Black British private investigator JOE SIXSMITH is a gentle and unassuming, and in his gentle, soft-spoken way, a pretty funny guy, a former lathe operator who sings in a choir, and has appeared in several novels by Reginald Hill.
Hard-boiled? Not really.
Joe's just a genuinely nice fellow, a rumpled small town eye (Luton!) whose worst expletive seems to be "Shoot!" He's getting on in years, he's balding, and overly protective of his cat, if you ask me.
British author Reginald Hill is one of the most acclaimed mystery writers in the game, an international bestseller. He received Britain's most coveted mystery writers award, the Cartier Diamond Dagger Award, as well as the Golden Dagger for his Dalziel/Pascoe series. He lives with his wife in Cumbria, England.
