His writing career began with the publication of A Clubbable Woman (1970), which introduced Chief Superintendent Andy Dalziel and DS Peter Pascoe. With their subsequent appearances, Reginald Hill has won numerous awards, including the Crime Writers’ Assocation Cartier Diamond Dagger in 1995 for his lifetime contribution to the genre.

Hill died in January 2012.
