The Murder on the Links Book Description :
Hercule Poirot’s second appearance is “a remarkably good detective story” as the Belgian sleuth must determine who left a corpse on a golf course (The New York Times Book Review). After introducing Hercule Poirot in The Mysterious Affair at Styles, Christie brought him back three years later in 1923 for this “ingenious” murder mystery set in France (The New York Times Book Review). Instead of a hole in one, Poirot finds one in a hole—a body in a shallow grave next to a golf course. The man who summoned him from London to Merlinville-sur-Mer is the man who now lies in the ground, and the great Belgian detective, along with his companion, Capt. Arthur Hastings, intends to find out who put him there. Fatally stabbed in the back with a letter...

Last Bus to Woodstock is the novel that began Colin Dexter's phenomenally successful Inspector Morse series. 'Do you think I'm wasting your time, Lewis?'

By Friday evening Inspector Morse had informed the nation that the police were looking for a dangerous man – facing charges of wilful murder, sexual assault and rape. But as the obvious leads fade into twilight and darkness, Morse becomes more and more convinced that passion holds the key . . . Last Bus to Woodstock is followed...
