inspector Morse remains as patient as a cat at a mouse hole in the face of even the most resourceful evildoers. Muldoon, for instance, the one-legged bomber with one fatal weakness . . . the quartet of lovers whose bizarre entanglements Morse deciphers only after a beautiful woman is murdered . . . and those artful dodgers who catch the cunning and very respectful Morse with his pants down. There are mysteries featuring new characters and some familiar ones, including the great Sherlock Holmes, and a royal flush of American crooks. "BRILLIANT . . . Inspector Morse is back, and more than welcome." --Houston Chronicle "Fear not. In Dexter's dexterous hands, the short-form Morse is every bit as wily and irascible as he is in the the popular Morse novels and the long-running PBS Mystery! series." --The Raleigh News & Observer

Colin Dexter - Death ​Is Now My Neighbour
The ​peaceful quadrangle of Lonsdale College seems remote from the shocks of the outside world - such as the shooting of a young woman in her North Oxford home. But things at Lonsdale are not as tranquil as they appear. The Master of the college is retiring, and two senior dons, Denis Cornford and Julian Storrs, are vying, discreetly but furiously, to succeed him. There are only two people to whom the coveted appointment means more than it does to Cornford and Storrs - their wives. Chief Inspector Morse, investigating the murder on Bloxham Drive, follows a trail that leads first to a tabloid journalist, then to the strip clubs of Soho. It soon winds back, however, to the university. For Morse and his partner, Sergeant Lewis, the question becomes: Is the Mastership of Lonsdale worth killing for?

Colin Dexter - L'ispettore ​Morse e le morti di Jericho
“Morta, ​morta, morta. E... Dio mio! Si era impiccata, a quanto dicevano. Una donna affettuosa, attraente, viva... e si era impiccata. Perché? Perché? Perché?". L'irritante, bisbetico ispettore capo Morse ammira le donne ma ha una certa resistenza a concludere. Una sera qualunque, a un ricevimento, incontra una signora bella e disponibile, dotata di uno spirito e di una grazia seducenti. Nonostante l'attentato alla sua testarda solitudine sia molto promettente, un misto di indolenza e di pessimismo porta l'ispettore a non continuare l'avventura. Ma sei mesi dopo, per una di quelle "ironie della vita" (per citare Thomas Hardy, di cui forse si avverte l'influsso in questa storia così amara), Morse, trovandosi per caso nel quartiere di Jericho a nord di Oxford dove la donna abitava, scopre la sua fine desolata. E proprio così, è un suicidio? L'istinto di investigatore di Morse non può appagarsi con tanta superficialità e comincia un'inchiesta che batte a tappeto tutte le persone e tutte le occasioni legate alla fine di Anne Scott: gli amanti, gli alunni, i colleghi del circolo di lettura, le signore del circolo del bridge, i vicini di casa - quelli maligni, quelli amichevoli e quelli solo indifferenti. Registrando, con stupore crescente per il lettore, quante persone qualunque potrebbero avere un buon movente per uccidere una donna così amabile.
