Mystery & Suspense • 8 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1976

Michael Pennington's cultured English voice immediately promises a delicious Inspector Morse mystery in this second of thirteen in the series. Is Valerie Taylor dead or simply missing? After two years and still no body found, her parents receive a cryptic note, which Morse believes is a forgery. Morse and Sergeant Lewis once more interview the people attracted to this beautiful young woman, including the headmaster and the French teacher from her school, a casual boyfriend, and George Taylor, her stepfather. Pennington gives a certain lightness to the women's voices that is just right and plays each character with subtle nuances, except for Morse himself, who sometimes sounds too hoarse and throaty. Even so, the production is still an intriguing and enjoyable Inspector Morse mystery. P.G. (c) AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC/ JAN 02]
