Picture of Inspector Morse Driven to Distraction.

Driven to Distraction: The apparently motiveless murder of two young women points to a psychotic killer. Morse’s speculations on what they might have in common leads him to a local garage owner, Jeremy Boynton, who knew them both, and who arouses his suspicions and dislike.
