Publisher's Summary

Anne Scott's address was scribbled on a crumpled note in the pocket of Morse's smartest suit....

He turned the corner of Canal Street, Jericho, on the afternoon of Wednesday, October 3rd. He hadn't planned a second visit. But he was back later the same day - as the officer in charge of a suicide investigation

Critic Reviews

"The writing is highly intelligent, the atomosphere melancholy, the effect haunting." (Daily Telegraph)

The dead of Jericho won't leave you dead

Whately really is stellar in this. His performances of DeBryn, whenever he shows, are stunning. As for Morse, one would almost believe it's Mr Thaw himself!

Whoever hit upon the idea of Lewis voicing these, I wonder did they know they had gold in audio form?

I'm so glad these exist. They're great to snuggle into bed with.

Abridged

Some of the Morse plots work in the abridged versions but this one somehow doesn't - masterly narration by Kevin Whately but the plot feels disjointed and fractured somehow.

Thumbs down for Abridged Versions

I'm sure the full story is less confusing. Morse comes across as a morose bigot with few redeeming character traits.
