The Remorseful Day - Colin Dexter The last Inspector Morse book. This book is not a fast paced book, but the reader wont lose interest. The book starts off rather slowly, and never reaches breath taking speed, but always manages to maintain a steady run.
This is an emotional book. By three fourth of the book it ceases to be a mere crime fiction but rather becomes a study of Morse's last days. But having said this the plot is masterfully done, all the elements of a Morse mystery are present.
But, for me the last 50 pages of the book were the best, where Morse realises that its time to "CROSS THE RIVER", and realizes the true nature of the crime and identifies the killer.
