Meet DI Andy Horton in Footsteps on the Shore
Over the next few weeks there is a feature on my website on one of the popular marine mystery crime novels starring the flawed and rugged DI Andy Horton and giving readers the chance to sample them. So if you're unfamiliar with them now is your chance to meet the enigmatic and hunky DI Horton and his sidekick Sergeant Cantelli in a murder mystery set against the atmospheric backdrop of the sea in the Solent area on the South Coast of England.

Friday the thirteenth begins badly for DI Andy Horton when he wakes to find his Harley has been vandalized and his boss, DCI Lorraine Bliss, has returned early from her secondment to HQ. Then, convicted murderer, Luke Felton, released on licence, is reported missing and a decomposed corpse is washed up in Portsmouth harbour. But before Horton can get a grip on either case, he’s called to a house where a woman he’d only met the day before has been brutally murdered. Is missing Luke Felton the prime suspect, or is it his body in the mud of the harbour? Horton is under pressure to get results, but things are about to get much worse for the beleaguered detective.
'Deserves mention in the same breath as works in the upper echelon of American procedurals (those by Ed McBain or Joseph Wambaugh for example) and their British counterparts, including the work of Peter Robinson and John Harvey.' Booklist, Starred Review.
'Andy Horton is an especially good series hero, a likeable fellow with plenty of street smarts and the requisite personal baggage – an abrasive supervisor and an antagonistic soon-to-be ex-wife. Procedural fans who haven’t already read Rowson should be encouraged to do so in the strongest possible terms.’ Booklist, Starred Review
