Colin Dexter

The Dastardly Past:  Colin Dexter.

Today’s post will be short, but I could not let the anniversary of the birth of Colin Dexter pass without comment.  I am a huge Dexter fan, and I love reading his books as much as playing Spot the Author in various episodes of the television series starring John Thaw.  I was heartened to learn that Colin Dexter came to writing mystery novels later in his life—his mid-forties.  I think it gives hope to those of us wanting to follow in his (impressive) footsteps as part of our post-children, nearing retirement plan.  We lost Mr. Dexter this March, but he left us an impressive legacy as consolation.
