A ticket to Ryde for Inspector Andy Horton in The Guernsey Ferry Murders

Image
  In THE GUERNSEY FERRY MURDERS, formerly published as Lethal Waves,  DI Andy Horton has crossed the Solent on the Wightlink Fast Cat ferry to  Ryde on the Isle of Wight in pursuit of his investigation into the murder of a vagrant found under a houseboat on the shores of Portsmouth close to the marina where he lives on his small yacht. He is on Ryde Pier where the Island train service runs from. He's also investigating the death of a woman found in a cabin on the Condor Commodore ferry to Guernsey in the Channel Islands.  Are the two deaths linked?  Was the affluent woman on the Guernsey bound ferry murdered? Had she any connection with the vagrant? And what has taken Andy to the Isle of Wight? Well I'm not going to spoil your enjoyment of reading the book by telling you.  But here's little bit of background on the Isle of Wight trains. Read more about the Island Trains and DI Andy Horton

On board the Condor ferry for research for THE GUERNSEY FERRY MURDERS

  THE GUERNSEY FERRY MURDERS opens in Guernsey when Detective Inspector Andy Horton’s meal with his old friend, Inspector John Guilbert of the States of Guernsey Police, is cut short when a woman is found dead in her cabin on the ferry from Portsmouth to Guernsey. When the idea for this crime novel came to me I contacted Condor Ferries and asked if they would mind me using one of their ferries as one of the settings. I am delighted to say they gave permission and went further than that in offering to open up the ship for my research.   Read more about my research on board the Condor Ferry
