Love listening to a good crime story?  Then why not share in the adventures of the rugged and flawed DI Andy Horton or former Royal Marine Commando turned undercover investigator, Art Marvik.

The DI Andy Horton Crime Novels - cleverly plotted, gripping, 

multi-layered


Pauline Rowson's Portsmouth-set mystery plots are inventive and exciting, gripping but not gruesome, and full of thrilling twists and turns. They take us to the deepest, darkest corners of human behaviour but ultimately lead us into the light.

Her novels combine character-driven, emotional punch with the scale and complexity of plotting.  Our intrepid hero on this journey is Detective Inspector Andy Horton. A man very much defined by a tormented past, but with hopes for his future.

Set against the atmospheric backdrop of the sea in the Solent, Portsmouth and the Isle of Wight on the South Coast of England, Pauline Rowson's DI Andy Horton police procedural crime series has been hailed as "exemplary," "multi-layered" "cleverly plotted" with an "especially good series hero, a likeable fellow with plenty of street smarts and the requisite personal baggage"
