Collin Dexter Passed Away March 21, 2017

Colin DexterIt is with great sadness that I’ve learned of Colin Dexter’s passing today. He died at the age of 86 in his home in Oxford, southern England.

He was known for his Oxford-based Inspector Morse crime mystery novels (13 books written between 1975-1999).

He also wrote several short stories, which were the starting point for the popular British ITV series Inspector Morse starring John Thaw, which ran between 1987-2000.

The author’s publisher just announced today:

“With immense sadness, Macmillan announces the death of Colin Dexter who died peacefully at his home in Oxford this morning.”

Macmillan publisher Jeremy Trevathan said Dexter “represented the absolute epitome of British crime writing. “With Colin’s death, there has been a tectonic shift in the international crime writing scene.”

Spread the love
