Another entry in the series about the Oxford detective, Morse and his sergeant, Lewis. Morse meets a woman at a party and is attracted to her (Morse is always falling in love!). One day, he happens to be near her house, so he goes to visit, but no one appears to be in. Then he discovers that she was home and she was dead. The verdict is suicide (Morse's romances never work out).
Morse and Lewis investigate. Morse is not sure that she killed herself. In any case, he wants to find out why she did it. He is sad about what could have been.
As always, Morse is witty and grumpy, and too short with the loyal and sensible Lewis.
