Publisher's Summary

Quietly, rather movingly, Strange was making his plea: 'Christ knows why, Lewis, but Morse will always put himself out for you.' As he put the phone down, Lewis knew that Strange had been right...in the case of the Swedish Maiden, the pair of them were in business again....

They called her the Swedish Maiden - the beautiful young tourist who disappeared on a hot summer's day somewhere in North Oxford. Twelve months later the case remained unsolved - pending further developments.

On holiday in Lyme Regis, Chief Inspector Morse is startled to read a tantalising article in The Times about the missing woman. An article which lures him back to Wytham Woods near Oxford...and straight into the most extraordinary murder investigation of his career.

Quotes are tedious!

I returned this book as the lengthy quotes at the beginning of each chapter were very annoying. In the written versions of Morse you can skip these but on Audible you have to listen to them to get to the story. This quirk by Dexter often spoils a good storyline and just seems like 'showing off'.

Morse is irresistible to all females again

I do enjoy Sam West’s reading of these books. Lots of different voices and I especially like the Welsh Lewis. The plot is convoluted though and ruined, for me, by the impressive number of women who cannot stop thinking about Morse.
