annapi | 5159 comments Inspector Morse is in the hospital, and to relieve his boredom he starts reading a book about the murder of a young woman in 1856, and the subsequent trial and execution of the men accused. From the evidence presented Morse is of the opinion that the men were innocent, and starts investigating.

Interesting enough, though not as exciting as I was anticipating. I think Colin Dexter's writing style is just not my cup of tea because I can't connect with his characters. This is my second attempt at this series and though it's not badly written, nothing about it grabs me and makes me want to read another.

Jgrace | 3112 comments Josephine Tey did something similar with her Inspecter Grant. He spends his time in hospital trying to prove that Richard III didn't kill the princes in the tower. It was a dry story but I keep thinking I should read it again. I knew nothing about Richard when I read it eons ago. It might make more sense to me now.
