RIP Robert Barnard

Sad to hear that Robert Barnard has passed on to the great library in the sky. He was a prolific crime author, and while he was perhaps not as well known as he deserved to be, he wrote some excellent country crime novels among all his other works.

His obituary in the Daily Telegraph gives an idea of his range. He was a master of the pastiche, and he leaves a sad gap in the ranks of crime authors.
