An absolutely excellent book, and one which I thoroughly recommend. Morse is in hospital, suffering from a stomach ulcer. While there, he reads a book about a murder which occurred on an Oxford canal in 1860, where a woman passenger on a canal boat was found drowned, and the boatmen hanged for her murder. Convinced that a miscarriage of justice took place, he sets out to try and find out what really happened on that long-ago day.

A very unusual detective story, and one which thoroughly merits the awards it received. Highly recommended.
Sounds very much like a the sort of thing Robert Goddard would write. And I'm a big Goddard fan, so I think I'll give the Wench a go. Thanks for the recommendation.
