    Summary

    But Morse no longer needed to preen. He did it to keep himself in check; one couldn’t show up to work with a five o’clock shadow, after all. (He knew if he did that he’d get away with it; he had before. Half drunk and unshaven, those were always the best times.)

    But he wasn’t trying to attract a mate. Was he?

    Summary

    Superintendent Strange chuckles. “I see. Well, you’ll fit right in.”
    “Sir?” he asks.
    “I’m planning to having you be Morse’s bagman, if he finds you satisfactory, of course.”
    The happy ending we all deserve.

    Morse rarely mentions him. When he does, it’s usually at night in a quiet pub when he’s already several pints in, and Lewis is nursing his orange juice, wondering how this man became so jaded and lonely.

    Summary

    Lewis isn’t sure what he’s expecting from the man. Beauty, effervescence, something pure and untouched. What he finds is a morose old bastard with an acerbic wit and the temper of a wounded lion.

    Summary

    I've always been fascinated by Morse's reaction to the petrol bombing of the bookshop in Deceived by Flight, so this is a prequel (of sorts) to that, set in the early '80s.
