I wondered if any of you could help me, it's a long shot but it's a funny thing really.
When we lived in Leicester in 1980- 1987, I used to read a detective book from the library.When I say detective I mean that the author was a detective in the police force and he wrote about a certain detective in his books. (British)
Now, this is where it gets complicated, geoff and I was talking about it the other night and I just could not recall the authors name. Nor could I recall the detectives name!
I absolutely loved this man, both the author and the detective and I cannot understand how I forgot his name, although it is 20 years or more.
I remember one of the titles, I believe it was his last book, it was:
"The death of ......." (name of the detective)
As I said it's a long shot but do any of you know who I am talking about????
P.S. I have been to the library and many book shops and had a look around at the crime authors books, hoping to jog my memory a bit, you know, hoping to see his name. (if I did I know I would remember it) but I did not see anything.
I would appreciate it if any of you can help me......even if it is a long time ago!
