The statements before Inspector Morse appeared to confirm the bald, simple truth. After leaving home to return to school, teenager Valerie Taylor had completely vanished, and the trail had gone cold. Until two years, three months and two days after Valerie's disappearance, somebody decides to supply some surprising new evidence for the case....

Having thoroughly enjoyed Morse on TV, I was disa0ppointed with this book. The plot was too fuzzy and did not resolve.

I absolutely love the characters and stories from Port Mabyn! Unfortunately Carola DUNNE will not be writing more because her publisher says they weren't popular.

Dr Ruth Galloway is flattered when she receives a letter from Italian archaeologist Dr Angelo Morelli, asking for her help. He's discovered a group of bones in a tiny hilltop village near Rome but doesn't know what to make of them. It's years since Ruth has had a holiday, and even a working holiday to Italy is very welcome!

Natalie Love has worked hard to have it all: she runs a successful theatre in Soho that's about to host one of Hollywood's leading stars. Her biggest supporter is her eccentric Hungarian Gran, and she even has the perfect yoga teacher boyfriend - Namaste! Life in the bright lights of London has always been Natalie's escape from her chaotic country family in rural Devon, and Jamie, the childhood sweetheart she left at the altar 15 years ago. And then he turns up at her theatre door....

A man has been mutilated and left to drown on the incoming tide, handcuffed in his van. With the murder bearing a striking resemblance to a string of sadistic killings carried out with surgical precision in 1990s gangland Manchester, it can mean only one thing: the killer is back. Transferred to the Major Investigation Team, DI Nick Dixon is assigned a new partner and sent to Manchester. Meanwhile, the gruesome murders in Somerset continue.
