Publisher's Summary

'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....

Bad

Sounds like a automated robot and with that in your ears, how do you get your mind around the plot

Brilliant narration as always by Sam West

I tried listening to this because I am such a fan of Sam West's narrations. It's well written, but I found the story too unpleasant. The basic plot is the same as the TV episode but the details are quite nasty in places.

Best detective character ever devised?

This final Inspector Morse tale completes my reading/listening of/to all 13 of Colin Dexter’s masterpieces. I have all 13 in print also! Quite the best of a remarkably good collection. Samuel West’s narration of the three main characters, Morse, Lewis and Strange, was a most satisfying experience. It was like hearing the individual actors with their distinct accents!
Now if only the Lewis stories were to appear in Audible format......

Magnifique

Dexter at his best.
A fitting final chapter for our favourite detective. Sam West’s narration is the cherry on top.
