Riassunto: Valerie Taylor is presumed dead after disappearing two years ago at the age of 17. But if she is dead, who wrote a mysterious letter to her parents saying, "I am alright so don't worry"? Not only that, a body has turned up, leaving Inspector Morse to reopen the case. Morse soon finds himself in for the challenge of his career - with every new clue leading him back to where he began.
From the Inside Flap: "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."
"Fascinating . . . Very satisfying."
