Author of the D.I. Charlie Priest mysteries, British mystery writer Stuart Pawson began writing after a career as a mining electrical engineer and as a part-timer for the probation service. The latter work provides deep insights into the British criminal justice system, evident in his Charlies Priest mysteries, now thirteen strong and counting. The books have been referred to as “Yorkshire’s answer to Inspector Morse.” The series kicked off in 1995 with The Picasso Scam; latest is the 2010 A Very Private Murder.
