Will this be DI Hillary Greene's first failure on a murder case? When an elderly lady is stabbed to death in her own home, D.I. Hillary Greene is instantly puzzled. The house doesn't appear to have been robbed, Flo Jenkins herself was well-liked by her neighbours and she hadn't an enemy in the world. Also, it was widely known that she was very unwell and when the post mortem reveals that she was riddled with cancer and had only weeks, maybe even days left to live, Hillary's even more nonplussed. Why kill a dying woman? To make matters worse, her team is distracted by her sergeant, Janine Tyler's upcoming marriage to Superintendent Philip Mallow and subsequent transfer out of HQ. Then her new DC turns out to have something of a violent temper and an uncertain past. With no forensics, no leads and only a junkie nephew as a vague suspect, is this going to be Hillary Greene's first failure on a murder case?

That night he dreamed in Technicolor. He saw the ochre-skinned, scantily clad siren in her black, arrowed stockings. And in Morse's muddled computer of a mind, that siren took the name of one Joanna Franks . . . 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 the trial that followed Joanna Franks' death . . . and becomes convinced that the two men hanged for her murder were innocent . . .
