Toni Coppers (b. 1961) is a crime writer. His thrillers are known for their ingenious plots and in-depth psychological descriptions of the characters. He writes about people of flesh and blood, few of whom are wholly good or evil. His books fall into two series, one about police chief Liese Meerhout and one about private detective Alex Berger, but they all work fine as stand-alone novels. One of the titles featuring Liese Meerhout was filmed as part of the television series ‘Rough Justice’. His novels have won him several prizes, including the Hercule Poirot Lifetime Award and the MAX Gouden Vleermuis Oeuvre Prize.
