The very last Inspector Morse novel . . . how will Morse bid his final farewell?Where does this all leave us, sir?' 'Things are moving fast.' 'We're getting near the end, you mean?' 'We were always near the end.' The murder of Yvonne Harrison had 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 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 . . .

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Remorseful Day This is the final novel in the Inspector Morse series. With an excellent plot, well-rounded characters and the deeply-flawed personality of Morse himself, this novel is a great ending to one of my favourite series of British mystery stories. Lewis shows such compassion and respect for his partner that I wept with him in the last page of the story. Well worth reading if you like the genre.
