" A whodunit sufficiently devious in design and cunning in execution to keep the most restless mind tied up in knots."--New York Times Book Review
Colin Dexter OBE (1930 – 2017) was an English crime writer known for his Detective Chief Inspector Morse (with Sergeant Lewis) series of novels, which were written between 1975 and 1999 and adapted as an ITV television series, Inspector Morse, from 1987 to 2000. His characters have spawned a sequel series, Lewis (about Morse's Sergeant), and a prequel series, Endeavour.
Dexter twice won the Crime Writer's Gold Dagger--one of them for THE WAY THROUGH THE WOODS--and twice Silver Daggers, plus a Cartier Diamond Dagger for lifetime achievement in 1997.--Wikipedia adapted
