H. R. F. Keating was born at St Leonards-on-Sea, Sussex, in 1926. He went to Merchant Taylors, leaving early to work in the engineering department of the BBC. After a period of service in the army, which he describes as 'totally undistinguished', he went to Trinity College, Dublin, where he became a scholar in modern languages.

His first novel about Inspector Ghote, "The Perfect Murder," won the Gold Dagger of the Crime Writers Association and an Edgar Allen Poe Special Award.
