Pauline Rowson DI Andy Horton Novels on Kobo Promotion
The DI Andy Horton novels are set in the Solent area on the South Coast of England and feature the flawed and rugged Portsmouth copper, DI Andy Horton, a loner who estranged from his wife lives on a small sailing boat in Southsea Marina. Abandoned by his mother when he was ten and raised in a succession of children's homes Andy is tough yet vulnerable with a desperate need to belong and yet always on the outside. A fierce advocate for justice he often goes out on a limb and risks his job to see that the villains get caught.
There are twelve in the DI Andy Horton crime series with the latest Fatal Catch published by Severn House in 2015. In each novel there is a new murder mystery to solve and in The Suffocating Sea, Horton discovers that there is more to his mother's disappearance that he'd always been told. The subsequent novels in the series find Andy trying to balance his job while searching for the truth behind his mother's disappearance and struggling to get access to his nine year old daughter, Emma.
The DI Andy Horton crime novels have been hailed by reviewers as 'exemplary,' 'compelling' 'multi-layered'' and 'complex'. With Andy Horton being described as ' 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.'
