Publisher's Summary

Morse sought to hide his disappointment. So many people in Haworth Hotel that fatal evening had been wearing some sort of disguise: a change of dress, a change of make-up, a change of partner, a change of attitude, a change of life almost. And the man who had died had been the most consummate artist of them all.

Chief Inspector Morse seldom allowed himself to be caught up in New Year Celebrations. So the murder inquiry in the festive hotel had a certain appeal.

It was a crime worthy of the season.

The corpse was still in fancy dress. And hardly a single guest at the Haworth had registered under a genuine name.

Kevin Whatley’s great, as usual; story is too :-)

1 additional comment: Morse dangles a participle. Sigh. (WHY did the editor not catch that error?!?)

Implausible plot

Kevin Whately does an excellent narration. I just find this plot rather implausible so it wasn’t as satisfying as some of the Morse series.

A Geordie Morse?

As much as I enjoyed this book, and I did, it was very disconcerting to hear Morse speak with Lewis’ Geordie accent
