Second in Art Marvik crime series, Dangerous Cargo by Pauline Rowson, published in paperback

Dangerous Cargo, the second in the series of crime novels featuring former Royal Marine Commando turned undercover investigator Art Marvik is now published in paperback by Severn House.

Dangerous Cargo is also published in hardcover and as an ebook on Amazon Kindle and Kobo.


Booklist says, 'Rowson’s superhero, Art Marvik, returns in another pulse-pounding adventure. The plot starts slowly but ramps up quickly, delivering more than enough action to keep adrenaline junkies reading.'

For his second mission with the National Intelligence Marine Squad, (NIMS) Marvik is detailed to attend the funeral of a man who’d officially been declared dead fifty-five years earlier. So who is the imposter and why did he assume the name of a dead man? What’s more, why did he suddenly show up in a Dorset coastal town in 1989, hook up with a local fishing family, and after fathering a child, disappear in 1990?

When an innocent woman is killed during the course of the investigation, Marvik realizes that the stakes are much higher than he’d previously thought. As he begins to uncover a trail of deceit, corruption and murder that spans over half a century, Marvik must confront a ruthless killer who will stop at nothing to make sure that the sins of the past stay in the past.

The first in the Marvik series, Silent Running was published in the UK and the USA in 2015 and  has been hailed by reviewers as,  'A tense, terrifying thrill ride that twists and turns with dizzying speed.'

Marvik is a troubled character, tough, highly trained, fearless, intelligent and fit but he is finding it difficult to adjust to life outside the marines. Marvik, like my other hero, Inspector Andy Horton, has a strong sense of justice, but whereas Andy has to operate within the boundaries of the law, Marvik can go outside it and often does on his missions working undercover and as a civilian attached to the UK's secret law enforcement agency, the National Intelligence Marine Squad (NIMS).  These crime novels, like all my others, are set against the backdrop of the sea.'

Dangerous Cargo is available from all good bookshops and on line. It can also be borrowed from UK and USA libraries.

Reviews for Dangerous Cargo


'Rowson’s superhero, Art Marvik, returns in another pulse-pounding adventure. The plot starts slowly but ramps up quickly, delivering more than enough action to keep adrenaline junkies reading.' Booklist


'Marvik's second outing is even more muscular than his debut, as Rowson edges her detective puzzles ever closer to thriller territory.' Kirkus Reviews USA

'I loved this fast-paced story with enough twists and turns in a plot that kept me guessing right to the last page. Pauline Rowson loses no time in plunging the reader right into the throes of the mystery on page one, and the pace is maintained right to the end. If you enjoy an exciting crime novel, where you can rush breathlessly alongside the hero as he unravels a complicated mystery while fending off one danger after another, then you should give this one a try. It won't disappoint.' Rena George 5* Amazon Review

"Dangerous Cargo is the sort of book where you can’t look away for a second, or you’ll be sunk, so to speak. Pauline Rowson is the queen of misdirection in this outing for former marine Art Marvik." Crime Review
