Here are 11 mysteries, 6 featuring Inspector Morse and Lewis, his baffled sidekick, of Oxford, England. The others offer similar surroundings except for a rewrite of a Sherlock Holmes story. Colin Dexter's British police procedurals are read entertainingly by Patrick Tull, who gives a querulous, rasping wisdom to the characters. Tull reads in his usual pointed, irascible style well suited to this series. His British accents and curmudgeonly approach are wonderfully satisfying. The stories themselves are characterized by unexpected plot twists--a woman who is really a man, for example--and make enjoyable listening. D.W. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 97]
