If you’ve ever enjoyed watching Morse, Lewis or Endeavor on television, this collection of early Morse novels is highly recommended. The relationships between the characters aren’t quite solidified, and the stories aren’t necessarily sequential. But it’s fun to see that first meeting in Last Bus to Woodstock, followed by two later tales where Morse and Lewis work more naturally together. The mysteries are fascinating, logical, and quintessentially English, from English pub to bus-stop to hallowed halls of Oxford. There’s even a stay in hospital with a touch of history in The Wench is Dead!

Slow reading, complex mysteries, and thoughtful investigation; this omnibus is satisfying and thoroughly enjoyable. But now I really want to find the other books!

Disclosure: I found a second hand copy and I love it.
