    If you have never read an Inspector Morse novel then this one might be a good one to start with Service of all the Dead is the fourth novel in the series written in 1979 Colin Dexter now seems much comfortable with his creations The quality of writing is vastly improved too and the plot is devious and nicely worked view spoilerThere is not just one murder but 5 all told and even then one of these corpses turns out not to be who it appears hide spoiler
