    My first impression after reading was I have absolutely no idea what to think of this and it took me a while to figure out why I felt so confused Eventually I realized it was because I had never seen a detective in a crime series having been so terribly wrong before Really Morse does spent most of the time being extremely wrong he has a theory, a new clue appears that makes it clear that it can t have happened this way Another theory New clue Repeat almost endlessly.However these wrong My first impression after reading was I have absolutely no idea what to think of this and it took me a while...

    It s always a pleasure to return to the wonderful stories of Colin Dexter and Inspector Morse, that all too human English detective who drinks too much and realizes he needs to place his collection of Victorian erotica in a less conspicuous place on his bookshelf In this case, Victoria Taylor, an attractive seventeen year old disappeared two years ago Morse is handed the case following the death of Inspector Ainley who had just become interested following receipt of a note that Victoria was al It s always a pleasure to return to the wonderful stories of Colin Dexter and Inspector Morse, that all too human English detective who drinks too much and realizes he needs to place his collection of Victorian erotica in a less conspicuous place on his bookshelf In this case, Victoria Taylor, an attractive seventeen year old disappeared two years ago Morse is handed the case following the death of Inspector Ainley who had just become interested following receipt of a note that Victoria was alive and did not want to be pursued Morse is convinced she is dead and that possibly the real killer was sending the notes in hopes the investigation will cease Lewis, Morse s sergeant on the case, can t understand Morse s obsession with the case that Lewis believes is open and shut the girl is aliv...

    A girl disappeared and has been presumed dead forthan two years but is she even dead Reading this book was like walking through a maze so many possible ways to go and so many of them wrong Here s the solution oops, no, that s not it HERE S what happened nope, nope, nope Okay, this is itthis is what happened wrong again In a word, it was great fun.I m particularly enjoying the development of Morse s and Lewis s relationship Morse really does think highly of Lewis, but simply A girl disappeared and has been presumed dead forthan two years but is she even dead Readi...

    This was a very enjoyable read again I had been re reading all of the books that are on kindle and Colin Dexter died with 2 days reading left in this book, So Sad But he created a unique and memorable set of characters that are still entertaining millions of people.

    The second Morse book puts the Inspector in a position he s not entirely comfortable with a cold case of a missing person, rather than a murder with a body to work from That makes it all thefascinating as a reader the twists and turns of the is she isn t she alive on top of the possibilities of who did what to whom and when.I m still not entirely sure I m on board with Morse himself His scattergun nature is fine, that s often the way with brilliant detectives Sherlock and Frost bot The second Morse book puts the Inspector in a position he s not entirely comfortable with a cold case of a missing person, rather than a murder with a body to work from That makes it all thefascinating as a reader the twists and turns of the is she isn t she alive on top of the possibilities of who did what to whom and when.I m still not entirely sure I m on board with Morse himself His scattergun nature is fine, that s often the way with brilliant detectives Sherlock and Frost both come across as inconsiderate and random, and always get to the answer eventually The thing about Morse is it does really feel like he s not very good at his job and doesn t have the inclination to try any harder Whereas Frost bumbles about doing what he can and stumbles on good fortune, Morse has clues in front of him and disregards them, preferring to rely on his own thoughts.I don t know, I ve got oneof...

    Oh dear I ve come upon a series which might have been a perfectly good read were it not for seeing the TV version first This is the 3rd Inspector Morse I ve read and the second in the series The first I read was actually the 10th, I think Read out of order because it was just at hand I have to say, I don t really like them all that much For one thing, there is very little I find in the least appealing or interesting about Morse He s smart, I suppose But you don t really see the gears t Oh dear I ve come upon a series which might have been a perfectly good read were it not for seeing the TV version first This is the 3rd Inspector Morse I ve read and the second in the series The first I read was actually ...

    E una piacevolissima conferma, questo Ispettore Morse Stavolta prende ben pi di una cantonata e sembra perdere le speranze ogni volta che le sue intuizioni lo portano verso l assassino sbagliato e il movente mai quello Per difficile chiudere il libro e fare qualcos altro Dalla seconda met , dopo aver presentato ...
