by Colin Dexter.
An Inspector Morse mystery. The body of Joanna Franks was found at Duke's Cut on the Oxford Canal on 22nd June 1859. On a Saturday morning in 1989 the body of Chief Inspector Morse - though very much alive - was removed to Oxford's John Radcliffe Hospital, where treatment for a perforated ulcer was later pronounced successful.
As Morse begins his recovery he comes across an account of the investigation and trial that followed Joanna's death, and becomes convinced that the two men hanged for her murder were innocent.
