Citizens of Oxford, relax! Morse might be gone, but Kevin Whately's back to solve your murders...
-- Guardian Unlimited
A gripping detective drama featuring echoes of the past...
Inspector Robert Lewis, former sidekick to the legendary Inspector Endeavour Morse, has been on a lengthy assignment in the British Virgin Islands. Now he's back with the Thames Valley Police in the familiar territory of the English university city of Oxford -- five years after the death of his long-time police partner.
Lewis and the much younger Detective Sergeant James Hathaway investigate the death of an American college student, Regan Peverill. The trail leads to another student, Danny Griffon, a man with a family secret whose previous brush with the law was investigated by a certain Inspector Morse.
Meanwhile, Lewis new boss, Chief Superintendent Jean Innocent, has plans to move him off the front lines to a training assignment, which he is determined to resist.
Inspector Lewis also stars Clare Holman, reprising her role as pathologist Laura Hobson; Jemma Redgrave, Lizzie McInnerny, Michael Maloney and Jack Ellis. Morse creator Colin Dexter makes a Hitchcockian appearance as a college scout.
