Summary

As he drove his chief down to Kidlington, Lewis returned the conversation to where it had begun.

'You haven't told me what you think about this fellow Owens - the dead woman's next-door neighbour.'

'Death is always the next-door neighbour,' said Morse sombrely.

The murder of a young woman... A cryptic 17th-century love poem... And a photograph of a mystery grey-haired man...

More than enough to set Chief Inspector E. Morse on the trail of a killer.

And it's a trail that leads him to Lonsdale College, where the contest between Julian Storrs and Dr Denis Cornford for the coveted position of Master is hotting up.

But then Morse faces a greater, far more personal crisis....

Superb

I never like Morse on the TV and shied away from buying these books because of that - I thought Morse a shallow character. But the stories give him more than flesh and blood, and develop the relationship between him and Lewis (almost) to a plutonic love story. The stories are read with sensitivity and panache - I’ve now bought them all!!
