Dexter keeps the two stories going superbly in a novel which fully deserved its Gold Dagger.
Patients no longer spend more than a few days in hospital and the relationships that were once built up between patients-nusring staff-doctors have gone.
The above is just background to a good detective story. Well worth the read
This book is about a Victorian lady who is murdered aboard a canal boat. As Morse lays in a hospital bed seriously ill, he is given a case that captures his inquisitive nature. Upon examining the police records of the arrest made, Morse discovers that a false arrest took place.
But just who committed the murder - if one took place at all? Murder, mystery, suspense, greed and the genre of the era - all add up to a riveting read. You will not be able to put this book down!
A simple must to read. By Sarah Clark.
Dexter is very readable. I love his gentle humour and insight into human nature as a counterbalance to the darker side.
