Locations of the DI Andy Horton series of crime novels
These photographs were taken recently on a trip between Portsmouth and Gosport, which means a short ferry journey across the very busy and narrow entrance of Portsmouth Harbour, where my enigmatic detective, DI Andy Horton, often travels along with the marine police unit with Sergeant Elkins and Constable Ripley, in the pursuit of an investigation.
Gosport is particularly featured in DI Andy Horton number ten, Death Surge, when the investigation into Detective Sergeant Cantelli's missing nephew takes Horton to Haslar Marina, Gosport. The cover of Death Surge actually shows the view across the harbour to Gosport.
Arriving at the Gosport Ferry Terminal from Portsmouth, note the twin tower blocks here and in the cover above.
Here are some more photographs which give you a flavour of DI Andy Horton's patch.
