Posted November 13, 2021 by Anne - Books of My Heart in Giveaway, Series on Saturday / 14 Comments

This is a new feature I developed where each month we will look at our favorite – the best – series in a genre or topic.

The topic here, by my definition,  is a series with main characters who are British police detectives.    These are the ones which came to mind.  I enjoyed some more than others.

Since I haven’t read everything, it’s a subset of the possibilities.  I’m sure I am forgetting some great authors. There are also plenty of authors I have yet to read. Please share your favorites with me in the comments, also.

My favorite British Police Detectives series are (in no particular order):



Richard Jury                                          Inspector Lynley                                   Inspector Wexford
by Martha Grimes                                   by Elizabeth George                                  by Ruth Rendell



Charlotte & Thomas Pitt                       Inspector Morse                           Duncan Kincaid & Gemma James
by Anne Perry                                                   by Colin Dexter                               by Deborah Crombie

    • Well I’m buying the Angela Marsons but haven’t read them yet. I also really enjoy the DI Ford series but it only has 3 books so far. Of course I have heard of Val McDermid but not read them. I’ll have to add it to the long list of things I REALLY want to read.

    I really liked the Inspector Lynley when they first came out, but lost inter after a while. Carol Graham is another.

  2. Normally I would say this is so outside my wheelhouse. HOWEVER, back in the early 2010s I started the Dylan Scott Mysteries by Shirley Wells. THEY ARE AMAZING!!! In fact, I think I may need to re-read. Loved them!!!
