About this title

Synopsis:

'Morse switched on the gramophone to "play" and sort to switch his mind away from all the terrestrial troubles. Sometimes, this way, he almost managed to forget. But not tonight...' Anne Scott's address was scribbled on a crumpled note in the pocket of Morse's smartest suit. Her turned the corner of Canal Street, Jericho, on the afternoon of Wednesday 3rd October. He hadn't planned a second visit. But he was back later the same day -- as the officer in charge of a suicide investigation...'The writing is highly intelligent, the atomosphere melancholy, the effect haunting' Daily Telegraph

From the Inside Flap:

"[MORSE IS] THE MOST PRICKLY, CONCEITED, AND GENUINELY BRILLIANT DETECTIVE SINCE HERCULE POIROT."

--The New York Times Book Review
He meets her at a suburban party. They share a flirtation over their red wine . . . and he doesn't see her again. It's the old familiar story for Morse. Then one day he just happens to be in Jericho, where Anne Scott lives. Nobody's home--and Morse should know since her door is unlocked and he takes a quick look inside. Only later does Morse learn that the lady was at home, just not alive. The jury's verdict at the inquest is death by suicide. But that doesn't sit right with Morse, and he embarks on his own investigation into the tangled private life of a lovely woman, all the while feeling his own remorse of what might have been. . . .
"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
"A masterful crime writer whom few others match."

--Publishers Weekly
