This is book 4. Last bus to Woodstock is the first Inspector Morse novel, and is more carefully plotted than many subsequent books in the series, as the reader is not deliberately led astray.
It is claimed that Colin Dexter starting writing what would become Last Bus to Woodstock on a 1972 family holiday in North Wales. Sitting in the kitchen on a rainy Saturday afternoon he committed to paper a few paragraphs regarding a detective named Morse. Knowing where it would be set in Oxford and from then onwards the great series of novels progresses.
