Publisher Description

"Superbly clue-laden...A complex and satisfying puzzle."
THE BOSTON SUNDAY GLOBE
The case seems so simple, Inspector Morse deemed it beneath his notice. A wealthy, elderly American tourist has a heart attack in her room at Oxford's luxurious Randolph Hotel. Missing from the scene is the lady's handbag, which contained the Wolvercote Tongue, a priceless jewel that her late husband had bequeathed to the Ashmolean Museum just across the street. Morse proceeds to spend a great deal of time thinking--and drinking--in the hotel's bar, certain the solution is close at hand--until conflicting stories, suspicious doings, and a real murder convince him otherwise....
"It is a delight to watch this brilliant, quirky man [Morse] deduce."

Joyous noise ,

The Jewel That was ours another excellent book by Colin Dexter!

I read all of Dexters bookmakers except The remorseful day. The last in the series of Detective E Morse. I think You can relate to the humanness of Morse! I can He’s older as I am loves puzzles& Ale as I do. He is a lonely man & hides it by his operas& crossword puzzles. I’ll miss Detective Morse in my bookshelf in front of Morse ‘s last book I put a airline unopened sized Bottle of Glenfiddich the scotch he drank as reminder.
