The body of Joanna Franks was found at Duke's Cut on the Oxford Canal at about 5.30 a.m. on Wednesday, 22nd June 1859. At around 10.15 a.m. on a Saturday morning in 1989, the body of Chief Inspector Morse, though very much alive, was removed to Oxford's John Radcliffe Hospital. Treatment for a perforated ulcer was later pronounced successful. As Morse begins his recovery, he comes across an account of the investigation and trial that followed Joanna Frank's death...and becomes convinced that the two men hanged for her murder were innocent.

    " Reginald Hill may not be the best narrator, but I sure do enjoy his Inspector Morse series. "

    " A book within a book that is admittedly pornographic. I'll pass. "

    " this book is so well written that I struggled through it but the plot was so boring it was a hard task. I do want to try other Inspector Morse novels, I got the sense from this one that the others are probably pretty good. This one was kind of dreary and inconclusive. It reminded me a little of Josephine Tey's The Daughter of Time: While in the hospital recovering from a severe ulcer attack, Morse begins reading a dull history book given him by his hospital roommate. The roommate dies in the first few chapters (conveniently if unfortunately) but Morse becomes fascinated by the mystery in the book that the dead man wrote, about the murder of a woman on a canal a century or so ago.
