Overview

The Riddle of the Third Mile is the sixth novel in Colin Dexter's Oxford-set detective series.

The thought suddenly occurred to Morse that this would be a marvellous time to murder a few of the doddery old bachelor dons. No wives to worry about their whereabouts; no landladies to whine about the unpaid rents. In fact nobody would miss most of them at all . . .

By the 16th of July the Master of Lonsdale was concerned, but not yet worried.

Dr Browne-Smith had passed through the porter's lodge at approximately 8.15 a.m. on the morning of Friday, 11th July. And nobody had heard from him since.

Plenty of time to disappear, thought Morse. And plenty of time, too, for someone to commit murder . . .

The Riddle of the Third Mile is followed by the seventh Inspector Morse book, The Secret of Annexe 3.

I usually love the books in the Morse series but this one lost me completely. The resolution at the end was way too complex. I still don't really know what happened and I lost any interest in trying to follow the explanation. Pity, as I had enjoyed the first part of the book.

An enjoyable Morse. Perhaps too complex, or at least very contrived.

What is the connection between a missing Oxford don and a headless, armless and legless corpse? Inspector Morse is an aggravating but interesting character but the real problem is the plot. It is extremely complicated and farfetched. Any mystery that takes the detective five chapters to explain what happened is way too complex.

The one with the Battle of El-Alamein, Morse's first love and the dismembered corpse at Thrupp.
