Amazingly, he also included a clause in his will that prohibit any future actors from portraying Morse — so it appears that the late John Thaw and Shaun Evans will be the only actors to portray Endeavour — at least for the next 70 years, until copyright expires. I find this very ironic — like one of his victims from his novels, Dexter is reaching out from the grave to command the future. Season five of Endeavour is slated to air in Until then, here are five outstanding British detective mystery novels to help you fill the void.
But one man has yet to tackle the case--and it is just the sort of puzzle at which Chief Inspector Morse excels. And why, if he refuses to take on the case officially, does he seem to be carrying out his own private inquiries? When Sergeant Lewis learns that Morse was once friendly with Yvonne Harrison, he begins to suspect that the man who has earned his admiration, and exasperation, over so many years knows more about her death than he is letting on. When Morse finally does take over, the investigation leads down highways and byways that are disturbing to all concerned.
Sayers I am jumping straight to the tenth book in this series for good reason. She also won infamy when she was accused of committing a murder herself. It took a timely intervention from the debonair Lord Peter Wimsey to save her from the gallows, and since then she has devoted her spare time to resisting his attempts to marry her. Putting aside her lingering shame from the trial, Harriet returns to Oxford for her college reunion with her head held high—only to find that her life is in danger once again. As the threats become more frightening, she calls on Lord Peter for help.
Among the dons of Oxford lurks a killer, but it will take more than a superior education to match Lord Peter and the daring Harriet. Inarguably the most revered detective writer of all time, choosing one book by Agatha Christie to be including on this short list was excruciating. Just after midnight, the famous Orient Express is stopped in its tracks by a snowdrift. By morning, the millionaire Samuel Edward Ratchett lies dead in his compartment, stabbed a dozen times, his door locked from the inside. Without a shred of doubt, one of his fellow passengers is the murderer.
