New Inspector Morse book out now!

My author's copies of THE COMPLETE INSPECTOR MORSE: From the Original Novels to the TV Series have just arrived. They look fantastic, as you can see from the photo above, and it gives me a pleasant thrill to hold a copy of my first hardback tome. The new book is an updated and revised version of The Complete Inspector Morse, a reference guide to the stories of Colin Dexter and the smash hit TV series it inspired. Back when the first edition was published by Reynolds & Hearn in 2002, it felt like the final word on Morse. But this year's Lewis spin-off has proven there's still life in Colin Dexter's creation.

Happily, the spin-off gave Reynolds & Hearn a reason to commission a new edition of the book, and me the chance to correct the many errors that crept into the 2002 tome. I did a cover-to-cover rewrite of the exiting material and added a lot of new matter, particularly about the Lewis spin-off. That's been ITV's biggest hit of 2006 and plans are afoot for more stories starring Detective Inspector Lewis, which bodes well for further editions of my magnificent octopus.

In the meantime, you can order THE COMPLETE INSPECTOR MORSE: From the Original Novels to the TV Series from any good bookshop simply by quoting the ISBN: 1905287135.
