    Morse, bored with his holiday, visits a quiet country church and looks into an old unsolved murder and suspected suicide which happened there on hallowed ground. He soon believes he is onto something and draws Lewis into the case, which is officially re-opened. If the church is an unlikely murder scene, its Vicar and his voluntary helpers are equally unlikely suspects. Lawson, the Vicar, is haughty and is said to be perverted. Among his congregation is Ruth Rawlinson, whom Morse is attracted to, but she proves to be having an affair with church warden Harry Josephs, another suspect. Paul Wilson is a very lusty organist and is close to Mrs Josephs. Jealousies and tensions abound. While Morse is wrestling with the quagmire of respectable hypocrisy around the church, it appears that a serial killer is at work.moreless

    Someone on the inside at the University of Oxford's Foreign Examination Syndicate is selling exam secrets. Nicholas Quinn, a member of the examination board, is in the right place to overhear something he shouldn't, and he is soon found dead at his cottage, poisoned with cyanide - but Nicholas was deaf. Then crossword compiler Philip Ogleby has his skull smashed in, and Morse suspects a connection. During his investigations, Morse is attracted to Monica Height. She works for the Examination Syndicate and may be mixed up in the corruption which led to Quinn's murder, and perhaps to Ogleby's as well.moreless
