London for research for Art Marvik marine crime novel and a talk to Hammersmith and Fulham U3A
Hammersmith and Fulham U3A Pauline Rowson talking about her Solent based crime novels
I also talked about my new hero, former marine commando, Special Boat Services Officer, Art Marvik who is introduced in Silent Running, published by Severn House on 31 March. I combined my visit to give a talk to members of Hammersmith and Fulham U3A with some research for the second in the Art Marvik crime series, which I am currently writing as Marvik finds himself sailing up the Thames on a stolen motor launch in order to evade a villain intent on killing him. More about that in due course.

Meanwhile in Silent Running, Marvik, adrift after leaving the marines and smarting from his first failed civilian mission seeks refuge in a remote cottage on the Isle of Wight. Then a visit from a former girlfriend and a missing computer scientist changes everything. In a race against time, Marvik is sucked into a dangerous assignment and a web of deceit that will need all his skills, and those of his friend, former Marine Special Forces Communicator, Shaun Strathen, to get to the truth. Their mission, to stop a ruthless killer before he kills again.
