Author Andrew Taylor spent his childhood in East Anglia, and got an education at The King’s School, Ely, and Woodbridge School. Taylor was born October 14, 1951. He has worked as a freelance editor for a publisher, librarian, laborer, wages clerk, he built boats, and worked as a teacher. Since the 1980s, he has lived in the Forest of Dean (which is located on the borders of both Wales and England).

His wife works on the books with him, when she is not working as a photographer and artist; she is Caroline Silverwood Taylor. He has written all kinds of stories, for kids, thrillers, historical, essays, and police procedural. Taylor also writes reviews on different subjects, like crime fiction for different publications. His work has found its way to number one on the bestseller list.

In the year 2007, “The Roth Trilogy” was made into a three part drama for television that starred Emilia Fox and Charles Dance. It was given the title “Fallen Angel”.

His first novel, which is called “Caroline Minuscule”, won the John Creasey Memorial Award from Great Britain’s Crime Writer’s Association. Taylor is the only author to win CWA’s Historical Dagger two times (for “The American Boy” and “The Office of the Dead”). Cartier has given him their Diamond Dagger for a career of excellence in the crime writing field.

“Caroline Minuscule” is the first novel in the “Dougal” series and was released in the year 1982. A script that dates back to the medieval period sets off a treasure hunt. A postgraduate of history named William Dougal has low moral fibre and has extravagant tastes. He is just as likely to commit crimes as he is to solve them. That is why when he stumbles on the much hated tutor that he has, he does not call the police and instead sneaks away and plans on not having a fight with his girlfriend. Of course, this does not go unnoticed. James Hanbury, a suave man, enters the picture and reminds everyone that the murdered tutor was an expert on Caroline Minuscule (the Medieval script that may have a very modern message).

Fans of the novel found that the novel is thrilling in the second part of things, and the ending is odd and will surprise some (although, if you look closely enough, it is hinted at). Furthermore, the characters are well drawn, with a plot and style that is done very well. It is too bad that these books went out of print, as they really cook and keep things very interesting throughout. Pages fly by as readers must know what happens next.

“Waiting for the End of the World” is the second novel in the “Dougal” series and was released in the year 1984. Dougal has quit smoking, and someone is blackmailing him, making him work for his old rival James Hanbury. It is quite the tough time for him, to be sure. All he has to do is keep a lookout on Dr. Vertag, who leads a lunatic fringe survival group. It should be easy. The barman that tried to warn him away from this case is murdered, before Dougal has even gotten going on the case. Zelda comes back from Dougal’s dark and muddy past. She is big, beautiful, and black. She is kidnapped from his apartment. Naturally, he wants to rescue her, which dumps into a bunch of different criminal activities. James Hanbury lurks over everything.

Fans of the novel found that there is a hero that is a likable guy, interesting supporting characters, and great ending that has a twist to it. The story is simply brilliant, you will be moved along as one thing leads to another, to the very end. You will be up all night reading and reading the novel, trying to see what happens next. Some found that these books are better than the novels that Taylor is known for writing later on in his career.

“Our Fathers’s Lies” is the third novel in the “Dougal” series and was released in the year 1985. There is some unfinished business that Dougal and his father have that they have to sort out. It has a little to do with Celia Prentisse, who is William’s ex-girlfriend. Her father, a historian, is found drowned and the whole thing is called a suicide. Celia does not buy it for a minute, because his clothes (which he abandoned) were found with a brand of gin he did not drink, and a short volume of Schopenhauer’s essays. That really is not a lot to go off of, but it is enough to send his father (and her godfather) British intelligence officer Major Ted Dougal, who is retired and William off on the case. They find an arsenic poisoning that happened in the 1930s and a court martial that is still classified from World War One.

“An Old School Tie” is the fourth novel in the “Dougal” series and was released in the year 1986. James Hanbury has reformed himself. Or he would like to. He plans to marry a respectable bride, hoping that he will be respectable by extension. This is due to the fact that his bride, Molly, comes from both money and a good family. The day they return from their honeymoon, she is electrocuted. So the question remains, was it murder or was it an accident? Charleston Parva’s residents believe that it was murder, and accuse James of killing her as soon as he got her money. Feelings in the village soon grow tense. Hansbury turns to Dougal (his old friend and rival) for help, but Dougal is not even close to being convinced the guy is innocent. Dougal knows better than anyone that he is capable of murder.

Fans of the novel found this to be a quick read and a great murder puzzle for everyone to put together. Some find this novel to be a classic work of fiction. The novel is built like all good mysteries are; with clues hidden in plain sight, things are not as they might at first seem to be, lots of people who could have done the act, and stories behind certain stories.
