Summary

The murder of Yvonne Harrison at her home in the Cotswold village of Lower Swinstead has 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 the 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 - as if the sergeant didn't have enough to worry about with Morse's increasingly fragile health.

But when Lewis learns that Morse was once friendly with Yvonne Harrison, he begins to suspect that the man who has earned his admiration over so many years knows more about her death than anyone else.

The Remorseful Day by Colin Dexter

The narration by Kevin Whately brings both the charters and freindship held between Morse & Lewis to liife. Hope that he narrates episodes of the spin offs Lewis and Endeavor in the future too.

Morse is sick

He still carries on but now it's time for Lewis to step into the limelight. Very compelling read.

Elegant end of Inspector Morse series

Sgt. Lewis as narrator is especially authentic as this closes the series. Ending so Morse!
