An English author with a distinctively more British tone, he has been creating his unique brand of crime fiction for some time now. Having built some of the most beloved series of all time, especially with his ever recognizable Inspector Morse, he’s a name to be reckoned with in the world of literature. With his attempt to progress the genre in a more cerebral direction he’s appreciated critically as he is commercially.
