What's on in September from crime author Pauline Rowson

September sees the publication in the UK in hardcover of the NEW DI Andy Horton crime novel FATAL CATCH  published by Severn House on 28 September.  You can pre-order your copy at any bookshop in the UK or on line and on Amazon UK or reserve it at your library.

FATAL CATCH will also be published in the USA on 1 January 2016 and that can also be pre-ordered on Amazon USA.It will also be available in US libraries and in the Commonwealth.

It is the twelfth in the DI Andy Horton crime series and Andy is hot the heels of a new investigation while there is a new twist to his personal investigations into his mother's disappearance thirty years ago. 

Fatal Catch, like the other DI Andy Horton crime novels is set against the atmospheric backdrop of the sea in the Solent area of Portsmouth and the Isle of Wight on the South Coast of England.  Here is a taster of it.



Trust no one, believe nothing….

Detective Inspector Andy Horton is called out to examine a gruesome catch by two fishermen: a human hand. Is it that of missing violent criminal Alfie Wright – or is he the killer? And where is the rest of the corpse?   Soon Horton finds himself immersed in a complex case where everyone has a reason to lie and no one is who they seem. Assailed by doubts both in his personal and professional life, Horton desperately tries to keep his emotional feelings under control and his focus on his work. His instincts tell him to trust no one and believe nothing; he’s not sure though whether this time he’ll succeed …



 

Forthcoming talks in September 


Also in September I will be giving a talk to Southampton Health Service Retirement Fellowship on the 17 September and look forward to regaling the audience with tales of crime, fictional that is.

Check out all my talks and radio appearances on my events page


Aside from this I will be continuing to work on the third in the crime series featuring former marine commando Art Marvik. Silent Running the first in the series is now available in hardcover and as an ebook. The second Art Marvik crime novel Dangerous Cargo will be published in Spring 2016.

At the end of September I will then return to working on the thirteenth in the DI Andy Horton series which is already well under way. So lots more crime novels to come and adventures with both the flawed and rugged DI Andy Horton and the hunky fearless Art Marvik.
