9 out of 10

Oh, this was my favorite Inspector Morse book so far! It happens to be #2 in the series, but (uncommonly for me) I'm not reading them in any particular order. Loved this one! It was unusual in that it deals with a missing person who is presumed but not proven to be dead.

So many twists and turns! Every time Morse comes up with the perfect solution where all pieces fall into place, he is disappointed again. Wonderful writing, to have so many realistic explanations that don't pan out. Great characters, too, and I am always happy to be reminded of my visit to Oxford in 2015.

Highly recommended!

Valerie 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 gets

one. . . .
