9780804114912: Last Seen Wearing (Inspector Morse)

"Morse is a thoroughly convincing detective, and a very humane one, too."

--The New York Times Book Review
Valerie Taylor has been missing since she was a sexy seventeen, more than two years ago. Inspector Morse is sure she's dead. But if she is, who forged the letter to her parents saying "I am alright so don't worry"? Never has a woman provided Morse with such a challenge, for each time the pieces of the jigsaw start falling into place, someone scatters them again. So Valerie remains as tantalizingly elusive as ever. Morse prefers a body--a body dead from unnatural causes. And very soon he gets

one. . . .
"You don't really know Morse until you've read him. . . . Viewers who have enjoyed British actor John Thaw as Morse in the PBS Mystery! anthology series should welcome the deeper character development in Dexter's novels."

--Chicago Sun-Times
"Fascinating . . . Very satisfying."

About the Author:

Colin Dexter twice won the Gold Dagger Award, the Crime Writers' Association's honor for the best novel of the year. He was the author of many novels, novellas, and short stories featuring Inspector Morse. He died in 2017.

From AudioFile:

Michael Pennington's cultured English voice immediately promises a delicious Inspector Morse mystery in this second of thirteen in the series. Is Valerie Taylor dead or simply missing? After two years and still no body found, her parents receive a cryptic note, which Morse believes is a forgery. Morse and Sergeant Lewis once more interview the people attracted to this beautiful young woman, including the headmaster and the French teacher from her school, a casual boyfriend, and George Taylor, her stepfather. Pennington gives a certain lightness to the women's voices that is just right and plays each character with subtle nuances, except for Morse himself, who sometimes sounds too hoarse and throaty. Even so, the production is still an intriguing and enjoyable Inspector Morse mystery. P.G. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
