Chief Inspector Morse was alone among the congregation in suspecting continued unrest in the quiet parish of St Frideswide's. Most people could still remember the churchwarden's murder. A few could still recall the murderer's suicide. Now even the police have closed the case - until a chance meeting among the tombstones reveals startling new evidence of a conspiracy to deceive.

"A brilliantly plotted detective story." (Evening Standard)
Twist after twist-makes this an engrossing listen. Morse's long suffering assistant (from the TV series in Britain) does a superb job of narration. I shall definitely be getting all of the other dozen or so episodes in this series-since they remind me of home. My only gripe was the last 2 minutes which I found unnecessary but which did not detract from the actual ending to the case. Morse has never been known to be spontaneous in certain emotional areas.....enough said though. Listen to it now-you will not be disappointed!
Another great Morse novel expertly read.
Once again Morse takes center stage as one the most interesting detectives in contemporary mysteries.
Whately's performance of Lewis is of course definitive.
