"Morse is a thoroughly convincing detective, and a very humane one, too."–The New York Times Book ReviewValerie Taylor has been missing since she was a sexy seventeen, more than two years ago. Inspector Morse is sure she’s dead. But if she is, who forged the letter to her parents saying "I am alright so don’t worry"? Never has a woman provided Morse with such a challenge, for each time the pieces of the jigsaw start falling into place, someone scatters them again. So Valerie remains as tantalizingly elusive as ever. Morse prefers a body–a body dead from unnatural causes. And very soon he getsone. . . . "You don’t really know Morse until you’ve read him. . . . Viewers who have enjoyed British actor John Thaw as Morse in the PBS Mystery! anthology series should welcome the deeper character development in Dexter’s novels."–Chicago Sun-Times"Fascinating . . . Very satisfying."–Book Sellers
Colin Dexter twice won the Gold Dagger Award, the Crime Writers’ Association’s honor for the best novel of the year. He was the author of many novels, novellas, and short stories featuring Inspector Morse. He died in 2017.
