For a year, the murder of Mrs. Yvonne Harrison at her home in Oxfordshire had baffled the Thames Valley CID. The manner of her death--her naked handcuffed body left lying in bed--matched her reputation as a women of adventuresome sexual tastes. The case seemed perfect for Inspector Morse. So why has he refused to become involved--even after anonymous hints of new evidence, even after a fresh murder? Sgt. Lewis's loyalty to his infuriating boss slowly turns to deep distress as his own investigations suggest that Mrs. Harrison was no stranger to Morse. Far from it. Never has Morse performed more brilliantly than in this final adventure, whose masterly twists and turns through the shadowy byways of passion grip us to the death.

I completed this book and series as my New Years Resolution - how sad to have this great series end! I tried to take my time reading so I could enjoy this book. I'll miss not only the Morse story lines and character, but also the challenge to my vocabulary!

Colin Dexter himself said that the last chapter was the best he ever wrote. (It was omitted from the, brilliant, TV series!)

So sad that John Thaw has died. I find the Inspector Lewis series, developed from the Inspector Morse series, starring Kevin Whately as good and recommend it.

A London Times bestseller - for me, the
best so far. Interesting plot, entertaining characters and dialogue, unexpected ending.
