The obvious assumption is to assume the body to be that of the academic, but the truth is much, much more complex.

This is one of the best "Morse" novels. Not only is it an interesting, well-told story, with an ending which took me totally by surprise, but in this book we also find out about Morse's own past history as an Oxford student, cut short due to a disastrous love affair.

Very highly recommended.
On my TBR, but I still have #3,4 & 5 to read before I get to it. Though I'm not particularly convinced that they need to be read in any order. OTOH, knowing that "one of the best Morse novels" is waiting for me, gives me some incentive to push through and put them higher on my list.
