Last Seen Wearing (Inspector Morse Series Book 2) Kindle Edition
|New from||Used from|
Last Seen Wearing is the second Inspector Morse novel in Colin Dexter's Oxford-set detective series.
Morse was beset by a nagging feeling. Most of his fanciful notions about the Taylor girl had evaporated and he had begun to suspect that further investigation into Valerie's disappearance would involve little more than sober and tedious routine . . .
After leaving home to return to school, teenager Valerie Taylor had completely vanished, and the trail had gone cold.
Until two years, three months and two days after Valerie's disappearance, somebody decides to supply some surprising new evidence for the case . . .
Last Seen Wearing is followed by the third Inspector Morse book, The Silent World of Nicholas Quinn.

The Plot: Young and sexually alluring Valerie Taylor is missing from here home in a village near Oxford. She has been missing for almost three years when Morse is assigned the perplexing disappearance. An earlier detective had worked the case but been killed in a traffic accident. Morse has to interview several teachers and headmaster at Valerie's school. Morse goes to Wales to interview a teacher named Acum The case has many red herrings along the way to being solved. Morse and Lewis see many of their conjectures proved to be false trails. One of the school officials is murdered before the Taylor case is solved.
What makes these books so good is the complex character of Morse. He is a single, middle aged man who has strong sexual needs. Morse loves opera especially the huge works of Richard Wagner. He also enjoys good wine and a fetching lady.
Once you are hooked on Morse you will enjoy reading all the books in the series. Dexter writes with wit, erudition and suspense. Recommended for all mystery fans!
enjoyed seeing that I had received a signed copy! Seeing Colin Dexter's message to another reader and his unmistakable signature was a real delight. By the way, I did verify it was his signature.ct

Is this a realistic portrayal of a tortured mind? I don’t know, but Colin Dexter obviously has a very clever brain able to construct such a piece of work and draw in the reader.
It gripped me from the word go. A bit oldfashioned in it's attitude to women but as the stories are set last century
you have to accept this!
Last seen wearing is one of those books that you just have to keep reading, and Mr. Dexter keeps you guessing until the very last page.
