Synopsis

Last Bus to Woodstock is the first book in Colin Dexter’s bestselling Inspector Morse series and the basis for the much-loved television detective drama, starring John Thaw as the eponymous Inspector.

The death of Sylvia Kaye figured dramatically in Thursday afternoon's edition of the Oxford Mail. 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 . . .
