UNCONVENTIONAL AS MORSE WILL HAVE Aas Morse will have a of esolving the mystery Chief Inspector Morse is one of the most uniue and compelling characters in British crime fiction and it s always fun to spend an afternoon watching him work I do have one minor nit to pick which is that as the climax nears Morse completely overlooks a major clue that is literally ight in front of his face As he struggles to make sense of something that seems to make no sense the eader is left to holler at Valerie Taylor has been missing since she was a sexy seventeen than two years ago Inspector Morse is sure she's dead But if she is who forged the letter to her. Im to pay attention to what he s seen with his own eyes If he doesn t snap to by the end of the book the eader will be left knowing the solution while Morse is still at sea Still this is a minor uibble and Last Seen Wearing is a very enjoyable ead My first impression after eading was I have absolutely no idea what
To Think Of This And It Took Me A Whilethink of this and it took me a while figure out why I felt so confused Eventually I ealized it was because I had never seen a detective in a crime series having been so terribly wrong before Really Morse does spent most of the time being extremely wrong he has a theory a new clue appears that makes it clear that it can t have happened this way Another theory New clue Repeat almost endlesslyHowever these wrong theories aren t comnpletely wasted many have just a tidbit that isn t completely wrong and collecting all those tidbits finally leads to the eal solution as it turns out he was wrong about having been wrong at one point However at no point it feels as if Morse is just aimlessly bumbling along having no idea what s going on His theories all make sense at the time You might accuse him of always looking for the complicated solution but then the actual solution is somewhat complicated and it s not like Sherlock Holmes ever went for the easy solution he just ended up being almost always ight the first timeI did like it but it was a bit too much and too concentrated towards the end At first they had a theory folowed up leads for a while found something that disproved the theory tried another theory On the final 50 pages or so they just had theory after Theory That Got Often that got often disproven only a few lines later and that did eventually get a bit iddiculousOverall one
OF THOSE BOOKS WHERE I WANTthose books where I want half star system because this was defenitely than three but not uite four Last Seen Wearing by Colin Dexter is the second Inspector Morse mystery I ve watched all of the episodes of the TV series based on the books and I ve also enjoyed both the follow on Lewis and the preuel Endeavour Having said all this it was nice to find the the book was still fresh and as much as some of the story seemed familiar I still had no idea where. 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 plac.

the assistant Head The uestion to be answered is whether Valerie is Head The uestion to be answered is Valerie is or has un away With many plodding first steps the case begins to interest Morse He s sure she is dead but a letter purportedly from the girl throws a spanner into his theoryIt was interesting to follow the investigation the stops and starts the threads that Morse and Lewis follow have to backtrack and then the new paths they lead to I had my ideas about the case and parts came to fruition but the ultimate solution was still a nice twist and also very satisfying Morse is an interesting inspector smart elying on intuition often following the wrong path but finding inspiration at the end Lewis is a ock steady and eliable and helps keep Morse grounded I ve enjoyed both of the first two books so far and will continue to follow Dexter s stories of his great investigator 5 stars This was a very enjoyable ead again I had been e eading all of the books that are on kindle and Colin Dexter died with 2 days eading left in this book So Sad But he created a uniue and memorable set of characters that are still entertaining millions of people I ead most of the Morse novels over 30 years ago and then followed them up by watching the Morse TV series I eally hadn t ealised until I listened to this particular book the extent of differences between the original books and what was done for televisionI got a little confused towards the end or did I momentarily drop off to sleep with the esult that I had to listen to the last hour again to be sure that I knew the way it all finished upLAST SEEN WEARING is 2 in the series and is full of ed herrings and false threads Morse leaps from one idea to another E someone scatters them again So Valerie emains as tantalizingly elusive as ever Morse prefers a body a body dead from unnatural causes And very soon he gets ,
