When a young woman mysteriously vanishes in North Oxford, Chief Inspector Morse unsuccessfully sets out to prove that it is a case of murder, until the arrival of an anonymous letter containing a cryptic poem provides a bizarre clue
The murder of Nurse Yvonne Harrington took place one year ago. The case was never solved. As the story opens, the police in Oxford receive an anonymous telephone call from an inmate in the local prison. The caller says he can identify the murderer. Chief Inspector Strange asks Morse to take over the case. At first, Morse refuses but the pressure from the Chief Inspector is such that he soon finds himself deep in the case. He and the long suffering Sgt. Lewis begin an investigation that takes them down highways and byways which eventually lead to unexpected and alarming conclusions. Conclusions that seem to implicate the highborn and lowborn in Oxford, Lower Swinstead, and the charming, thatched-roof village of Burford.
This will be the last Inspector Morse story. When you read the novel, you will understand why. It is certainly one of Colin Dexter's best-full of the distinctive touches that we have come to expect from Colin Dexter. The brilliant, curmudgeonly Morse; the stubborn Sgt. Lewis determined to best his boss at his own game. The unpredictable, twisting plot. The lovingly described Oxford with its grand spires and funky pubs and, throughout, the Morsean shtick on music, literature and popular culture.
