Reviews of Inspector Lewis:
The “Inspector Lewis” series rises high above predictable plotting. The writing is sharp in terms of its social incisiveness, where it takes us and how it gets us there. — New York Times, Ginia Bellafante
The Robbie Lewis presented here is a much darker and more complicated character than the somewhat bumbling bloke we’ve seen who worked with Morse over four previous series. — The San Francisco Chronicle, David Wiegand
