"' Where does this all leave us, sir?' "

"'Things are moving fast.' "

"'We're getting near the end, you mean?' "

"'We were always near the end.'"

The murder of Yvonne Harrison had left Thames Valley CID baffled. A year after the dreadful crime they are still no nearer to making an arrest. But one man has yet to tackle the case - and it is just the sort of puzzle at which Chief Inspector Morse excels.

So why is he adamant that he will not lead the re-investigation, despite the entreaties of Chief Superintendent Strange and dark hints of some new evidence? And why, if he refuses to take on the case officially, does he seem to be carrying out his own private enquiries?

For Sergeant Lewis this is yet another example of the unsettling behaviour his chief has been displaying of late . . .

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.
